MY GARDEN- 1/10: WATERING by Gary Bertnick 

He waters in peacefulnessGlad servant of the Master Gardener

Encouragement given that flows daily

Within, then without;

The ground about is often dry

The ground is hard again

Sun so harsh, withering all life,

But this one walks His chosen path

From plant to plant

Up and down each row

Around each bed

Even scattered plants in the fields as well.

At times tears mix with the water,

These plants cared for, tenderly day after day

Many days that go on for years

And yet, little fruit on the stem,

No lasting fruit on the vine!

Tireless prayers are spoken from the heart without ceasing

Then, “Mercy and Love” says to water them one more time;

So he steadfastly waters on

Led by the Master’s strength

Led by the Master’s Spirit of Love!
