I will focus on the words of love that God has planted in me
Last summer, my daughter and I planted 20 cherry tomato seeds in a couple of flower pots. When the seeds sprouted, my daughter went to see the flower pots every morning and said ‘hi’ to them. She also measured their heights. As if they were trying to satisfy her concern and expectation, the tomato sprouts grew very fast every day and had thick leaves. I also watered them at the proper time and also tied sticks to support some of the thick stems so that they wouldn’t bend or break.
But non of them bore any fruit for months. We still hoped that they would grow even though it got cold because we were keeping them inside, but still there was no fruit in fall. Then my daughter neither waited for the plants to fruit anymore, nor did she pay any attention to them. I, too, often forgot to take care of them. Then winter came, and all the tomato stems withered. They looked very messy, so I cut them all off and threw them into the trash can.
While cleaning the flower pots, I thought about my seed of faith and was worried that mine might be growing like those withered stems.
I will not just try to grow outwardly just as the tomato stems did with thick leaves. I will focus more on faith and on the words of love that my God Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother has planted in me. I can’t wait to enter heaven by bearing abundant fruit of the Holy Spirit. Thank you Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother.
