The Beauty Of A Garden


This beautiful Spring weather has us all planning and dreaming of Summer gardens. But, this morning, my mind goes back to another Garden. The Garden of Gethsemane. Where, my Saviour agonized and prayed to His Father that "if possible, this cup would pass from Him. And not His will but the Fathers would be done." (Matthew 26: 38-40)
Even those closest to Him, could not tarry one hour, but fell asleep. His betrayal complete. He, was led from that Garden to be mocked, beaten and Crucified. All of which he did willingly for ME. Oh, the beauty of that Garden...
As I watch our gardens come to life, my hands dirty from planting. I will, glory in the miracle of New Life that only He offers...I am washed clean, my hands no longer dirty! My Saviour makes all things new! Do you know Him?
May your Easter be blessed...Jesus is Alive.

Love to All
