I think it comes as no surprise which Psalm I claimed for my own, I've quoted it often and it's been such a great comfort to me.
As a gardener it's become very clear how nature often works contrary to our plans. You water, you feed and the plant can still wilt and never take root. Bugs and creatures can move in or nature just does it's worth.
I love this psalm because it reminds me that God's plans aren't as whimsical as my actual garden. Things, the right things - the things he intends for us, will always take root and blossom. He promises that our tears will never be in vain.
