Mesa Moment #25: Watermelon From Our Garden

September 15, 2011

Tiny watermelon
Growing a bit
Getting much larger- almost ready to eat! 

It was beautiful and delicous!  

My garden always teaches me about God.  I am amazed that something this yummy, large, and tasty all began by planting a tiny seed.  Watching this watermelon grow was most certainly a Mesa Moment for me.  Every time I went outside to wander around my garden I was filled with awe at what was happening right in front of me.

How is it that so much growth and fruit can come from one tiny seed?  Isn’t that the same for our spiritual lives?  One tiny seed can produce much fruit!
