The Prayer Garden at our church is beautiful and suffered from neglect. The more it is used, the more beautiful it grows. Follow along with the seasons of the year and pray through all of the seasons of your heart. It is hard to see the Hibiscus which is behind and to the left of the bench. It froze to the ground and I cut is all the way back. I was chastised.....Now in mid summer it is seven feet tall and flourishing. God's beauty pushes through dead looking stalks.
We are experiencing a drought in our area but the prayer garden is exempt from the brown and dry leaves that are just beyond the gate. May we all water our hearts with prayer and be bigger than the spiritual droughts all around us. God has beauty for you today.
