Plant Carrots - Pray for Melons - NOT!

I was blog hopping yesterday and came across a post (I'm so sorry, today I can't remember which blog it was ... if it was your blog - let me know and I will link to it!!) where the blogger talked about planting seeds of frustration and anger in her mind and then being disappointed when her life wasn't happier. It was a great post.
Today, I came across this picture on Facebook:

And it got me to thinking ... am I planting the right seeds in my mind?

If I want a happy life, do I plant seeds of kindness and love and charity in my mind?

If I want to be a successful writer, do I plant seeds of hope and determination and work and goals in my mind?

What kind of life do you want? What seeds are you planting? Will you be surprised with what sprouts up?



  1. This is a great thought! So very true.

  2. Well said, Margo. We should all be checking what we've planted in our gardens.

  3. What was it Jesus was talking about when he said, "The seeds that fell in among thistles grew up but was choked by the weeds, cares, troubles and false glamour of desires." (Paraphrased)
    Any unhealthy thoughts you hold in your mind will tend to crowd out the good thoughts, well that's been my experience in life. Happy thoughts, happy life.

  4. So true. And then with my real outdoor garden--I've got to figure out a better way of handling those pesky deer that have chewed my tomato plants down to nubs, despite the hanging pie pans and marigolds (although some other critter ate all of my marigolds.)
