Planting Seeds

In a way, all of us are farmers. When we do a good job of preparing the soil and planting seeds, we can expect a nice harvest. I spent a summer in Arizona working in the cotton fields. My job was to get up at 4:30 am every morning and find the weeds in the fields. At times the temperature would approach 120 degrees. The owner of the cotton fields received a better price when the cotton was free of weeds.

In life, we reap what we sow. It takes a great deal of patience to wait for the harvest. If we fail to plant enough seeds, we get poor results. A new year is just 45 days away. This is the time to plan what type of harvest we want in our future. The seeds we plant may be cultivating our relationships with others. We may want to exercise more. Whatever we choose to plant, we must fertilize and water our seeds so they can mature.

Make sure you use a hoe to get rid of any weeds that try to interfere with your harvest. What you plant today will be your reward. Make a list of all the seeds you want to plant and get started right away. The sooner you plant your seeds, the sooner you will reap your reward.
