“Plants don’t do well in our house,” I told a friend of ours.
As if some kind of arcane energy in our home does plants in.
How totally irresponsible of me.
The reason why plants don’t do well in my home is because I don’t take care of them.
I do not make myself responsible, and so they die.
“Ah, well,” I say as I toss out another dead plant, “Too bad, but plants just don’t do well in our house.”
What area in my life is not doing well right now?
Am I accepting responsibility for it, or am I just a victim of circumstances when I gain weight, have arguments all the time, or have creditors’ banging on my door?
What is not going well in my life and what do I need to do to take care of it?
What is my responsibility here?
How can God help?
