God -You have blessed me beyond measure with a summer garden. As I harvest strawberries, tomatoes, zucchinis and cucumbers, I thank You for the lessons I have learned in my garden. It is in giving care to the garden that I have received more than fruits and vegetables. I have learned that You have given me a garden, like my life, but I must weed it to see it grow.
God, please help me weed my life of temptations and sins which stand in the way of being Your faithful steward. Help me remember that every flower must go through lots of dirt to grow and bloom. Amen
