In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life.
-James 1:21 (MSG)
I love gardening—yes, that’s me with my grandsons in my flower garden. Praise God that He is like a gardener in our lives and that He transforms us through His Word, bringing beauty and life from ashes. May our lives clearly shine with His salvation message.
