Dear God, let me find a spot in this land that I can tend to and improve for others.

In this forest with its twisting pathways, let me set myself to care for a forgotten corner. Let me, Lord, make it a welcoming and quiet garden, a protected oasis in a wilderness. Travelers on these paths may come upon my garden; let me give them rest and ease. This is its purpose.

Your sun shines down upon the forest canopy and sprinkles its light over all. Perhaps other visitors will make their own gardens.

Lord, let us, your children, play in the ease of this day.

(Letter #1438)
