Garden Of The Heart…….
Within the living heart of man
There is a garden fair
Conforming to the Master Plan
Of God, Who placed it there:
A wonderland of untilled fields
With strange enchanted soil
Which promises exciting yields
For one with will to toil.
To fill this garden, each should choose
The plants that prove their worth
By bearing blooms which man can use
To beautify the earth….
Like LOVE and FAITH that lives and grows
When set in fertile sod,
And KINDNESS, each a priceless rose
First hybridized by God.
If winds of fate spread seeds of GREED
Throughout the garden spot
And these should sprout, ‘tis time to weed,
To cultivate the plot,
And then to feed with logic, lest
Such parasites despoil,
For thistles only grow their best
In starved neglected soil!
So toil, that through the open gate
More doubtful men may see
How lovely part of God’s Estate –
One human heart – can be,
That they would build a counterpart
Based on a fact WE know ….
When roses bloom within the heart,
No weed has room to grow!
