The Seeds of Spiritual Renewal!
These are among the most historical holy days in the Judeo and Christian communities. For Jews, it is the eight day observance of Passover commemorating the exodus of the Israelites from
Lead by homilies of their respective clergies and by referenced biblical passages; their congregation’s faith in being spiritually delivered by a higher, omnipotent being is renewed.
Included in these commemorations are symbols such as the palm branch, a wooden cross, the matzh, a green vegetable, and a hard boiled egg.
Unfortunately, too often, in the days and weeks that follow these marvelous events, our faith in the Almighty begins to erode. If so, we recommend a supplemental conveyance to spiritual renewal that’s available via mail order or in your local hardware or lawn and garden store.
Such guidance is provided by…Burpee!
As proof, get yourself a few envelopes of Burpee vegetable, herb, and/or flower seeds. Follow each and every one of the Burpee commandments imprimatur on the back of their seed packets. Open the envelopes with care because, for the most part, the seeds are so small, they can barely be seen.
Yet, if you follow the Burpee disciplines, the seeds, within weeks, will germinate, sprout, and when transplanted outdoors, become bountiful plants or bushes, laden with their harvests of herbs, vegetables, and floral.
This week we will renew our faith in the teachings inherent in the miraculous events of biblical ancient history. Then, throughout the coming spring and summer months, when you nurture and harvest the bounty from your Burpee seeds, you’ll have more than your faith renewed…
With humility, you’ll know there is an Almighty!
