Me: There is a dead bird in the chapel.
Student 1: Why didn’t you give it mouth to mouth resuscitation?
Me: It was very dead.
Student 2: Why didn’t you pray for it to be raised from the dead?
Me: I don’t have enough faith for that.

rsz_nasturtium2The spade is digging in to the packed ground.
The eternal gardener turns over the dark earth of my heart.
He has good seed in His hand.
I would have been happy with a window box but he wants to plant an estate.
