It is amazing what even a little time spent weeding, even a tiny garden can do for us.


Pulling the weeds

From my little garden

This morning,

I realized…

 

It is time

To pull the weeds

From my soul

From my life…

 

And maybe it is time

To plow my little garden

And start anew

Fresh and glorious…

 

It is time in my life

To free my mind

To plow

The thoughts of old…

 

Time to begin

A new path

To allow God

To show me the way

His way for me…

 

Oh the joy

Of a beautiful new garden

A clean heart

The soul, a ready vase

For God to fill

With His gifts, His blossoms.

A SPIRITUALLY AWARE PERSON IS NEVER WITHOUT INSPIRATION AND INSIGHT...GOD CONSTANTLY GIVES 'REVEALS' WHAT IS NEEDED IN THEIR LIVES AS THEY GO ABOUT DOING, WHAT SEEMS, THE SIMPLEST LITTLE TASKS. AN AWESOME WORK TO THE GLORY OF GOD...MARVELOUS! THIS IS A KEEPER...THANKS FOR SHARING AND BLESSINGS. LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

I loved the analogy of a garden and a new beginning. We must nurture our souls as something precious.

Wonderful!! It seems we pull the weeds...and they come back stronger. Our faith keeps us pulling! I love your capture in this one.

"The Garden Weeds and Me"
Spiritually enlightening write and
a wonderful penning.
"A clean heart
The soul, a ready vase
For God to fill
With His gifts, His blossoms."
I must concur weeding keeps us anew.

This is a beautiful write, few words have said very much. I think we all need to take a moment and pull the weeds from our soul. After reading your homepage, I was amazed at the strength and courage that you have. My Gosh! you have done more in your lifetime than what most people can only dream of. Congratulations on your books. You remind me much of my mother, the inner strength and the drive filled with determination. You Go Girl...look forward to reading more.

God Bless,

"Pull the weeds from my soul" Indeed a double amen to this insight!

It is good when we are given these revelations. We can know for certain from whence they come and act accordingly to improve and prepare ourselves.

Beautiful and wise pen . . .
