Do you remember the song “Mocking Bird Hill”? It starts: “Tra la la twiddle dee dee dee it gives me a thrill to wake up in the morning to the mocking bird’s trill”…. the last verse…
“When it’s late in the evening I climb up my hill and survey all my kingdom while everything’s still…”
And that is what I do…survey all my kingdom(garden)
In the summer I love to stroll thru my gardens to sit awhile here and there enjoying each spot. I come in the early morning…I meander thru during the heat of the day finding a shady spot to rest and I come at twilight….and “I survey all my kingdom while everthing is still”
I marvel at the beauty of growing blooming things…of how that tiny seed I pushed into the soil has become a mass of beautiful flowers…and it brings to mind a verse I read somewhere. I have it painted on a sign which hangs in my garden today.
“Who plants a seed beneath the sod
And waits to see, believes in God.”
God is sharing His Kingdom with me!!!!!
