A Fresh New Garden

April 28, 2011 by Martha Gottlieb

Spring has sprung! ┬áConsider planting a special kind of garden…

Plant three rows of peas:
Peace of mind
Peace of heart
Peace of soul

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 service
Turnip to help one another

We must have thyme:
Thyme for God
Thyme for study
Thyme for prayer

Water with patience and fertilize with love. There is much fruit in your garden because you reap what you sow.

  1. Great analagies….however since it is now fall how about changing the title to something more generic. I’m going to share you “garden” with my bible class tomorrow.
