Happy Fresh Start Friday! Please bear with me as I try to send this via my IPhone! I am thrilled to be en route to Chattanooga to see my boy play for the Chattanooga FC .

It’s been a week of little changes. I can’t wait to share them with you. Today I herald a fun change-I planted, well, Rob and I, planted a cutting garden!

Nothing delights me more than hosting dinner parties and decorating a pretty table! There’s something about beautiful plates, shiny silverware, and little vases of fresh cut flowers. So, I thought…why not plant flowers that I can use on my table? Oh, I know people have done this for centuries, but it is a first for me! Last summer we started with lavender and hydrangeas. This summer we’re adding zinnias, dahlias, snapdragons, daisies and hmmm…several more! I am so excited.

I had to laugh when my husband suggested starting them from seed, though, because I have never started flowers from seed. Why do that when you can get them already grown? He promised it would be more rewarding to watch the process. “I am not so sure,” I smiled. “I like instant beauty…”

So, trusting his inclination, I bought seeds and together, we sowed. Ann (http://www.aholyexperience.com/)
Voskamp lovingly calls her man, “The Farmer,” I now call my man, The Sower!”

(BTW, Rob just asked what I was doing and I told him, “I’m blogging ’bout our garden.” He smiled, “They sprouted, you know!)

While digging, Rob quietly said to me, “Patience. That’s what this takes.”

Now, I am patient in some things but not in other things. I want the full grown promise without all the digging, watering, fertilizing, and waiting.

Does this ring a bell inside your heart?
Is there some area of life requiring some patience today? Well, join me as I learn to wait well. The sprouts will come!
