Blessing for a garden

February 26, 2011

Holy God,
creator of all that is good,
bless this earth,
and bless these seeds of life.
Bless the hands
that plant, water, and weed.
Give us patience to tend our garden
and eyes to see
your beauty revealed here.
Bless all animals and insects of the garden,
that we may coexist peacefully.
Bless all who visit here;
may it give them joy.
Help garden and gardeners to grow,
day by day, in your grace.
