Reflection: Like a Watered Garden
There is such satisfaction
In seeing a garden thrive and flourish,
Well watered and nourished
Each flower a wondrous design,
And all together a symphony of colours
And a harmony of fragrances,
A blending of beauty, a joyous splendour.
Yet how more, Lord, do we give you joy
When we thrive and flourish
In harmony with you!
For like a well-watered garden,
Whose waters never fail,
So we are nourished by your love,
A love that never fails.
Lord, pour gifts of your love upon me
As you pour down rain on the earth!
Shine your goodness and warmth into my heart,
As the sun shines down to give life!
Lord, give me all that I need
To grow in love of you. Amen
