My neighbor had more tomato plants than he needed so he gave me a couple. I planted them in a large pot on my patio. Almost immediately something started chewing on the leaves so I kept a close eye on the two little plants. I had no idea what type of tomatoes they were but before long it was obvious they were going to be tall. Little blooms came next and then half a dozen green tomatoes. Even growing up on a farm I still marvel at how God designed nature to work. From tiny seeds, new life grows and blossoms. It’s like a miracle. I stuck two little tomato plants in the dirt, watered them and they produced food for me. Whether planted in a large vegetable garden or from a pot on my patio, the result is the same. God is the source of all life, constantly creating and sustaining his creation. And, aren’t we happy about that!
