Oh, Give Thanks Unto the Lord!

As Thanksgiving dinner fades slowly into memory–aided by an overloaded digestive system–I want to take the time to thank our generous Father for all of His gifts.  Since my first blog post back in March, we have witnessed restoration and transformation in the Israel Prayer Garden that transcended drought, heat, wind, and time.  During this season of thanksgiving, when we pause to express our thanks for family, friends, and freedom, I want to thank all of those who have given time, plants, labor, gifts, and prayer to see God’s vision come to pass on this little piece of earth in Corinth, Texas.  As the garden enters its well-earned season of rest, we bid a temporary farewell to the heat loving flowers and their pollinating partners and we say hello to the subdued colors of fall and winter.  Soon the garden will be hung with lights in preparation for the Festival of Lights.  Before the decorating begins, here is one more look at the garden on a welcome rainy day earlier this week.  Thank you, Father, for rain, and we trust that more is on the way as we prepare for the sabbath.

Shabbat Shalom!

  1. I am so very thankful to be able to see the beautiful work in the garden through your blog. Since I live in Rusk,Texas, I can’t see it on a regular basis. I love looking at every new and old progress that God has allowed you to make through all of your God given talents. I have learned so much about the new apostolic wineskin and have been blessed beyond words since getting that mind set taught by Chuck, Robert and others. It has totally transformed my life!!God Bless my G.O.Z. family that I pray for daily!!

    Prophetic gardeners prophesy through the use of plants, herbs, flowers and arrangements of elements what God is saying to a people in a place both in the natural and in the spiritual. I hadn’t thought of prophetic gardening until I began to see the Prayer Gardens creation. I believe God is speaking life to a dry and thirsty region through this amazing garden project. Just love the myriad of ways God’s giftings come forth. Thank you so much for sharing!
