Have you been blasted by Jack Frost?

Tending the garden of the heart - Day 119

Jack frost visited last week and our beautiful flowers that looked like this...

Now looks like this...

And our peppers that we were hoping to get that extra warmth to ripen some more that looked like this...

Now looks like this...

The same thing happened with our basil and the squash. We harvested what we could and dug up the plants to use them for compost.

As long as the warm weather remained, they retained their lively appearance. Once Jack Frost hit them, they became lifeless.

Interestingly enough, our Swiss chard, green onions, thyme and carrots stood strong regardless of Jack Frost`s visit. Some of the cut stems of the Swiss chard are even growing leaves again.

How do we fair when the harsh weather of life knocks on our door? When adversity comes, what is our response? Are we happy and cheerful when times are good and the warmth of the sun s beating down on us but when adverse conditions set in do we shrivel and become unresponsive to others?

Adversities show us what we`re really made of. Anybody can be happy when things are going well, but when we`re faced with challenges that`s when we need to dig deep within the roots of our soul and connect with our Source - the warmth of our inner being. As we turn our attention away from our disturbing external conditions, we can bask in the warmth of Unconditional Love, return to a place of peace and joy and receive wisdom to resolve our personal issues.

Have you been blasted by Jack Frost? Look within to the place where there`s always summer, a place of peace and find comfort in the midst of the frost knowing that summer will return once again to your external conditions.
