The wonder of weeds

This weeks sparkenation.

I have spent several hours over the last two weekends weeding my garden. I'm preparing for Spring here in Australia.

I've also done a lot of thinking about the weeds that have gathered in my heart and mind. There's much I have had to get rid of, misguided intentions, useless emotions, clouded thoughts, actions I'm not taking that I know I must.

What weeds have gathered in your heart and mind that you need to get rid of?

I have reflected too on my Grandfather teaching me about the law of the farm as a boy. It's a law we all need to live in our own way.

You can watch and read what Grandpa taught me by scrolling down here.

There's wonder in weeds. They're alive as much as the flowers. Weeds gather and impose themselves in our hearts and minds. If we fail to pay attention and remove them we are hiding the flowers, the beauty our lives have for others.

Be remarkable.
Ian
