"You won't ever win the war of the weeds by trying to pull them all up."
"Add the good stuff. The only way to overcome the bad stuff is to get focused on the good stuff."
Every day, I am grateful for the bounty of the restored plots and every day I seek out those ever present rough and rocky patches that need a dose of good stuff. It's a journey, but oh, such a beautiful one.
Peace and love to all from the farm today,
“Study this story of the farmer planting seed. When anyone hears news of the kingdom and doesn’t take it in, it just remains on the surface, and so the Evil One comes along and plucks it right out of that person’s heart. This is the seed the farmer scatters on the road. “The seed cast in the gravel—this is the person who hears and instantly responds with enthusiasm. But there is no soil of character, and so when the emotions wear off and some difficulty arrives, there is nothing to show for it. “The seed cast in the weeds is the person who hears the kingdom news, but weeds of worry and illusions about getting more and wanting everything under the sun strangle what was heard, and nothing comes of it. “The seed cast on good earth is the person who hears and takes in the News, and then produces a harvest beyond his wildest dreams.”
