One of the endeavours of CareSA is the Care Africa project, which includes the concept of Care Gardens, with the catch phrase “Plant a garden in your yard, Plant a garden in your heart.”
Today I thought to recapture the vision but with an emphasis on the garden of Your Heart.
Just to encourage you to tend to your garden with these few simple, yet profound truths on how to grow the splendour of your soul. The clever play on words are not all my own, I found them lying anonymously in my box of collectables begging to be shared for a chuckle or two.
Cultivate the Fruit of the Spirit:
Love, Joy, Peace,
Faithfulness, Goodness, Kindness,
Gentleness, Longsuffering and Self Control.
Share generously with all you meet this year.
Plant a good few rows of Peas:
Ppatience, Ppoliteness, Ppreparedness, Ppromptness, Ppersistence, Ppunctuality, and Peperseverance.
Plant four rows of Squash:
Plant four rows of Lettuce:
Let us be faithful,
Let us be kind,
Let us be obedient
Let us really love one another
No garden without Turnips:
* Turn up for meetings
* Turn up for service
* Turn up to help one another.
We must have Thyme in our gardens:
Time for Work
Time for Play
Time for Laughter
Time for God
Time to Pray.
Weed out all toxic thoughts immediately !
Regularly sprinkle on the Fertilizer of Forgiveness.
Water well, and often, with the Word of God.
Do these simple soul deeds, and watch the Garden of Your Heart grow !!
With a little Faith Hope and Love, you can
Pick the fruit of your labour.
