My Heart is a Garden

My heart is a garden
Where Jesus and i walk
We ponder the meaning of each flower
We listen and we talk
Some flowers were planted years before
And some flowers are new and rare
Some flowers need hardly anything
But others need much care
My mother planted love and prayer
And they multiplied into compassion
Others planted patience and values some call old fashion
Jesus waters them all, the old and new
I am ready to work when He calls
Even when the sky isn't blue
Envy, pride and weeds like those
Are pulled out by the root
We plant self-discipline and
Whatever Jesus says will suit
This garden needs us daily
It is in God's safekeeping
My heart is a garden
It is watered by my weeping
