Pruning. . .
not only speaks of
but also of the
that takes place
when it is done properly.
In horticultural, pruning encourages growth. But knowing where to cut to maximize growth requires expertise. The image of pruning has become increasingly important to me. One place I’ve tried to prune is my natural impulse to solve someone else’s problems rather than support that person’s own decisions.

When nature is blooming, as when things are going right in our lives we may not think of pruning, but it is a constant thing.
