A message pertinent to Labor Day

 This is what my Silverado Sage looks like after I have carefully
fertilized,
watered,
and
weeded.

Uncannily similar, yes?

My conclusion:
Sometimes, God does not require my help.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

  2. So true. Sometimes He reminds us, like He did Job, that He created the universe. Alone. I was not around to help. And He did a pretty awesome job.

  15. Good sharing, thinking. Made me grin. Mine, similar, needs the occasional weeding and watering, partly b/c of the lack of rain in our days and the extra heat. BUT the sage doesn't need as much as others. HALLELUJAH!! Glad that plant was dropped into my life. I'll be expanding it over the next two or three years so it can have my back yard, nearly alone.

    Thanks for the thoughts and the lovely photos.
