It is so easy to let our guard down from time to time. Trouble with that is when we are not paying close attention, the wrong people can work their way into our lives. Stop and take inventory from time to time. You may notice individuals that need to be pruned out of your life. It sounds harsh, but early pruning will prevent late clearing of timber. Think about that. Keep watch, take inventory, prune early and tend to your garden with great care. After all, the beauty of your life depends on it.
