Seeds landing on pathways don’t have much hope of survival and seeds that attempt to grow among established weeds and brambles experience only restricted growth at best.

However, seeds planted in fertile ground have the best chance of growing, flowering and even producing food.

We have all been planted in different areas on this earth.  If we are cared for and we eat and drink, we live and we grow.  Whether we flower and bear fruit, depends entirely on each one of us and on the circumstances present to support our growth.

If we choose to reach out to assist and support others planted in different locations, perhaps even in different countries, it will certainly enable both sets of seeds to mature and then to bloom where they have been planted.

As wildflowers appear in the desert after it receives rain, so those, who have grown in good soil, need to water with love the dry soil around others who are struggling in the deserts of their lives.

As these seeds are nurtured and eventually assisted to bloom, they are able to open their petals and reveal their hidden beauty to the world. They can then offer something back in return.

Let’s ensure the seeds we have been entrusted to nurture are given sufficient help to reach their full maturity.

I’m Peter Mack and that’s life.
