Just like my garden, my heart needs water.
Just like the flowers, my heart needs sunshine.
It is impossible for most things to grow in the dark, cold places.
Oh they may start there, but eventually sunshine is needed.
Our hearts need love, hope, truth, and peace.
Our hearts need grace, forgiveness, strength, and purpose.
Truth is like water on thirsty ground.
Friendship and kindness are sunshine and hope.
Then hope produces purpose.
Seeds of kindness become acts of mercy.
and a beautiful harvest feeds many.
