John 12:24 Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
Seeds, like a family, die out unless they find themselves in the correct external conditions. In taking the risk of growth, there is always a chance for life to flourish and multiply. My great-grandmother, Wha Soon Kim, crossed an ocean so I might live. These days, I spend time tending my own life, praying to create the necessary conditions for God to bless new life from hidden seeds.
MOVING FORWARD: Think about cultivating a salad or herb garden in your home during the winter months.
