Come on a spiritual journey, a journey of beautiful flowers and a sojourn into the depths of Christian love. Join author and seasoned gardener Tom Clarke as he artistically describes the natural beauty of flowers and the multi-faceted dimensions of love. Feel the Lord's gentle touch as thirty flowers are colorfully presented from the Gethsemane Prayer Garden. Unique aspects of each flower are then brought out as representations of God's love and our heartfelt response. The hope is that through this book, each person will richly and deeply experience the love of Christ.
A GARDEN OF LOVE starts with the author’s ideas about the particular plant he’s writing about, along with a beautiful picture. It gives a description of the plant, when it blooms, and fragrance. It is followed by bible verses, prayer and thoughts about the verses and how the flowers relate to them, then a short application for us to remember as we go about our day. Each devotional is short, only one page—two pages if you count the picture leading up to it.
If you or someone you know loves gardening, then you'll want to get a copy of A GARDEN OF LOVE for yourself or them. This is a perfect book for the coffee table or a devotional.
