I’ll Take That

Roots in a glass.
Yep. That’s one of the things for which I am giving thanks today.

I harvested the last of my basil last week or possibly the week before, brought it into the kitchen, and deposited the few stems in a glass jar.  Many years ago in a Friend’s kitchen, I admired her basil growing beautifully green and healthy in a glass.
Later I tried it too — but failed.

But this time I have ROOTS!

Roots in a glass.  More than roots, I have leaves! Albeit, I do not have as many leaves, or are they as beautiful as Carolyn’s but perhaps with time, sunshine, and water more will grow. 

For now, I have these and I am grateful. 

They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
    bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
    and they prosper in all they do.  Psalm 1 (source)

I’ll take that!

Psalm 1 is speaking of something more than my roots in a glass so may I encourage you to read it in context.
