January 27. The Ndlovus had spent their holiday on the family farm and loved the less pressured atmosphere.  Petunia Ndlovu smiled when she shared, “I couldn’t help but think of the Jesus and the parable of the sower. Our farmers are becoming very meticulous these days but one still sees mealies and even fruit trees growing here and there along the road.

“A sower went out to sow and some seed fell along the path, some on rocky ground, some among thorns and some in good soil.  The seed in good soil brought forth grain, thirty, sixty and hundredfold.   Jesus compared how the word is sown in more or less fertile situations, and how it is received and yields fruit. Those that were sown upon the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold, sixtyfold or hundredfold. Mark 4:1-20. 

Pope Francis:  Creation is of the order of love. God’s love is the fundamental moving force in all created things. Even the fleeting life of the least being is the object of his love and in its few seconds of its existence God enfolds it with his affection. LS77.  Reflect and share.
