Thank You, Mr. Gardener

This story has always been especially powerful for me. It's likely so poignant just because it hits home. I always tend to feel so entitled to having things my way that when something disrupts me, I'm almost offended. It's like I can't believe life has the nerve to not go the way I want it to. So, as I'm sure you can imagine, this concept of God being in control and me learning through trials is something I learn fairly often. It's good though. Life would be much less interesting if we ever arrived instead of experiencing a constant progression. And now for one of my favorite quotes:

"If you seek praise more than instruction, you may receive neither." -Henry B. Eyring

  1. Thank you... I really needed this reminder... "thank you Mr. Gardener for cutting me down, for loving me enough to hurt me."
