Gardening can help when heart is troubled

Let your garden grow.

There’s peace within a garden, a peace so calm that when a heart is troubled, it’s like a soothing balm.

There’s life within a garden, a life that still goes on filling the empty places when older plants are gone.

There’s glory in the garden, at every time of year: spring, summer, autumn and winter, to fill the heart with cheer.

So, ever tend your garden, its beauty to increase, for in it you’ll find solace and in it you’ll find peace.

The Rev. Barbara Rose
