Yesterday I posted a little note on "Gossip" but somehow Natasha hasn't 
got it yet.  If it doesn't make the list by Monday I'll repost. 

Today G stands for Garden. I thought about this as I was leaving the 
temple this morning after doing 3 endowment sessions.  Come to think of 
it the morning was spent by the time I left the temple, so correct that 
to 'this afternoon'.

Anyway G stands for garden.  That wonderful place where if we will just 
put the right conditions into place the Lord will provide a miracle. In 
a garden you must prepare the soil, water it, fertilize it and protect 
it from infestations of weeds. (One of my favorite rhyming axioms; A man 
of words and not of deeds is like a garden full of weeds.")  And a 
garden needs rest.  Mine is resting under two feet of snow just now. But 
in a few months, if I do my part the Lord will produce the great miracle 
of new life and beauty (I'm a flower man as much as a vegetable raiser. 
Another verse:  Mistress Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden 
grow?) How does your garden grow? If you put the conditions right, God 
will provide you a miracle of new life and beauty.

Each of us is a garden waiting to produce beautiful flowers, sweet fruit 
and wholesome food, if we will just put the conditions right. Storms and 
droughts and whirlwinds may set us back for a season, but over a 
lifetime a lot of great produce can come from any well kept garden... or 
from any well ordered life that allows God to direct it.

executed at any time according to my own pleasure.  It gives me great 
comfort!" (The Little Princess)
