Sow the seeds of love that will grow tomorrow

I looked at the front porch of our house last Sunday and had to do a double take. There was a lovely bunch of daffodils growing there. They were stunning, absolutely beautiful. I asked my wife if she had planted them and she said , "No."

They must have been planted by the last family living here. I forgot that we moved in last May and they had already gone by. This afternoon I stopped in front of them and just looked at them. I said a prayer of thanksgiving. I was blessed by what someone else had done.

It reminded me that the good we do today will often live on long after we are gone. We plant seeds today and God waters them and makes them grow so that in his time others can benefit and enjoy what we began.

So go out and plants some seeds today. Be intentional and do some random acts of kindness. Bless someone who can't bless you back. Then let God make it grow.
