A Garden for 2014

Dear Friends,

I received the following from a parishioner. What a beautiful world we would live in if everyone would respect each other enough to act upon the words that follow:

What a great time to think about planning your Spiritual 2014 Garden! As you plant it, the following may support you.

A GARDEN FOR 2014

Here’s what you need for your spring garden:

Plant five rows of squash:
Squash gossip
Squash criticism
Squash indifference
Squash resentments
Squash bigotry and prejudice

Plant seven rows of peas:
Prayer
Promptness
Perseverance
Politeness
Preparedness
Purity
Patience

Plant seven heads of lettuce:
Let us be unselfish and loyal
Let us be faithful to duty
Let us search the scripture
Let us not be weary in well doing
Let us be obedient in all things
Let us be truthful
Let us love one another

No garden is complete without turnips:
Turn up with a smile, even when things are difficult.
Turn up with determination to do your best in God’s service

Let’s pray for sunshine….go out into the light and plant a beautiful garden.

Have a good week!

Fr. Martin
