Mustard Season

Mustard seeds sown by vintners or growing wild in the vineyards return to bloom here every winter. They help suppress fungal pathogens and nematodes that attack roots, and then are plowed under in the spring, providing nutrients to the vines.

The thought that the seed Jesus chose to represent faith protects and nourishes the symbol of joy, healing, blessing, and his own blood, is deeply powerful and beautiful to me.

It may seem hokey, but it reminds me that no matter what “pathogen” attacks, God is always with you. He’s provided all you need to thrive through every season.
