Garden of The Lord

11x14A-250 Rainbow FallsSweet Mother, come to me.
Visit my ground.
See my wild, unruly state.
Take pity,
Take time,
Take me.

In your holy vision,
Contemplate the Face of your Son,
Recreate His countenance in Me.
Clear me.
Clean me.
Cultivate me.

Come again and again and again,
Work the miracle of grace upon grace.
With hand,
With hoe ,
Sun and rain.

Make me a garden.
Prepare it by your prayer and presence.
For His good pleasure.
Plant seeds.
Envision beauty.
Raise roses.

Then on this plain of your true humility,
Raise me for His pure delight,
Here to welcome heaven,
To sing,
To play,
To dance.

    • What wonderful thing to say. But in truth, you may be tired but “jaded” I don’t think so. All that Truth you delve into and share has left its mark. Might even call it “a signal grace”.
      I re-read your comment and decided that you were not speaking of yourself but of whoever was tired and jaded and needed a bit of inspiration to get their needle off bored and unenthusiastic. Thank you, Barb.
