Today, I put Planty in the sun…something I’ve been neglectful of lately partially because since he got his new (bigger) pot, he no longer fits on the window sill. So I took him off his little side-table that’s usually his home, and parked him on a chest in the path of the sun.
He was pretty happy.
Here are a few photos of our fun morning together.
Lately, I have noticed how green Planty has become. Maybe, it’s because instead of simply letting him be a piece of furniture, I’ve treated him with real care. Maybe ‘cuz I started actually watering him on a seminormal basis, and have been taking the time to place him in the sun, and bought him a new pot when it looked like he was outgrowing his old one.
What would happen if we treated our possessions with this care? What things in your life need watering, need sunlight, or need a new pot? What have you been neglecting…responsibilities, possessions, people, your walk with God? This is an appeal to think about any areas where things are “just okay” (the way Planty used to be), and how you could bring those things back to life. Stop for a minute, take the time, and see what happens.
