“The Lord will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought, And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.” Isaiah 58:11
Gardening is for souls that are home-bound to the
soil of the land.
Being good stewards of God’s earth and all its resources.
Gardening is for hands that toil and toil the earth,
while the mind and heart gives life to seeds, buds and bulbs,
hopes and dreams.
Gardening will provide for the gardener and those employed by a gardener.
A garden will enlarge and supply benefits from a heavenly hand.
Adam was the first to model this life.
Gardening is not for waste, haste or disturbance.
Slow, meticulous, peace and calm while waiting for
the seasons to show and give their timely demands.
A garden does not brag about its giving-
A gardener’s work is not to show and tell;
but model a way to the quieting of the soul,
while supplying substances for the health
of a man.
A gardener stays with the soil and waits patiently,
while becoming one with the moment of the bloom.
It takes weeding out the weeds that stunt the growth
of the fruit to be plucked.
A garden and a gardener needs great courage, for:
Out of the garden’s life comes the gardener’s life.
