Today is officially the first day of Summer 2022. There are so many things to enjoy about the Season. My favorite part of Summer is the gardens. I enjoy the little garden in my own yard and visiting other gardens of all types and sizes.
Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the third day.
– Genesis 1:11-13
The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden,
– Genesis 2:8-9
Notice these are two different events in Genesis
- God spoke and all types of vegetation grew on the earth.
- God planted a garden.
Don’t miss this – God was the first gardener!
God is -Creator-Artist-Gardener and so much more…………..
The quote above is a line from the poem “God’s Garden” written by Dorothy Frances Gurney
The very first garden was planted by God.
Think about that while you are in your garden today.
