Do you ever get to the end of the dirty clothes pile, have all the laundry done and folded, and then find a pair of jeans hanging on the hook? (these happen to be mine) My dear mother-in-love used to call it Seed for Tomorrow. It might be a dirty dish that we missed in the cleaning up after supper or a a sack of trash that didn't get burned with the other garbage. It is a negative connotation and yet a positive one too. That "seed" will grow more of itself.....dirty laundry, dirty dishes, garbage too, but I'd rather think of Seed for Tomorrow as something good.
Sowing a seed of kindness -- a kind word spoken, a kiss on the cheek, doing a chore for somebody so they don't have to do it this time. I think of God's Word as seed. Seed planted in the soul-soil will surely grow and bring forth fruit. One of my Hubby's favorite scriptures is, "You reap what you sow," Perhaps it is because we are agrarians that we like the analogy of sowing seed so much. It is such a good word-picture.
Now to sow a little sugar-seed!
A sweet recipe that I made for our Sunday Breakfast this morning.
I call them Cinna-Muffs. I wish you could see the cinnamon streusel inside.
