Alta Sierra Biblical Gardens

Loving the subject of Biblical Gardens as I do, I sometimes surf the web for info on this subject.  I enjoy looking at photos that people take of gardens in general.  I came across this video on youtube that I thought was nicely done and hoped you would enjoy visiting the coolness of the garden and the fragrance of faith in Jesus.  Just click on the title of my post above and it will take you to visit the gardens.

All this snow is so good for the earth.  It blankets the plants and gives them moisture over a long period of time.  Hopefully all of this wonderful, beautiful snow will assure us of a drought free summer.  All this snow also makes me think of the song that goes..."whiter than snow, yes whiter than snow.  Now wash me and I will be whiter than snow."

Another Kind of Seed

Another kind of seed...

            On a visit to the Montgomery County Bookmobile this week I came across a very interesting book.  It is entitled The Prayer Shawl Companion by Janet Bristow & Victoria A. Cole-Galo, and published by The Taunton Press.
            It is actually a book of knitting patterns for prayer shawls and since I have been studying the Jewish prayer shawl called a Tallit, this title caught my eye.  I must say I do not agree with all of the thoughts and ideas represented in the book.  But they have some beautiful designs and I love the idea of praying over a project you are working on in order to give someone else a blessing.
            On page 87 there is a lovely little prayer written by Wren Ross of Boston, Massachusetts:
“May each stitch be a seed of beauty.
  May each stitch be a seed of truth.
  May each stitch be a seed of health.
  May each stitch be a seed of compassion.
  May each stitch be a seed of joy.
  May each stitch be a seed of grace.
  May each stitch be a seed of love.”

By God’s grace, I hope to sow those kinds of seeds in 2010, how about you?

Start your own seeds for a luscious garden.

This is the kind of garden we gardeners dream of.  This is the garden of Mr & Mrs Hartman in North Coventry, Pottstown.  Mary Belle has laid her garden out with lovely brick paths in between the rows.  She has a huge variety of plants in luscious colors.
