Good for the Soul

Last night for Family Home Evening
we transplanted our seedlings into our garden.
First we talked about the parallels between growing seeds
and growing our testimonies.
We talked about how we saw our seedlings grow toward the sunlight and how Christ is like the sunlight in our lives.
We talked about keeping weeds out of our lives that would crowd out the sunlight.
The boys were so excited to plant the seedlings.
They ran back and forth from the bathroom sink to the garden with cups of water to carefully pour onto the newly transplanted plants after gently patting the dirt around their fragile stems.
And then they ate no-bake cookies
and stayed up talking and laughing in bed until I finally told them it was time to stop and go to sleep.

Gardening is good for the soul.

    1. I don't know why it has taken me this long to realize that FHE lessons ALWAYS go better with the boys when they can MOVE. :)
