Homeage to the Elm St. garden with my poem:
"Weed's & deeds"
If I don't extract the weeds from the Elm street garden;
those entangled deep, their elaborate root systems,
veins buroughed deep into the earth
next time I visit the garden, I see little weed heads poking out of the dirt,
just like sinful deeds in my own life,
I must dig deep,
& confess my sins & ask God in again.
thus, God extracts the whole root system hidden deep in the chambers of my heart.
or guess what?
little sinful weeds poke out, darkness in the garden of my heart.

"I was kissed by an angel for 33 years &
didn't even know it, until she flew home..
fly away angel fly away.
'till we meet on the other side sweetpea.
for one more hug, just one more hug,
& a kiss on your sweet cheek.
i love you, my sweet angel."
It started with an idea. What better way to honor God's love for us then with beautiful garden! We could clear away the rocks & weeds, material of past beauty, & add new soil with the proper nutriments to create a wonderful meditative spiritual corner. Our backyard would be a haven to refresh our souls & reflect on His Plans for Our Lives. Watching the miracle of something growing from a seed, is one of the ways Our Father in Heaven reminds us that He is Our Creator!
"Garden Reflections: writings inspired while sitting in Alanna's Garden."
Once, I held the tiny watermelon seed in the palm of my hand;
Isaiah 49:16 "Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hand." Oh beautiful melon! sleep on your blanket of dirt,
green vines cradle you!'
Witness of Our Father's Love!
Dark leaves, soldiers standing watch over first melon of Our Beautiful, Bountiful Garden! How you shadow Our Father's Love & Promises, Psalm 23:1 "The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing."
Alanna's Garden has her spirit, humming birds, lady bugs, cat's
frolicking, red feather bows on funky birds, sing songs above girl's reading 12-step devotions! and Recovery Bibles!
God's heart sings when we Glorify Him!
