Plant New Seeds. With Love.

Today's the day! Have faith and nothing shall be impossible.

Leave the past behind you.  Let love lead the way.

Great Things Grow From Tiny Actions. "if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move." (Matthew 17:20)

As William Jennings Bryan wrote about the mystery of the Watermelon --
I have observed the power of the watermelon seed. It has the power of drawing from the ground and through itself 200,000 times its weight. When you can tell me how it takes this material and out of it colors an outside surface beyond the imitation of art, and then forms inside of it a white rind and within that again a red heart, thickly inlaid with black seeds, each one of which in turn is capable of drawing through itself 200,000 times its weight—when you can explain to me the mystery of a watermelon, you can ask me to explain the mystery of God.
Bryan, a politician and best known as a prosecutor in the celebrated Scopes trail that would be fictionalized in one of my favorite theater works Inherit the Wind written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee which is also one of the greatest film adaptations of all time directed brilliantly by Stanley Kramer. 

What more could anyone ask for as a tribute to leaving the past behind, nevermore to be remembered. Than a different present, free, where the future is unlike the past in every attribute.





From ACIM - "the world in infancy is newly born. And we will watch it grow in health and strength."

Let the seeds we plant today be a blessing to those around us, uniting Lovingly with all the world.

With Love.

Another great moment from Inherit the Wind.  Love Spencer Tracy!

"An idea is a greater monument than a cathedral."  "Progress has never been a bargain. You have to pay for it... You can conquer the sky, but the birds will lose their wonder and the clouds will smell of gasoline."
