In early spring while I was out weeding in the flower garden, I saw this very small plant, I knew it wasn't a weed, I also knew that I had not planted it! I go out to my flower gardens to weed about three times a week, and fertilize twice a month, I decided to help this plant, I kept the weeds away, watered and fertilized it, this once small plant kept growing and growing, it soon became a vine, blossoms appeared, and then these tiny gourds came forth! Just tickled me pink. Why, because fall is my favorite season and I love decorating with gourds, and pumpkins.
The vine is just outside my back door, I pass it several times a day, as I have watched this plant evolve, a lesson also evolved, and it is this...
This plant was not intentionally planted it was placed by someone or something else besides me, maybe a bird, or it was accidentally dropped. This I do know, this little plant decided it was going to be the best plant ever and produce more fruit than any other plant! It has taken up most of the area, crossed over into the herb garden and just keeps right on going and producing! I just watch and say 'You go Girl"
Many of us have been planted in places that we might not have chosen or wanted to be! When this plant came forth it could have decided to just lay there and die, instead it's roots searched for fertile soil to grow, and I, the Gardner, noticed it and began to nourish it! Just as God, who notices us, nourishes us through His Word, Presence, family and friends; nothing gets by the Master Gardner's eyes or ears, God hasn't forgotten us, He knows exactly where we are at!
