Monday Morning

Normally, I don’t go to the garden on Monday mornings, but this morning I knew I was supposed to go.  When I arrived shortly after 8:00, the faithful crew–James, Sue, Jesus, and Irving–was gathered around a table in Manasseh.  They had just finished reading their portion in the book of Nehemiah.  We spent the next half hour enjoying quiet fellowship as the early morning breeze washed over us.  There was such a strong presence of the Lord in the garden this morning that we all just basked in His presence and waited until we knew it was time to get to work!  As we all set our hands to the plow, so to speak, a white van pulled up near the entrance to the tribe of Asher.  A group of young people and their adult chaperones from Oklahoma City, on their way to youth camp in Columbus, Texas, stopped to visit the garden.  A little while later, a couple from the Waco area arrived.  They had driven all morning to deliver a gift of stained glass panels that will one day be used to create something beautiful for the garden or the prayer tower.  Just before those visitors left, Chuck and his traveling troupe arrived to walk through the garden before heading out for Arkansas.  I was glad that I came to the garden on a Monday morning.

Progress continues on the garden structures.  Planting has slowed down to a crawl because of the heat, but I want you to see what is going on in the garden.  Bless you!

    We are amazed and thrilled at the creativeness of the entire garden. How delightful to see you all work in unity and relying on Father to direct each step. Our God is extravagant in His planning of this gorgeous place! Many blessings to James, Sue, Jesus and Irving and all who are there to be laborers in the garden!! You can feel the glory in the pictures and see His presence in the landscape. The star and Menorah are dynamic and the gate at Ephriam is incredible. You have blessed us richly!!

    Dear Pam: At the risk of sounding like a “silly person” I must tell you that I could actually feel the anointing of God on these pictures. The gateway type picture next to the bible verse just glowed with the presence of God. I’m not sure what that picture represents but it has a very special purpose in the garden. Isn’t it awesome the gifts that people are led of God to bring for the garden. May God richly bless every one of you that work so tirelessly in this beautiful garden! Love you, Betty
