wheat and tares

Jesus’ example of the wheat and the tares came to my mind this afternoon as I was ripping up weeds (actually big poke plants that had grown up in my garden…with my originally thinking they could be some flowers I had planted some time ago).  In my haste, I broke a tomato plant that had green tomatoes on it already (growing in a completely different bed than the other tomatoes…how, why, I’m not sure…maybe seeds from the compost there???).

How thankful I am that God is the Gardener of His growing children and does everything in love and patience and carefulness, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance!
