No matter what sort of plant we might converse about 1 thing reigns true. They stand regardless with anticipation of being fertilized, watered, pruned. Thus we could stand to adopt the same. We should stand, establish our root..our ability to use our God given senses to absorb, be revitalized each day through experience, love from others and Gods granting of Serenity. The opportunity to let go of the old won't be so bad ..it won't be so hard if you stand willing and open to be fertilized, watered and pruned.
John 15:2 Verse "Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.
