“Some plants grow best in shade.”

Do you remember when my daughter was talking about how certain people seem to have sunshine in their lives every day? These people enjoy happy, carefree hearts. Others seem to have dark days. They live with cloudy, heavy hearts. My daughter said that sometimes she feels this way. And then she reminded me of John 15 and Jesus as our gardener who plants us where we are supposed to be and who knows what we need.

She says, “I remembered that some plants grow best in shade. If I have dark days, this is how I’ll grow best.”

Some plants grow best in shade.

I remember this when I water my plants this morning. The plants that need the shade are growing so beautifully.
