planting seeds.

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

I'm discovering, as I become older and hopefully wiser, that there are themes that emerge for each figurative season in my life. Lately...

Lately, I had been assessing (re: worrying about) the potential payoffs of my time investments and questioning how I should plan and execute my now very flexible day. As I was writing, I came across this quote at the top of the journal page, with this verse on the facing page:

"Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don't know if profit will come from one activity or another — or maybe both." - Ecclesiastes 11:6 NLT

The most succinct and appropriate wisdom revealed at the exact time I needed it. And just as I was thinking, I would really love a visual reminder of this, boom. Clementine Daily (my fave new site) beat me to it. It's like God knew that extra nudge would hammer that little sentence home, pushing me away from my comfort zone of tidy, tangible, and immediate outcomes.

This month, and maybe even this entire fall season, I'll be planting seeds. Small but powerful seeds of time, energy, sweat and faith. Lots of sweat. Lots of faith.
