In the Garden

Roses 007-LR

It was a garden where the great event took place, the event that both confirmed and changed everything, for you see, that garden tomb is empty!  In a sense, our rebirth took place in a garden.

I can’t speak for anyone else, but for me there’s no better place to meet our Lord in prayer than in a quiet garden.  To me, it seems almost like going back to the place where humanity was created…

There’s an interesting and refreshing combination of nature that consists of God’s creation, and Man as shown by the tending of the garden that strikes me as significant.  It’s like teamwork; when you take God’s part and Man’s part and combine them together you end up with something wonderful.

Raw nature is awesome to behold.  Great cities built by men over many generations can be humbling and inspiring as well, but a well-tended garden is a combination of the two.  Armed with knowledge that this is not only what God intended in the first place but what  He calls us to in the present day, can there be anything more inspiring than a garden?

Yes, a garden… Where it all began, and where it all began again. A garden, where it begins anew every day!

  1. I love gardening. It’s a time of reflection and prayer. You’re right, it started with the Garden of Eden, Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, He was entombed in the Garden, and we’ll enjoy the fruits of the Tree of Life throughout eternity. May the reality of the cost of eternity permeate your spirit. Many blessings, Karen

  3. It always amazes to think that our life’s journey began in the Garden of Eden and will conclude in the Garden City of Paradise, but to get there we must encounter the Garden of Gethsemane.
