Growing can mean many things. In the pic to the left I thought that I would share some of my herbs with you. I love my flowers, my herbs and my veggies and love to share them with friends and family. My biological mother, (Cheryl) told me once that my grandmother had such a green thumb that she could stick a shovel in the ground and it would grow. She said she believes that was passed onto me...and I am grateful.
This was the first year that I started my plants from seeds. I actually grew some basil, tomatoes and peppers inside to put out this summer. A friend of mine (Lacy) kept telling me that I could do it, that he believed in me, so I tried...and it worked! I have a grow light on a cart that I start my plants on now and anxiously await the time when I can begin my next seeds. He even bought me the cutest little terrarium that I will share with you later on. I was actually able to start a cutting from both honeysuckle and a cabbage rose this year so I am making progress. It is amazing. I am growing as well with these additions to my life.
The last growth that I believe in, is my spiritual life. I am a Christian, a Believer-as you will, and I believe that life is a growing process when it comes to relationships, not only with friends and family but also with my Heavenly Father. I am not a "Bible Thumper" so to speak, but I have have deep roots from the Midwest Bible Belt where my grandfather was a Southern Baptist Preacher and my family has always done their best to instill God's Word into me. I am so grateful for it. I am not the perfect Christian. I struggle with things on a daily basis, but I know that God is there for me, no matter what. I asked Him into my life at age 9 and have known that He is here since then. I hope that you will look His direction not only when you come into life's difficulties, but also obtain a relationship with Him. He longs for it. I am always working on mine and I am so proud of the fact that He loves me for who I am.
