Seeds of Life

From the winds the colors of Autumn are slowing fading away revealing what looks like the end of life.   But from death comes the seeds that will produce something new.  The old life may crumble to the ground, but the seeds of life have been sowed.

Genesis 1:11-12 God created plants
Then God said, “let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seeds in it, according to their various kinds.”

And it was so the land produce vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds.
And God saw that it was good.

The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.  - Leo Buscaglia

Scatter seeds of kindness everywhere you go; Scatter bits of courtesy-watch them grow and grow. Gather buds of friendship, keep them till full-blown; You will find more happiness than you have ever known. - Amy R. Raabe

So our world may sometimes seem colorless and dead.  But with the right circumstances and that special touch that only nature and God can provide, the seeds we sow will continue to spread.

When we loose someone close to us.  They are not gone for the seeds they planted thru-out their lives will continue to grow and resonate into this world of ours.

Like nature your loving thoughts are like a seeds that you are always planting.  Within every seed is a part of you that  grows and become something beautiful.

Dedicated to those very special people
I know who recently lost a loved one.

Plant your seeds today
and have a
Good Morning…   Good Afternoon…  Good Night…
What ever it is to you…

Hey, Carrie :) Did I show up at the right time or what? Your post was absolutely inspirational to me and I thank you for that, girl
If we look at nature and realize that we, too, are part of nature, then the logical conclusion is that there is really no death at all; just a changing and renewing of the same life, different bud or flower - or SOUL. It's all the same, just renewed so as to add all the necessary ingredients to every other part of nature. Shoot, I don't have to explain that. You already know it, lol.
I have really missed your wonderful ideas to paper and fabulous photos, and I am SO glad to be back and run in and out of your posts over and over. They are all priceless :D

Reminded me of my brother . We almost lost him three times and hes home. Yesterday we went and took down some dead trees on his property , cut it all up for firewood helping anyway we can. I feel it today.
Have a great week.
