Plant Yourself in God's Garden and then go forth Offering God's Tender Mercies.
I have a vision of a beautiful spiral....at its center is my person....each of us lives in a beautiful spiral....we may not be aware of it....but we do. Around the center of the person....the planted seed...is God's Garden. Which is always with us to nourish us and sustain us and allow us to be healthy, vibrant, loving people who can offer the world God's tender mercies....
To stay planted in God's Garden requires of us some awareness and action. In God's garden there are many gifts. One of them is the natural world. We need to craft each day with time and attention outside in nature. We need to be kissed by the sun, the moon, the wind and the rain. Our faces need the color of vitality and brightness. Even during difficult winters......intentional time by a window...observing nature. God also gave us movement. Time devoted to movement....God created us to move....long walks...dancing....chair exercise...yoga...sports.... God also gave us the arts....we need to enjoy music, art, theater on a daily basis. And of course God gave us good loving people to be in the community garden with.
