While weeding the wood staging area in our side yard, I found a volunteer tomato plant. If you look carefully at the center of the photo, you’ll see it. It has a few yellow flowers growing at the top. Rather than dig it up and transplant it in the intentional garden a few feet away, I decided to leave it where it was flourishing. In fact, to help it along, I drove a wooden stake into the ground behind it and tied it up.

I think there’s a lesson there:

Only God knows where we’ll end up. Bloom where you’re planted.
