More on planting…
One night, a young woman dreamed she was walking in the mall and noticed a shop on the second floor she hadn't seen before. The name over the door said, 'Your Heart's Desire'.
She crossed the store's threshold and was enveloped in a charming fragrance. The store had a homey feeling, with shelves full of fascinating items. A short, smiling dumpling of a lady was behind the counter.
What is it your shop sells? asked the young lady.
Just as the name implies, everything your heart desires! came the purring answer.
Oh! I know what I want! exclaimed the girl, Peace, happiness, love for everyone, and...
Wait a minute, giggled the cashier. You don't quite understand. We sell whatever your heart desires. But we don't sell the finished product, we sell the seeds and you have to choose the ones you want to plant.
I couldn’t resist the chance to share this little story with you all today. I know I recently did a post on planting, but this one seemed so meaningful that I thought you might appreciate it too.
Sowing seeds is something we all can do. Ways to make our hearts desire come true. The old saying that what we sow, we reap is so very true.
Look around for a place to sow a few seeds.
