Planting Gods Seeds

“You have been born anew, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God.”
—1 Peter 1:23 (RSV)

Plant three rows of peas: (peace)
  • Peas of mind
  • Peas of heart
  • Peas of soul
Plant four rows of squash:
  • Squash gossip
  • Squash indifference
  • Squash selfishness
  • Squash your pride
Plant four rows of lettuce:
  • Lettuce be faithful
  • Lettuce be kind
  • Lettuce really love one another
  • Lettuce be generous to others
Every garden needs some turnips:
  • Turnip for meetings
  • Turnip for service
  • Turnip to help one another
Water freely with patience and cultivate with love. There will be so much fruit in your garden, because you always reap what you sow.

To conclude our garden, we must have thyme:
  • Thyme for God
  • Thyme for prayer
  • Thyme for family
  • Thyme to stop and smell a rose
  • Thyme to give someone else a word of encouragement
  • Thyme to smile at a stranger
  • Thyme to enjoy a beautiful sunset
  • Thyme to hug a child
  • Thyme to say: “I really look forward to seeing you again.” –and mean every word of it.
  • Thyme to say: “God be with you ’till we meet again.”
Peas to you all…
