A Fresh New Garden

Spring has sprung! This year why not consider planting a special kind of garden.

Plant four rows of peas; 
Peace of mind
Peace of heart
Peace of soul
Peace with someone you hurt or who hurt you
Plant four rows of squash;
Squash gossip
Squash indifference
Squash grumbling
Squash selfishness
Plant four rows of lettuce;
Lettuce be faithful
Lettuce be kind
Lettuce be obedient
Lettuce really love one another
No garden is complete without turnips;
Turnip for meetings
Turnip for prayer
Turnip for helping one another
Turnip in your place of worship even if you don't want to
To complete God's garden, we must add thyme;
Thyme for worship,whatever your religion
Thyme for study
Thyme for praising and thanking those around us,
Thyme for one another
Water with patience and fertilize freely with love.
Caution: The amount of harvest depends on the amount of seed sown.
Sow sparingly, reap sparingly.
How does your garden grow???
