Adriana Trigiani is one of my favorite fiction writers. My name has been on on the long list requesting this book at our local library for quite some time. Finally I got the notice that it was my "turn".
So last night I was comfortably settled in a lawn chair, enjoying the first chapters. If you've visited my yard and garden blog in the last 24 hours, you already know the rest of the story!
I looked up between chapters and saw this bush
as it WAS
and as it COULD be.
I couldn't rest until it was done!
Of course that meant that my husband couldn't rest either.
And so we went to work.
What a difference!
We pruned. We hauled off the branches.
We transplanted some hosta.
I couldn't help but thinking about how the Master Gardener,
seeing what IS and what COULD be,
is pruning me...hauling off some branches...
transplanting and watering.
And He won't stop until He's finished!
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you
will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
