I like what Barbara Bush said, "At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent."
Most individuals will agree that life swiftly passes by far to quickly. In this busy world that we live in, it is essential to take time with those that you cherish the most. Your family is unique and you determine how your time is spent, but always remember to take time to make lasting memories because that is what makes life so sweet.

I have said all of this to now come to the main point: “Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again." (Sarah Ban Breathnach) Expect the unexpected because we serve a mighty God!

When we moved to Tustin, California a little over two-and-a half years ago, the first chance I had I bought some tomato and radish seeds. Sheldon, being a good sport, went along with my endeavor. We planted the seeds and in a few weeks we noticed the growth. Much to my disappointment, everything died. However, the lesson was there; we planted something and watched it grow, even if it did not bare the vegetables that the package promised.
About three months ago , I noticed something growing that I did not plant. I am very tender-hearted to unexpected plants. I will allow it to grow until I determine that it is a weed, and then I show no mercy, and promptly pluck the dingy weed up and discard it! I kept watching this particular plant with keen interest. I even asked Ronnie if she thought it was a tomato plant. Being a city girl herself, she was not too sure, but I allowed it to continue growing. Maybe, just maybe, fingers crossed, could it be a tomato plant? Would I actually have vine-ripened tomatoes? I even dared to envision eating a toasted-tomato sandwich. Weeks, went by and then I was absolutely convinced, tomato plant. Okay, it earned a ticket to live.
What amazes me, is that I never planted this particular tomato plant. Further, I was not too thrilled about the location it chose, but there it was rooted and ready to grow. Miracles of all miracles took place, and I have enjoyed three tangy tomatoes!! But it does not end here, three more are still on the vine! Oh, I cannot wait until they become an unexpected treat for Sheldon and me. Life is so wonderful. Vine-ripened tomatoes are absolutely, undoubtedly the best!
I cannot end this post without comparing this small, unexpected surprise to how miraculous God works. When God chooses your destination, you will prosper; you will benefit those around you and make the greatest impact ever!
