The world has a way Of making you feel Not very good Like what’s the deal Not quite good enough Without any skill Causing stress head ache Needing some advil Destroys confidence With a mental drain Physical hardship Plenty of pain But faith in God’s Way Brings competence Adds confidence As a consequence So get nourishment For the inner soul Where the true King lives And makes you whole

Photo – The English take their gardens serious. This picture was taken at Hampton Court in England. We also need to take serious the inner garden of our soul. Taking care so that what is unseen is also beautiful and seen on the outside with acts of kindness. This picture is a garden at Hampton Court which is a royal palace near London.
