Creation

 Coming to you today from a place I know well. What’s this place called?  Doubt. Faith and doubt don’t mix. Like oil and water. Or do they?  Writing is like weeding a garden. Trying to protect the good, while getting rid of the unwanted pests. In my garden between the sweet, red tomatoes are the weeds that try to overwhelm the fruit. I’m always still amazed tomatoes are a fruit. As I’ve gotten down on my knees plucking the unwanted to preserve the desired, I’m reminded of how parents do the same. My will has run wild much to my own detriment. I hate to admit when they’re right. I don’t like to say that I’m still young enough to not know everything. With each and everyday I only learn when I put my selfishness aside in the admission that with acknowledgement that as long as I breathe, I am being molded into the best creation I can be.

  1. Young or old, less young or less old, we never know everything. Each day must be seen as one more lesson, one more learning. Fruits, tomatoes, weeds are part of our learning.

  2. Try not to doubt yourself. Just hang on. The writing might take you to a whole new world! Studying the perspective is the hard part. Just don't overthink. Keep going!

  5. Whatever age we are, there is still much more we can learn about ourselves. I love the garden analogy...weeding of the mind is similar to weeding the garden...I can wholly relate to that idea!
    Really inspiring post, thank you so much.😊😊

  8. I'm afraid it's been too hot for me to weed but from a distance my garden looks great all green, the closer you get though you see the green are the weeds. Great words

  9. As in a garden there is always work to be done, such is life isn't it, we always have room for improvement, something that needs tending too :)

  10. We can be our best selves only at the point of death, for it is then that we have had all the time we've been given to grow and learn, adapt and change, to pick the weeds and nurture the fruit. Thank you for your insight.

  11. Such thoughtful words. I had to smile about the weeds after all they are only plants in the wrong place. Maybe if they were moved to somewhere else, given a different place they might thrive and be loved. Have a lovely day xXx

  17. I read your wise words right after my 7 year old wanted proof that I was right and he was wrong. It is hard for them, especially when they are young.

  20. Well, some don't admit that they're still young enough to not know everything, but you just did. That's special in itself. And hopefully, we don't stop learning til we leave this earth. : )

    Have a blessed week Regine.

  21. Always the Lord is weeding and molding us to conform to His likeness - not always a 'nice' process, I admit.
    Stay safe

  26. It does seem that sometimes the weeds are hiding, trying to choke out the good fruit and surprise us along the way. Good for you in recognizing it and using it as a tool to mold you to His will.
    Blessings and hugs,

  27. Dearest Regine,
    Your short stories from the heart are very well done!
    As for tomatoes, they are legally a vegetable. I've picked tons of them and know what they are...
    Yes, dealing with weeds is an endless battle!
    Hugs,
