Day 10 April NaBloPoMo(National Blog Posting Month)


Wow Day 10! Only 20 more days left in this great challenge...

Today's sprouting topic is gardening, but not just any old garden. I'm talking about God's garden and what you can sow and sprout.


Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
Galatians 6:7 NIV

You reap what you sow. You sprout what you plant.

There is a poem that perfectly describes what you should plant in your gargen. Let your harvest sprout for God.



GARDENING GOD'S WAY

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 obedient
 Lettuce really love one another
 No garden without turnips:
 Turnip for meetings
 Turnip for service
 Turnip to help one another

 Water freely with patience and cultivate love.
 There is much fruit for your garden
 because you reap what you sow.

 To conclude our garden
 We must have thyme:
 Thyme for God
 Thyme for study
 Thyme for prayer
 Thyme for each other
 Thyme for friends

I love it! Very clever twist on words and so appropriate for this time of year: physical spring as well as our spiritual renewal through this Easter season.
