I found 6 of these nasty life suckers and plant demolishers on my tomato plants yesterday!! Me and my hubs had noticed that the leaves were getting holes in them and that some of the branches were stubbed off.

We sat outside in the evening heat and sweating almost to death looking for these little guys...did I say little?? I should say big guys!! I googled them to know what I was looking for, and the info I got was very informative but saddening.

These hornworms can grow to be 6 inches long and kill a tomato plant within a couple of days. (You know I am about to get all spiritual on ya, so here we go). Sin can be the same way. If we allow sin to fester in our hearts we can come bitter and utterly a devestated being. We no longer have joy in our hearts and can no longer express happy feelings. We have to pluck the life suckers out of our lives to repair the damage it has done.

After about an hour of sweating on looking for these worms we were ready to go in. But with the deep search and dedication we had to save our plants, we found 6. I am feeling pretty blessed to know that my plants should improve, and that when I get rid of the sin that makes me sick, Jesus can improve my being.

It does take time, deep heart searching and yes, some sweating to get to the heart of sin, but in the end the restoration that takes place is worth it!! I cannot wait till my tomaters are ready to pick!!

The fruit of our labors!!

  1. When we were kids, we would go out and look for those tomato worms. We would then, either feed them to the chickens or jump on them to squish 'em. Don't know why we enjoyed it as much as we did. :)
