I hadn't heard of "Collect" prayer. A useful way to collect thoughts for a prayer. And indeed successful in "Garden Collect." A beautiful prayer. I felt compelled to read to the end.

Oh, I love this! I've never been able to master free verse, but this is wonderful! I'd love to see this incorporated into a worship service. Bravo!

I lived reading that, the way that you have used the flowers to illustrate aspects of our life. I like the lavender being crushed and the scent of sorrow.

Thank God that He cares for us as he does the beautiful flowers of the garden. A beautiful poem!

Kathryn, this was truly beautiful. I was very impressed and you definitely deserved your 2nd place in the Level 2 awards, as well as your 8th place in the Editors' Choice. I was very impressed. Congratulations! Feel free to move up to Level 3 - I think you are more than ready.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
