"You Reap What You Sow" ; Garden of Life - Plant What You Want

The old saying," You reap what you sow" is very true.
Have you ever noticed that it seems that most people sow [plant] nothing but onions & lemons? Why would you want to only reap onions & lemons? Don't we depend on our life garden for our growth & nourishment? You can sit around with nothing but onions & lemons if you want. I don't want to! You can feast on onions & lemons all day long. All you will have to show for it are sore, red eyes & an puckered up,sour look on your face. Is that really how you want to go through life? If that's how you walk through each day, what do really expect life to be like?

I say if life sucks, cut down that lemon tree.If your tired of crying, pull those onions out of the ground. Remember , onions can grow like weeds if they were heavily planted. They may try to pop up from time to time. When they do, just take the time to weed your garden [life].

What should you plant instead? That's for you to decide. God gave us all a beautiful garden called life. It's up to each of us what we will produce in our garden [life]. Don't be a lazy gardener & let the weeds take over.

So, what if you plant the wrong thing? That's the beauty of being in control of your own garden [life], you can plant new things whenever you want. It's called free choice. You are responsible for your own garden. Take responsibility!!! Sure weeds [sorrows,problems,etc] spread. So from time to time, weeds from someone elses' garden may sprout up in your garden. Just pull the weeds out & plant something better in their place.

Remember, each day as the sun rises, it's a brand new day. Yesterday is gone- done- completed. Don't waste today on anything that was wrong yesterday. You can not go back & undo anything. You have a brand new start... TODAY! What are you going to do with it? How's your garden, today? Time to plant something, new & wonderful?

Until next time....
