A Lesson in Adversity

This is our garden. This is a square in our garden that didn't end up growing - it was supposed to be peas. But see that thing in the corner? That there is a pineapple plant. Nope, we didn't plant it. But we did throw a few pineapple cores into the compost and apparently two of them decided to live instead of die, to grow instead of compost. I'm impressed. I've never seen a pineapple plant grow (although I've tried to grow a few and they all die or attract ants). Just a good lesson that the Master Creator designed everything for growth, for life, and His children, for joy. Another great illustration of blooming where you're planted.

Yeah for growing things! I do hear that it takes 2 years before you can harvest a pineapple, but what an awesome fruit to have growing. And you've probably got the climate to do it.
