WHERETHE HECK ARE THE ROSES? Please be aware as you read the following pages of the concept of gardening, this picture applies to both the spiritual and physical realms. When a plot of ground is prepared to cultivate a harvest, there are several steps that need to be taken. First, you need to determine: Where is a good location for the planting? What are the external environments? Are they good for your intended crop? When you have decided on a location, then you need to till the soil, dig to the levels that are appropriate for your crop, add nutrients if necessary, etc. Then you need seeds. The seeds you choose will produce the crop you are expecting. You insert the seeds properly into the ground that is prepared. The next step is to resurface the ground in accordance with the proper depth, etc. Now it is just a matter of maintenance. You will be required to provide the proper amount of water, in most cases. Time is the most important element. The seeds will only produce at their own pace. The elements inside each seed are programmed to work in a certain manner in order to produce their unique fruits that contribute to the harvest. As you read these pages, you will see these concepts in action as they relate to the actions and prayers of people, and the harvests thereof.
