Harvest Basket Oct 31 08

The squash in the garden are amazing and abundant.

Each day I find squash in unexpected shapes and sizes and colors.  It’s so exciting to discover the new developments every day.  And these miracles of sustenance that came from little seeds will take us through our way too long Winter with colorful, bountiful, hearty meals.  Again, we’ll save the seeds from the best of them to plant next Spring when the soil heats up.  Next year’s garden plan is already in my head from what I learned this year.

Next year the squash will have the place of honor closer to the rest of the backyard where there will be plenty of room for them to meander and spread out happily in the sun.  They are a glorious plant variety to watch as they spread their tendrils out to secure their position for the heavy fruit they’ll produce.  They really dig in and take a stand where they choose.  Then the fruit sets and within two weeks, a full grown fruit takes the place of a delicate blossom.  They’re gorgeous.  I like to think of those of us in 12 Step programs as squash – blossoms, delicate and fragile when we first arrive and quickly bearing hearty fruits as we commit and plant ourselves in meetings, with sponsors, receiving the nourishment of the 12 Steps which produce the harvest of miracles that start happening so quickly in our lives.  As we do what’s in front of us to do with an attitude of gratitude, it’s a bountiful harvest that cycles through our lives as do the season with our gardens.

Affirmation for the Day – ” I see miracles today.”

Remember to say the affirmation at least 3 times whenever you remember it, preferably in front of a mirror.

Course In Miracles Lesson –  This holy instant is salvation come.

Practice – We have forgiven one another now, and so we come at last to You again.  Father, Your Son, who never left, returns to Heaven and his home.  How glad are we to have our sanity restored to us, and to remember that we all are one.
