We are already on Day 48 of our ‘100 Days to a Fruitful Summer’ Challenge! We are almost at the halfway mark! I’m so excited!
This is a good place to check your progress. Have you harvested any of the fruits of your labor? What have you accomplished so far?
Different plants are ready at different times. My brothers dug potatoes the other day. I have always loved the potato digging time. Ever since I was a little girl I would get excited to see (at that time, my Daddy) someone go out with the garden spade, stick the tip of it into the earth where the plant had died back, push down with their foot on the spade, and bring up a shovel FULL of potatoes! It always amazed me that the one piece of a seed potato could make all of these potatoes. I was also intrigued that the plant was withered and dying above the ground and here were these awesome potatoes, underneath! Oh, what a delight!
So, what about you? Are your potatoes ready for harvest? Do you feel like maybe you are withered? Well, maybe – just maybe you need to dig a little deeper. Maybe the good stuff is right there just under soil!
Some of the most amazing things have to be dug up from the earth…gold, diamonds and precious gems, silver, and other things deemed ‘precious’. There is some work that goes into digging these things up. Much more work than digging the potatoes out of the garden. It could be an unwritten rule that the more precious the ‘harvest’ the harder you have to dig for it.
Make sure you are digging for what you really want in life. If those precious things were easy to get, they wouldn’t be so valuable! This is exactly the same with your own precious goals and dreams. They wouldn’t seem as precious if you already had them.
Today’s Challenge: 1. Tell me what you have already harvested this summer. 2. Dig deeper! The good stuff is probably just below the surface!!!
Life’s a Garden; Dig it!
Look within. Within is the fountain of good, and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig. ~Marcus Aurelius
