Time to visit the gardens,the English Gardens,that is.
I have not been to these gardens as often as I would have liked to go,but on a visit in June I was able to capture abundant beauty.
Let's walk through the gardens and as we do I will share a few verses from a calendar called,Two Voices One Song,The Harmony of Friends.
Sometimes it is a slender thread,sometimes a strong,stout rope;
She/he clings to one end,I to the other;
She/he calls it friendship;I call it hope.
We all hold one another's dreams.
We all hold each other's fragile hopes in our hands.
We all touch each other's hearts.
Good company on a journey makes the way seem all the shorter.
Today well-lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Friendship,like a garden in season,nourishes those who share in its bounty.
Happiness is being at peace;being with loved ones;being comfortable…..
But most of all,it's having those loved ones.
The Lord longs to be gracious to you;He rises to show you compassion.
You are valuable just because you exist.
Not because of what you do or what you have done,but simply because you are.
Other things may change us,but we start and end with family.
True friendship is a comfortable place of quiet understanding,laughter and grace.
GOD IS SO GOOD….HIS LOVE KNOWS NO END…AND WHAT SHOWS IT MORE THAN THE GIFT OF A FRIEND?
