DIVISION

Well, well........division.....it can be a beautiful word in the right context.....

but

it can be a devastating word when it gets in where it does not belong.....

Now that it is gardening season, I am thinking about all of the plants, mainly perennials that need dividing..   When I do this, it is almost like getting plants for free..and one plant can spread into many plants through dividing...one daylily scape can multiply into a whole clump and then division is the natural and necessary step to take..then you have many scapes to plant and then they become clumps and the cycle goes on and on..you get the picture....
This is a good and healthy way to let the word 'division' into your life..when it actually causes multiplication from division.......

Then there is another way that it is a not so good thing to let into your life....as in divorce....when that division happens, it divides what is supposed to stay together always.....it does NOT cause a multiplication of anything good...it causes death....on many levels.....I never thought that I would get to experience divorce and much less that I would gain a little authority to talk about such unmentionable things like divorce...but, lo and behold....I did not choose my life, I am living it (heard that line in a movie last night and liked it)....and my life included divorce...it also includes a second, successful, forever marriage...so beauty can come out of ashes......

I have just been thinking about this word....DIVISION.....

Let's leave it in the garden and get it out of our homes!!!!!!!!

and as a nod to my brilliant children and grandsons....yes, division is good in the math department..  grin, wink....
they are all math prodigies......but I will stick to division in the garden....

What God has joined together, let no man tear apart.....that's a good word....the key is God joining it together...

SO...daylilies and other perennials.....DIVIDE away....

Marriage and healthy relationships.....DIVIDING is detrimental to your health......

                         Love to you all...thank you for reading along with me.......I hope to see you again real soon..

  2. I was just telling Joe that the day lilies we divided in the fall have popped up. As for divorce and a beautiful marriage now I have/had much the same experience.
