1066. God Almighty first planted a garden. And indeed it is the purest of human pleasures. ~Francis Bacon

A garden is a delight to the eye
and a solace for the soul.

Who hath a garden, he has joy,
However small his plot may be.
Wide his horizons; in his demesne
Master of beauty and life is he.

God has gracious smiled on him,
Made him a helper in His great task–
Building a glorious world in time;
What finer task could anyone ask?

Who hath a garden, he has friends–
Lilies and roses will not forsake;
When they depart, ‘tis but for a time;
They will return when the spring winds wake.

Let him rejoice on his kingly throne
Who hath a garden of pink and gold;
Kings bear burdens and soon are gray–
Who hath a garden shall not grow old.
~Thomas Curtis Clark

Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. ~Psalm 47:1  ✝

  1. What a beautiful collage. I love all the vibrant colorful flowers and it fits perfectly with the poem. And now I’m longing for spring… soon, very soon it will come! 🙂

  2. Hi Natalie. Just dropping by to see what you are up to. I have most of these photos pinned also, and love the poem. Surrounding myself with flower images, silk flowers, floral scent, everything I can to promote healing thoughts and pain relief. And as usual, you have the perfect post I need to see the first thing as I open my reader. Thank you sweet Natalie. Miss everyone so much, but just not much strength left right now. Still fighting my monsters though. Getting used to the pain now, and able to do more things by ignoring the feelings. Love and HUGS. A.
