In the fall of 2007, as I completed the requirements for certification as a Texas Master Gardener, the Lord first planted in my heart the desire to establish a Biblical prayer garden. What started as a simple research and planting project for my Junior Master Gardeners–the Glory Gardeners–soon blossomed into a fully formed vision of a garden based on the Twelve Tribes of Israel. This garden would be a place of meditation and community for the Body of Christ. It would be a living representation of God’s chosen land right here in North Texas, complete with the relatives of Biblical plant species that are native or adapted to our part of the world. The garden would be a reflection of God’s loving care for His creation. After all, He is the ultimate Master Gardener.
After several years of waiting, it is finally time to start clearing, preparing, and planting the garden that God designed on a piece of property in Corinth, Texas. As the prophet Isaiah said, “You shall no longer be termed forsaken, nor shall your land any more be termed desolate; but you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married” (Isaiah 62:4).
This blog is intended to connect you to the land in Corinth so that you can witness and participate in the restoration of a forgotten landscape. So, please, come back often, and be a part of the transformation process.
Blessings from Corinth,
Pam Pierce, Master Gardener
