A Word from Pastor John

I love gardens! My mother and grandmothers had wonderful gardens – both flowers and veggies.   I am reminded that Adam and Eve were placed in the Garden of Eden and instructed to tend/keep it. One can only imagine what wonderful vegetables and fruits they were in charge of – and the flowers must have been stupendous!  

One of my calligraphy friends on Facebook (Kathy Milici – whom Evangelina and I had the privilege of meeting earlier this year) posted a delightful note that I would like to share with you about some of the needed plants in our gardens.   Enjoy!  

Planting Your Spring Garden
For the Garden of Your Daily Living

Plant Three Rows of Peas
Peas of Mind
Peas of Heart
Peas 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 Patient
Lettuce Really Love One Another

No Garden is Complete Without Turnips
Turnip For Meetings
Turnip For Service
Turnip To Help One Another

To Conclude Our Garden We Must Have Thyme
Thyme For Each Other
Thyme For Family
Thyme For Friends

Water freely with patience and cultivate with love. There is much fruit in your garden because you reap what you sow. Pass it on!

Blessings to all as you tend your gardens!
