Today’s Reflection: Advice from a Garden –
Cultivate lasting friendships;
Sow seeds of kindness;
Listen to sage advice;
Don’t let little things bug you;
Be outstanding in your field;
Take thyme for yourself;
No vining. — Unattributed.

Today’s Reflection: Thus we see that silence, which is so important in our growth in newness of life, is no negative barren condition, but the intense activity of creative love, the breath of God at work in the garden of the soul. — Estelle C. Carver, Newness of Life, 1956.

Today’s Reflection: Lord, bring your saints into my garden to remind me each day through their examples. Let St. Francis inspire me to love the birds and all living things. Let St. Phocas the gardener be my guide in enriching the soil. Through St. Thérèse, the Little Flower, may I make every act, no matter how small, one that honors you. Amen. — from God In The Garden.

Today’s Reflection: It is an old European custom to weave the palm into small crosses. The farmer and his family would walk through each of his fields placing a little cross of palm in each one. We may sanctify our own garden to Christ in the very same way. — from God In The Garden.

Today’s Reflection: Lord, give me increased patience each and every day. Keep me from hurrying through life at the pace of the world when I should be quietly living at the gentle pace of the heart. Now that I am older, let me take a new look at the world and appreciate the slow and gradual changes that are the essence of the garden. Amen. — Maureen Gilmer, God in the Garden.
