Good Morning My Beautiful Link Sisters
My apologies for not sending a Monday Morning of last couple of weeks. I was attending our Executive Retreat and when I returned to Birmingham, I was working with The World Games. It was a lot going on and what an amazing experience both were.
This morning’s message is titled, “Is Your Soil Fertile?” As I have been working in my yard. planting flowers and other plants, my first major focus was ensuring that I was planting in rich, fertile soil. In the areas that were not, I added nutrients and fertilizer to ensure my plants would be healthy and the roots would run deep. Healthy plants are sure to yield beautiful flowers or awesome vegetables. So, my question for all of us is, “Is our soil fertile enough to yield healthy results?”
In order for us to accomplish all that we have planned or continue to plan, our individual soil must be fertile and nourishing in order for our chapter to be healthy. When the chapter’s soil as a whole is fertile, there is no question that we will always have a great, productive, and sustainable chapter. We will continue to assist parents with the healthy growth of their children, which means we are assisting schools, our city, and our county with healthy and productive citizens. If we are very confident about the richness and fertility of our soil and what we are producing, we should all work to make sure there is never any erosion. We have to work succinctly to maximize the quality of what we are producing.
As long as we continue to work together and respect each other’s role and contribution, The Birmingham Chapter of the Links will continue to yield healthy, resilient, and positively beautiful results. As long as we remember that we are all in this together. As long as we remember “To be good soil, we must also have the imagination and creativity to dream, to be able to see beyond what is already happening toward what might be possible. As long as we remember that our being here was clearly meant to be and that we are working with the same goal in mind, we will always be role models for our youth and even role models for other chapters and organizations.
Link Sisters let’s continue to sow, grow, and be good soil for others.
Today’s Scriptures: Matthew 13:1-9 The Parable of the Sower 13 That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
