I have a plant that likes to set its own course. It tends to follow its own path to the ground and rocks in the garden below. In tending to it I have become acutely aware of my own choices. Looking at this plant as if I were the plant and God were the gardener. How patience and kind of Him to take the time to set me on the right course. Daily checking my vine to make sure the it is growing up the path set before me. Pruning off the old blooms and encouraging the new. Providing me with the sun and water that I need to grow. Makes me grateful and causes me to continue to stay my course.
