January 2, 2021 (almost 1 year later)
I was thinking this morning about my Garden. When Covid hit, I just followed a nudge, built 1 raised cedar bed, and planted seeds. God said it wasn’t enough. So over the next few weeks, I built 6 more beds. I measured, cut the lumber, drilled, added soil, and planted more seeds. It was like following a recipe and hoping whatever you just put in the oven looks and tastes good whenever you remove it.
- People walking on the sidewalk stopped and looked in amazement. Many talked with me about it while I was outside. Some even said how much it inspired them to do the same thing …
- I fed my family.
- Shared my harvest
- Connected with local gardening groups
- Taught others how to garden
People smiled, and lives were changed including mine. All of this happened because I followed a nudge, trusted, and had faith that whatever the outcome, there was a purpose.
