I've started this Healing Garden in honor of my mother - Joan Mary Coate (1932-2017). She wrote this poem despite her advanced stage of Parkinson's. My father - her surviving husband of 61 years of marriage - says he needs to feed the animals. Chickens are the perfect animals for him to feed, since they return the perfect food back to him. The Healing Garden (Lord) Help me to plant the Healing Garden to nurture every need. Pour forth your saving grace. Provide for me the seed. Be patient with my ignorance. Help me persevere. Give my efforts credit. Take away my fears. I may not always understand the time or the reason when calamities happen in each and every season. Lord, help me to lovingly to trust in your way knowing that you are with me each and every day.
