Gardens: Gifts from God

When I look at our garden at home and see the beauty of colors and shapes, it is easy for me to see how our home garden is a gift from God. My favorite plant is the pink bleeding heart that has grown so well over the years. It was a housewarming gift from my aunt. God’s creativity amazes me in our garden, how He made such variety in color, shape, size and scent!

Genesis 2:9  “The Lord God placed all kinds of beautiful trees and fruit trees in the garden. Two other trees were in the middle of the garden. One of the trees gave life – the other gave the power to know the difference between right and wrong.”

In the garden of Eden God created beauty and variety in those plants, too. I imagine the Garden of Eden must have been the ultimate garden, the one that even the most beautiful garden by the most accomplished gardener could not hold a candle to. And yet, when God first created it, He gave it to people to share.

In the next post I will continue with this…
