Do we want to return to the soil?;
Do we want to return our lives now...
Or in a little while?
We found glory in the garden, we still might discover splendour there today;
Refresh and renew the garden of our hearts....just as in days before;
Let's revive our gardens of joy; Let's sew and reap with love; let the spring of happiness flow with hopefulness from above;
Let's not find the original Eden;
uncover a newer garden instead;
reveal the garden of Heaven, O Lord...
and allow us to taste its fruits forevermore;
Thank you Lord for the spring & summer;
Thank you for everything we see;
Thank you for the harvest and the right to play in life's gardens as they were meant to be;
Thank the Saviour and savour the fruits of His success;
Find bounty in the autumn and in sweet and peaceful rest;
Do you like the gardens of plenty or of plentitude?
Always strive to be peaceful and never wish to be rude....
Return to the Garden?
Do we need to now or wisely dare to be different and sow our seeds with care;
Whatever your choice, dear reader, become all you're meant to be and strive to be a little better in all of your honesty....
(May God bless you today as you struggle with the question of whether to revive the memories or to create the realities of a longed-for Garden of Eden in the modern world. May your choice be made in prayer and meditation as you praise God's holy name.)
