The sun is breaking through the Bay Area fog and the rainless sky. Time to tend to our gardens and marvel at the everyday growth of our tomatoes and our bean plants are starting to climb. I have often thought I spend more money on fertilizer, plant food, tomato cages and plants then I would spend from buying from the farmer’s market. Then, if I didn’t put in the work and money to grow my own garden, I would be missing the joy of picking my first tomato or searching under vine leaves for cucumbers and zucchini. My Nonno’s garden looked like beautiful artwork. It was planted in perfect rows. Mine is not perfect, but I usually have a good crop.
I pray that soon our events will be going strong and highly attended. People have had their vaccines and are healthy and still careful, we will continue to be thoughtful of one another and take each day as a day of joy.
I read this story on Facebook and it struck a chord with me and I am sharing it with you. Do not let go, hold on tight, love each other and trust that the Lord will continue to bless us.
One day a man was crossing a bridge, but he was scared so he turned and asked God, “Can I hold your hand?” God said “No, my child, I will hold your hand.” He asked, “What’s the difference?” God replied, “If you hold my hand and something happens, you might let go but if I hold your hand, no matter what happens I will never let you go.” May the Lord hold your hand tightly in all your ways in 2021 and beyond.
Sperando di vedervi presto.
