I love a beautiful garden ... especially this time of year when everything is in bloom.
Recently, I stepped into a garden that was lush with green plants, fragrant flowers, and singing birds. In the center of the garden, the gardener talked to the birds as they fluttered around him. His face was full of wonder and love as he held out his hands toward the birds. His eyes crinkled with laughter as the birds rested on his outstretched arms.
I didn't think he knew I was there as I silently watched him interacting with the birds.
But I should have known better.
The Gardner knows and sees all who enter into His garden. And He welcomes all with wonder and love and outstretched arms.
