In This Garden of My Heart…πŸ’–

January 22, 2023

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, faithfulness, kindness, goodness…

In this garden of my heart

You are here, shovel on hand.

Together, we have much work to do.

Digging deep, pulling out weeds of past

Memories, composting the hurt–pain

Becoming fertilizer for the seeds of

Spirit to grow up out of

These ashes which is

All that remains of what used to be–You

Died for me…so I could live

Here in this garden with You and

For all eternity

Tend to your trees.

“Grief accomplishes a healing work”*

And seeds hold the hope and expectation of fruit.

My joy is in the ripening.

      1. Steve, I am working on balancing my time…more like juggling. Haha! I miss the WP community, but things are beginning to settle a bit now so hopefully you will see me more! Great to see you too. Spring is just right around the corner…πŸ₯ΆπŸŒ·
