My Mom has lived in northern Minnesota since she and my Dad retired over 10 years ago. Okay, I know, who retires to Northern Minnesota? Well, if you could see the lake and house that they retired to, your questions would be answered. But one of my favorite parts of the lake house is the garden that my Mom has put together. She is not a big plant person, so the flowers are not really the focus of this garden. She originally called it her prayer garden. Just a little piece of the world that she could call her own and meet with Jesus there. She has things in the garden that remind her of the people that are on her prayer list. I like to picture her walking down the little rock covered path praying for me and my family. One of the things that I have been able to count on over the years is that my family has always been covered by the prayers of my Mom, and before they died my Dad and both sets of Grandparents. The heritage of Christ followers in my family has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. Gardens don't just have to be for flowers and plants they can be full of the prayers of a Grandma for the ones that she loves.
