A Well Watered Garden
And the same is true in my life. I am ready for spring. I am ready for renewal after the winter. My scripture verse to memorize for the rest of this month focuses on gardens. I love that my grandma underlined this verse because she was all about gardening. She planted her last garden at age 103 and we calculated that she gardened for about ninety-five years of her life -- either with her mother or on her own. That's a lifetime gardener. And having lived through The Depression as a farmer's wife in the 1930s she well understood the meaning of having a well-watered garden in a sun-scorched land.
The Lord will guide you always;
He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
