Strolling down the winding path and through the open gate into a garden of splendor. Flowers blooming profusely. Drifts of bright colors and different shades of green adorn the garden. Overcome by the unwritten invitation to stay awhile and enjoy the beauty, rest and joy of the garden, I take a seat by the pond.

Man made nature so beautiful, peaceful and inviting. It didnít just happen. The seeds and plants are carefully planted. Water and nutrients are added to nourish the soil and plants. Weeds are removed so that the plants can grow unhindered. This garden is a work of love and dedication.

Our lives are a garden. A garden nourished with Godís word. The Holy Spirit convicts us when we get deterred, weeds us and brings us back into a blooming profusion. We are Godís garden filled with love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, meekness, and temperance. Galations 5:22-23 (KJV) Blooms fit for the masterís use.

Through the witness of our inner beauty, we bloom, draw & invite others to Christ. We reach out to the lost. This beautifully growing spiritual garden. This garden is a work of love and dedication.
