    What a great little poem, Melody. You always pack so much for me to think about in your words! Like patience being sown . . .thank you!

    Does Patience grow best in difficult soil?

    • melodylowes says:

      Unfortunately, I think it really does. Sheesh. I’m pretty sure I’d like to try some good fluffy volcanic loam just once. πŸ™‚

      • Gallivanta says:

        Ah, yes, but if it grew too easily we would have to change the name….it wouldn’t be patience anymore. Oh, life is full of complications and vexations πŸ˜‰

      • melodylowes says:

        You’re right. If it grew on trees (and not the kind that you have to scale a cliff for and dodge huge thorns to boot!) it wouldn’t be quite the same. Drat.

  3. Hi Melody, Lovely poem and photo. It is amazing to think of the perennials that will bloom again.

  4. Waiting on the Lord is a fruitful garden, isn’t it Melody ?

  5. Reblogged this on Teacher as Transformer and commented:
    I am on the road and took a few minutes to check email. I found this beautiful poem about Sabbath rest and patience. It has such a Zen quality as we sow the seeds of virtue that we need to make the world a better place.

    Oh I love that “patience being sown”–I’m getting so much better at that (from time to time, not always–in case you’re taking notes). God bless you BIG.

  7. This is so lovely. Thank you for sharing!! πŸ™‚

  8. RoSy says:

    I’m impatient! πŸ˜‰

    πŸ™‚ Love your verse, Melody.

    There is no time as Sabbath’s rest
    To dwell upon the worst, the best
    Of wrested, soulful sighs of test
    That made us who we are.
