This image helps me to realize that there is a seed growing within me. One thing we know about seeds is that if they remain connected to their stems, and the plants receives appropriate amounts of sunshine, clean water, are free of pests, and perhaps even pesticides they will blossom.
There are many blossoming branches in our world, so many places that provide nurturing soil for plants to grow. There are also many places where the seeds are destroyed.
May I, may we, nurture what is within our reach, value the work we do, and realize the connections we have with one another.
As I drove to an appointment, a phrase from the Lord's Prayer came to mind: thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. That is another way of expressing my desire this morning.
