Follow the Nudge

So Saturday morning I’m staring aimlessly (I find aimless staring to be therapeutic) at my backyard. Suddenly I focus on one of the two papaya trees. It has the most beautiful, plentiful fruit. It is leaning, looking like this tree on the left.

I get this nudge, this feeling (okay, maybe it was glaringly obvious) – “mental note: prop it up, TODAY.

“Yes,” I reply to myself. “I’ll do it now.”

RESTOFTHESTORY: IFORGOTTODOIT


Now I have this in my kitchen –
more than 130 green or semi-ripe papayas!

Friends, one of the several lessons to glean from my self-inflicted dilemma:

When something is producing a lot of fruit, it needs a lot of support.
If you want the fruit, give the support.

And when you feel a nudge, an obvious prompt,

JUST DO IT. DO IT NOW.
Timing is everything.
What prompting have you been ignoring lately?

  1. Hey Heather, thanks for the encouragement! Lessons come in the strangest packages…Ann Marie, you’re right! I guess the key is trusting God to give us wisdom on the what and when.
