Martha and the Gardener

The Gift of Faith

A distant rumble

cannot darken my delight

in nature’s beauty

When I got my first home, knowing nothing of gardening, I was amazed when the neglected yard suddenly, come Spring, had lilies in bloom!  When I relocated some years later filled with hopes and dreams, I also faced many unexpected challenges. I still do. Come spring though, I was again surprised by lilies!  I still know nothing about gardening, but I know my Savior’s redeeming love.  I saw it that day in the lilies He gave to me! The lilies bloomed again today!

    These orange lilies are one of my favourite flowers, so brilliant, but yet so easy to take care of.
