Hope

I was just reading a lovely post by Shannon at Nourishing Days.  As she talked about spring planting I was inspired and blessed by this particular comment:

“But I have no expectations. It is hard to explain, in this results-driven culture, that we can not plant seeds with expectations of success or crop yields or large harvests. . .  Hopes, yes. Expectations, no. The working and planting and watering and nurturing are nourishment in and of themselves.”

Amen, Shannon.
