Hope keeps the heart in good order. Our longings are connected to hope. And in our longings, we put effort to see them realized. We plant seeds, so trees will rise. A tree is just an illustration of what hope does. The people we hold dear and near receive the seeds of our affection and love. We plant hope into those relationships, desiring to see what becomes of what we have planted. We hope to see our children growing and thriving, so we plant loving instruction and tenderness. We want strong connections with others, so we plant our commitment and care. We give seeds to everyone and everything we love. We plant by our desires and we are looking for a harvest.
