a journey to growth...
Let us take the opportunity of Holy Week
to enjoy the fulfilling labour
of working alongside the master gardener
to clear our lives ready for fruitfulness.
Let us surrender to God the barren ground
of good intentions and unfulfilled aims.
Let us be ready for him to prune us
so that more fruit can be produced.
May we revel in his closeness as he tends our hearts
and plants the seeds of new growth in our lives.
In Holy Week
let us walk in faith through the garden of our lives
growing ever closer to Christ, through the love of the Father.
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you,
you will bear much fruit. John 15:5
