We have created little outdoor settings so we could have guest here and there. If you sit here (see photo below) for a drink of bottled water and one sits on the porch in same type mask and gloves they can chat.
There are various settings to enjoy a garden. We tried to make settings 12-20 ft apart for now. Mask and gloves worn. It’s working and the gardens make it worth while to have little gatherings.
Things are going to get better and as we wait we can choose to add a little beauty to God’s earth each day and enjoy nature and friends
While pausing to give thought to God and gardens I was stunned remembering the various uses God designed gardens for?
Can you guess who my guest is? Or, do we need to unmask the mystery for you? 🌸🌺😍🌝
The LORD God created the first garden, Eden which we all most likely know a story or stories related to. After Eden, the Bible mentions numerous gardens and their attributes. In the Song of Solomon 6:11 and Luke 13:19, a garden is referred to as a place of shelter and shade, and also as a place of protection ( Song of Solomon 4:12 ).
Spring 2020 garden thoughts began to create ideas unlike in past Springs. Yet, not understanding the why really but having a knowing God knew so little steps were taken to oblige the urging of the Holy Spirit. Little did we know Covid-19 would cause God to need a gathering place for sharing. We have an “honor ones lost to Covid-19” sitting garden spot. Reading garden spot. Prayer garden and Chat gardens among a few viewing only garden spots.
Do you have a favorite Bible garden story? Home garden? Park Garden? Memorial Garden. A Garden may be calling you as it called a writer to pen these words, “I come to the garden alone while the dew is still on the roses…And he talks with me
And he tells me I am his own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known”
