The little paper pocket, dabbed in pastel paint, hangs by the back door, amidst a collection of keys that may or may not run something on our farm these days. The message, "Sow seeds of kindness," is a key in itself, isn't it? If I catch a quick glimpse of it as I dash out the door on the way to accompany at school or to help Randy, maybe it will provide that subliminal nudge to actually practice what it preaches.
"Sow seeds of kindness." It's just another way to consider the Golden Rule, I suppose. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
One of the little cardboard-backed fabric plaques has this prayer:
Lord, make me a blessing today.
Let me be a sunflower in a garden full of thorns.
A day hemmed in prayer seldom unravels.
