To be grounded we must first nourish the ground in which we want to grow. In doing so we allow ourselves to create and shape our life the way we want it. As I look at my gardens eager to plant my flowers. I know that there are weeds to pull, ground to hoe, and fertilizing to spread to prepare the grounds. In the same way I must tend to my own growth if I wish to unfold and bloom. Pulling the weeds that crowd my thoughts, fertilizing my body with the proper nourishment, and quenching my inner thirst with the spirit of God. Grounding myself with this kind of preparation is sure to produce the kind of growth I’m looking for.
