130. The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another’s, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises. ~Leo Buscaglia

I saw an act of faith today.
A man was on his knees–
not in a pew in a church
but in a garden planting seeds.

How awesome it is that living works of flowering art grow out of the dirt under our feet and from something as small and seemingly insignificant as a seed!  Also amazing is the fact that the Holy One planted seeds of greatness with a purpose within each of us.  Then He anointed our words, hands, and actions with the creative power to bring them to fruition.   But the real genius is that what flowers in us drops seeds of increased possibility into the lives of others just like a flower drops seeds in the garden where it grows.

For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.  ~Isaiah 61:11    ✝
