I have been working in our gardens and fighting Virginia creeper . Looking about in our woods, I can see it has reached the tops of many trees. I know this winter, when the vegetation is gone, we need to be out cutting and spraying. Over the years, I have come to actually despise this invasive plant. No matter how many of the little plants I pull, vines I tear out, unless it is killed from the main trunk, it will continue to send out creepers, above and underground, taking over any territory. Eventually choking the life out of the plants it wraps itself around.
In the same way I have also been working on my heart. my mind.
With all that I am, I will spend my time with my "Master Gardner" helping me to be rid of the "Virginia creepers", so the garden of my heart will be "wholeheartedly devoted to God".
It is the best "weed" defense you can get.
