The vine…

So in our back yard, out of nowhere, a vine began to grow. At first, it was quite pretty, so we didn’t give it much concern. But it slowly began to take over our shrubbery, walls, and ground. That which was so beautiful consumed the entire space to create the antithesis.

This is actually a metaphor for life. Do you have something in your life that started out well, but over time it takes over? It moves from being a lovely addition to your pristine garden to a difficult, overgrown, time-consuming mess.

In our case, we have waited for the yard service that our HOA provides to trim back the excess foliage, but that doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon. Perhaps it is time for us to bring out some trimmers?

If you have something in your life that has taken over in a nonpositive way, trim it back before it smothers all that is good.


Stay groovy…
