Last week I had the unique opportunity to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House. The assignment: gardening! Now, I am not a gardener, nor have I ever worked with any real gardening tools besides a lawnmower. The gardening involved pruning Daylily bushes. Now, to take care of the Daylilies’, the process requires trimming away any browned and dead portions of the perennials. In addition, pruning requires the gardener to leave about four inches of healthy stem to grow during the spring. When I first looked at the Daylilies, I did not understand the big deal about pruning and did not think it would make much of a difference, but I started the process. I really enjoyed the process of working in this beautiful garden. During my pruning activity, I started to think about my own life and reflect on the parts of my life that have needed pruning over the years and continue to need pruning. During different seasons of my life, God has trimmed away the unhealthy stems in my life and cut them down to the core. After the pruning, the restoration process begins and then He restores what has been destroyed during different seasons of my life. My question to you …. What is God pruning in your life right now?
