I want to grow a tomato—lots of them, but year after year I failed to get a vine to produce. “Think like a tomato.” I told myself. I did and determined the best place to be was not in my garden, at all but in the narrow strip of my neighbor’s south facing front yard adjacent to my sidewalk and garage wall. “Patty, let’s partner and plant tomatoes!” I suggested. Everyone was amazed as we began to harvest bushel after bushel of red, juicy globes. Patty had been my neighbor for twenty years yet no one saw the ripe field that lay between our two houses.


“Do you not say, “Four months more, then comes the harvest”? But I tell you, look around you, and see how the fields are ripe for harvesting.” John 4:35
