Take Root

My rocky yard…the seeds are planted. ๐Ÿค

What are you sowing?
What will you reap?
Will your harvest be plenty?
How heavenly your heap?

Placing the seed is the easiest part,
digging and raking go straight to the heart.
The surface seems scorched and barren at sight,
keep cultivating to find the soil that's right. 

New growth might occur
if seed is scattered or tossed,
Without proper maintenance,
you may experience all loss. 

That which you fertilize
will find certain success.
Without nutrients and attention,
it's bound to get stressed. 

Use the light of the sun,
block out all substitutes.
Given time, love, and patience
it's bound to take root. 

“Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love.” Ephesians 3:17

Have faith๐Ÿ’š

Happy Spring! ๐Ÿ’

  4. What a beautiful inspiring poem. I didn’t know you were a poet! It reminds me of those words from Galatians: “A man reaps what he sows.” It is the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of spring.

    1. Laurie, thank you. Iโ€™ve never really though of myself a poet; but I have many Iโ€™ve written over time. Itโ€™s strange. When they โ€œhitโ€ itโ€™s so fast a process in my mind. That verse inspires this. Happy Spring! ๐Ÿ’›


    1. Thank you so much for your feedback and lovely comments! That is so kind! Many motorcycles came by today and I saw a few heads turn at the sign. Bingo! โค๏ธ bless you too.


      1. As Brenรฉ Brown encourages, our lives are better when we assume everyone is doing their best. We can then encourage others, and lift them up, just as God does with us. Thank you once again for your kindness. ๐Ÿ’›
