Planting for a Lent Garden

A post from Reverend Faulkner

For the garden of daily living…

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 patient
        Lettuce really love one another

No garden is complete without Turnips
        Turnip for meetings
        Turnip for worship
        Turnip to help one another

Our garden must have Thyme
        Thyme for each other
        Thyme for family
        Thyme for friends

Water freely with Patience and cultivate with Love.
There will be much fruit in your garden, because you reap what you sow.
