How to Plant a Garden of Daily Living | Gracious Living

Meredith Sweetpea came across this poem recently, and although she does not know it, she takes it words to heart. Please allow me to share it with you so that you might add grace and beauty to your life.

How to Plant a Garden

For the garden of your daily living,
plant three rows of peas:

  • peace of mind
  • peace of heart
  • peace of soul.

Plant three rows of squash:

  • squash gossip
  • squash indifference
  • squash selfishness.

Plant four rows of lettuce:

  • lettuce be faithful
  • lettuce be kind
  • lettuce be patient
  • lettuce really love one another.

No gardens should be without turnips:

  • turnip for meetings
  • turnip for service
  • turnip to help one another

To conclude our garden we must have thyme:

  • thyme for each other
  • thyme for family
  • thyme for friends.

Water freely with patience and cultivate with love, there is much fruit in your garden because you reap what you sow – become a caretaker of Community, become a master gardener.
