Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.
Robert Louis Stevenson
March 27th- what goes around comes around
You will reap what you sow.
What goes around, comes around is another way of saying we’ll reap what we sow. What we give away, will always come back to us. Our deeds good or bad, will repay us in kind. In other words, we usually get out what we put in.
Spring is the time to plant. We sow seeds so that we can reap a harvest later. Here is one of my favorite poems and I share it every Spring. Best advice when it comes to planting now and reaping later.
Plant three rows of Peas
Peace of mind.
Peace of heart
Peace of soul.
Plant four rows of Squash:
No gardens should be without Turnips:
Turnip for service when needed.
Turnip to help one another.
Turnip the music and dance.
Plant four rows of lettuce:
Lettuce be faithful.
Lettuce be kind.
Lettuce be happy.
Lettuce really love one another .
To conclude our garden we must have Thyme:
Thyme for fun.
Thyme for rest.
Thyme for others.
Water freely with patience and cultivate with love.
We reap what we sow—you should have a bountiful garden.
In our modern wold, there are some who see advice like this worn out and irrelevant but perhaps, you’ve been looking in the wrong place. What is old can become new when you shed a different light on it.
Before the reward there must be labor. You plant before you harvest. You sow in tears before you reap joy.
