One Thousand Gifts (Continued)

"The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple."
 (Psalm 119:130)
We dig.
We plant.
We turn the soil.
We tend the garden.
But, what about our spiritual growth?
I don't dig enough.
I need to turn the soil.
I need to cultivate.
I need to dig more into God's Word.
His Word gives "light and understanding".

Continuing to give thanks...
