Writing for five unedited minutes on the prompt “Visit” for Five Minute Friday (new link begins June 1).
For the past six weeks I’ve visited with God in a garden. We spent hours together in the garden he planted in my heart.
I’m so grateful for many of you who joined me for my series, Meeting God in the Garden. Today is my final post in the series, and please read to the end as I announce a new summer theme and posting schedule.
On Wednesdays in my Meeting God in the Garden series, I host guest interviews with other Christian gardeners. Today I want to introduce you to writer, blogger, and speaker Sarah Koontz.
Sarah Koontz invites Christians of all ages to explore the beauty of God’s design through her blog at SarahKoontz.com. She is a passionate storyteller who enjoys using illustrations to communicate deep spiritual truths. Sarah lives on 13-acres in South Dakota with her husband, two daughters and a rowdy flock of 30 chickens. She revels in their simple, uncluttered life.
When my hydrangea bushes didn’t bloom well one year, I consulted my gardening manual for answers.
Turns out, my untimely pruning caused their decline.
Pruning shrubs is a particular art. Some shrubs, like my spiraea, bloom best when cut all the way to the ground in early spring.
Today for my Meeting God in the Garden series, I have a bonus guest interview with another Christian gardener. Today I want to introduce you to author and blogger Susan Shipe.
Susan is the mother of three adult children, grandmother (a/k/a Mimzy) to 20-year old Hannah and 14-year old Simon, and the wife of her husband, Lowell. They attend Community Church in Mountain City, Tennessee. Susan enjoys writing, reading, organic gardening, traveling, and spending time with her family. Visit her website at hopehearthome.com.
