A curated garden of devotional treasures

Whatever the stresses and struggles of your day, this blog aims to be a place where you can find inspiration, encouragement and insight. It includes devotional reflections on the Christian calendar and inspiration drawn from nature, art and gardening. Think of it as an oasis from the noise of the world, a nourishing buffet for your spirit. And I’m so glad you’re here! So, please linger a while, read, consider, share your own thoughts… and I pray you’ll leave again refreshed.
