This book Rescued Tomato Seeds is available as an e-book on Amazon.com (click here).
When I started my journey planting tomato seeds, I never expected to face so many twists and turns. I had hope that things would go smoothly, and many times I even felt like giving up. Fortunately, I did not give up. When I started out, I never would have imagined the valuable lessons I learned along the way.
On reflection of the hurdles, triumphs and successes I experienced during the tomato journey, it occurred to me , isn’t life like that? There are always challenges to overcome. The tomatoes have become a metaphor for me as I navigate the challenges I encounter in life.
I was reminded of the story in the Bible where God told Jeremiah, “Arise, and go down to the potter’s house …” (Jeremiah 18:2). After Jeremiah observed the potter at work, God helped him to understand more about God’s working in the lives of His people; the 19-week journey with the tomato plants did something similar for me.
Now I invite you to join me on this journey. Maybe I will never look at a tomato seed the same again after my experience. And after you read Rescued Tomato Seeds maybe you won’t either.
I pray that as you read you will gain insights to help you along your life journey and that you will find encouragement to continue to press on, no matter what comes your way.
