Garden of life

My enjoyment of gardening comes from a passion for life. I look at gardening as I look at life. I start with all of the good that God gives me and, just like my garden, I use good soil, nourish my life with family, friendships, kindness and joy, and work diligently keeping the weeds of negative thinking out. I then plant the seeds of kindness and happiness that continue to grow and give life.

If I become careless and the seed does not fall on good ground, it will die. Since I want my garden and my life to flourish and grow, I tend to my garden faithfully. I enjoy spending my time in the garden. I know that what I grow well will feed many people and will be life giving.

My goal is to produce a garden and a life that I am proud of and will help others on their own journey through the garden of life. My thought for this day is all good things grow in God's garden.
