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!
