    Growing in God

    By Jessica Brodie

    "… So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love …"—Ephesians 3:17

Forgotten in someone's abandoned office, the poor thing was alone, starving, and on its way out. My heart tugged. I'm no green-thumb, but surely I could help.

    I took that plant and transferred it to a bigger pot, added water and several scoops of rich, black soil, patted it all down, and blew her a kiss. Then I set her in a soft patch of sunlight on my kitchen counter, where I gave her a name, Tanya—yes, this is weird, but I do name my plants. Only the ones I name tend to live.

    Almost two years later, Tanya the plant is thriving, happy, robust, and reaching for the sky.
