A seed only flourishes by staying in the ground in which it is sown. When you keep digging the seed up to check whether it is growing, it will never bear fruit. Think of yourself as a little seed planted in rich soil. All you have to do is stay there and trust that the soil contains everything you need to grow. This growth takes place even when you do not feel it. ~Henri J. M. Nouwen
And thus You provide for the earth:
You drench it furrows;
You level it, soften it with showers'
You bless its growth.
Dear Jesus, our Divine Gardener, I trust in You!
