The Trampled Garden, Shared words by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

The Trampled Garden

He gave you the seeds.

He brought the rain. (except for Texas)

He brought the sun high in the sky to provide heat.

And then the moon to give cycle to the day and growing cycle.

Did you remember to plant the seeds?  When we have the seeds in our hand, we have a responsibility to plant those seeds and take care of them.

When you hear the word of the Lord, (seeds) do you plant them and use them in your life sharing them with friends, neighbors and strangers on the road? Do you read in the bible and get nourishment and support to uphold you as you share the word of God?

If you are too busy in life, you are obviously living on the edge and have forgotten to plant those seeds. You might be walking all over the ground where you dropped them in your haste.

Let's avoid those trampled gardens.  Busy feet have ground the seed and broken it into pieces. No food or flowers can grow from a trampled neglected garden.

Care for those seeds and bring what is there to fruition. Others will benefit from the glory and joy of what you nurture and grow.

Words of my heart,

Matthew 13:4-8
" As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.  Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
