A Garden For Daily Living

I received the following poem in a Christmas card this year and wanted to share it with you.  
I hope you enjoy it as I did.



A Garden For Daily Living
 by Imel Timberlake and Mary Helen Looney







 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 four rows of lettuce

Lettuce be faithful
Lettuce be kind
Lettuce be happy
Lettuce really love one another









 No garden should be without turnips

Turnip for service when needed
Turnip to help one another
Turnip the music and dance


 







To conclude our garden we must have thyme

Thyme for fun
Thyme for rest
Thyme for ourselves



 







Water freely with patience and cultivate with love.















There is much fruit in your garden because you reap what you sow.












Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
