A Thought of Shalom for Shabbat
This year my beds are getting a make over, some have shown wear and some I just know instinctively that they need to done! Even though they look fine, years and experience has taught me that my plants need deeper beds. I feel it, they need the change! I have strawberries and they are in one of the boxes, I'm not sure it is a good idea to move them, they are just beginning to their fruit. I may have to leave that part of my box intact until a better time.
Isn't life like that? Re-read what I just wrote and I know HaShem will illuminate a couple of areas that are similar! I am not a baby gardener anymore, I am learning to be intuitive. I know more and understand better.
That understanding requires me to do things differently. That is just the season I am in! That is what comes with time.
So as you ponder this Shabbat and rest, think on these things. Be confident and know that with time comes experience. Trust is essential as is faith! There will be times of mowing, uprooting, demolishing and building up. But toward the middle of the summer when the tomatoes are sweet and the basil abundant and the flowers speaking beauty, know that is what all that beginning was for! Enjoy it and know that next year you will have more experience and you"ll be the wiser for it!
Shabbat love to you friends
