There is a garden center close to my house that always has the best gardening quotes on their sign. Anika and I had a favorite: “We’re sow excited about spring, we wet our plants.”
But they have a good one up right now, too: “He who plants a garden, plants joy.”
I think it’s true. One of my favorite things to do each day is go out to our garden in the evening. I love to see how everything is growing. I love to water it or pull a few weeds. I think it’s right and good when we take joy and pleasure in growing things. I think God wants us to enjoy the beauty.
Are you growing a garden this summer?
