Pruning

It was such a lovely day for pruning fruit trees today!


 This apple tree grew several weird loopy branches!

As painful as it was to cut off so many branches from each tree, it will make the tree much stronger and healthier in the long run.  Just like in our spiritual life...pruning out the unproductive branches of our lives in order to grow and produce good fruit.

  1. So glad you were able to be out in the beautiful weather and sunshine. Good job for being so attentive to your orchard! Indeed, pruning fruit bearing trees and vines is such a good spiritual life analogy/lesson. Painful at the time, but necessary in creating an abundant harvest of fruit!

    Another glorious day today to enjoy, huh? Thank you, Lord!
    Love you,
    Mommy
