Fruits of Labor and Waiting for God's timing

            Today, we noticed the fruits of our labor after some hard work.  What started out as a little tiny plant has grown into something large!  We watered it and as it began to grow; we had to get a wire funnel to hold up the weight of it.  After several months, we saw no buds growing and we were stumped.  Why was there no fruit growing?

            We tried different things like plant food and after a frustrated while we just let it be but we continued to water it.  Let it be known that we are trying to grow this in a bin on our back lanai because we live in a townhouse and have no backyard to grow it in.  Well, after letting it be and do its own thing, we noticed not only a bud but we have an almost grown tomato! 

            We also have 3 more blueberry sized tomatoes coming in and there are about 20 flower buds that will turn into tomatoes!  Sounds like a small victory but we were amazed to have grown produce on our lanai, having no experience!

            I couldn’t help but think of Psalm 46:10 of “Be still, and know that I am God.”  How many times do we feel the need to take everything on and then get frustrated and not give things time to grow in God’s timing? 

            Is there a time where something like this happened to you?  Or are you a plant expert that can give us some pointers?  I would love to hear from you!
