With all this cold, long winter, I can't wait till I can get back to gardening. But it may not be this year because of all the work that's going on at the cottage.
Beautiful blooms and a bountiful harvest requires good soil.
In the Bible, Jesus use a word picture of garden dirt to help us understand how the beauty and the bounty of our character, our life, and our deeds are dependent upon the condition of our Heart (soil).
The seed of God's Word requires GOOD SOIL to germinate, take root, grow deep and bear abundant fruit.
(paragraph taken from this book)
Create in me a rich and fertile (heart) soil. O God, and clean out every weed that keeps me from enjoying your presence and bringing you glory........
Psalm 72:19 Let the whole earth be filled with His glory!
John 15:5 I am the vine; you are the branches.........abide in me.....
Psalm 103:2...... Forget not all His benefits
Proverbs 11:18.... He who sows righteousness......REAPS a sure reward
I have learned the secret of being content......
Psalm 118:24......This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it!
Have a wonderful and blessed week~~~Roxie
