"To plow is to pray--to plant is to prophesy and the harvest answers and fulfills."--R.G. Ingersoll
I have never thought of plowing, planting, and harvesting in this way until I came upon these beautiful words. I will probably never plow a field; the only thing I plant is the occasional flower. But I can harvest the bounty of other works.
I can rejoice in a card from a friend, knowing that I have sowed the seeds of friendship. I can find joy in the "I love you, Grandma" over the phone from a grandchild, knowing I have worked to stay close to him even though thousands of miles separate us.
This I know for sure: the law of the harvest is everywhere, in everything.
