“Love GOD, your God, and serve him with everything you have within you, he’ll take charge of sending the rain at the right time, both autumn and spring rains, so that you’ll be able to harvest your grain, your grapes, your olives. Deuteronomy 11:13,14 (The Message Bible)
Moses told the Israelites that God would take care of their gardening needs; all they’d need to do is plant the seeds and the rain would be provided and they could expect a plentiful harvest.
I used to love vegetable gardening—getting my hands dirty (no gloves for me). Eating fresh vegetables all summer long was healthy and saved money at the grocery store. Today, my lower spine would object to crawling around on the ground planting, pulling, and harvesting green beans and other crops, and I’m not so sure about getting dirt underneath my fingernails.
Now, there is an opportunity for me to garden again through a new state-of-the-art vertical aeroponic growing system called tower gardening (offered by Juice Plus+, a pure vegetable and fruit product in either capsules or chewable). The Tower Garden™ is perfect for small places as long as it can be exposed to sunlight—like next to my motor home this summer in Iowa! (For information about the product, I’d be happy to direct you to an authorized dealer for Tower Garden™).
Dear Lord, let us plant all that is good for us from what you have provided through your son, Jesus. Amen.
