Gardening God’s Way

Plant three rows of peas
Peace of Mind
Peace of Heart
Peace of Soul

Plant four rows of squash —
Squash gossip,
Squash indifference,
Squash grumbling,
Squash selfishness.

Plant five rows of lettuce —
Lettuce us be faithful,
Lettuce us be kind,
Lettuce us be obedient,
Lettuce us seek truth,
Lettuce us really love one another.

There can be no garden without turnips—
Turnip for meetings,
Turnip for service,
Turnip to help one another.

Water freely with patience
And cultivate with love,
For you will reap what you sow.

To conclude our garden, we must have
Thyme for God,
Thyme for prayer,
Thyme for study,
Thyme for friends.
