One of my sisters and I share the love of gardening. It’s a passion really. She sent me the link for this song stating, “I found our anthem!”


Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow

All it takes is a rake and hoe and a piece of fertile ground

Inch by inch, row by row, someone bless these seeds I sow

Someone warm them from below

Till the rain comes tumbling down

Pullin’ weeds and pickin stones,

We are made of dreams and bones

I feel the need to grow my own cause the time is close at hand

Grain for grain, sun and rain, I’ll find my way in nature’s chain

Tune my body and my brain to the music of the land

Plant your rows straight and long

Temper them with prayer and song

Mother earth will keep you strong if you give her love and care

An old crow watching hungrily from his perch in yonder tree

In my garden, I’m as free as that feathered thief up there

Which song is your anthem for your current season?

For everything its season,

and for every activity under heaven its time:

a time to be born and a time to die;

a time to plant and a time to uproot;

a time to kill and a time to hear;

a time to pull down and a time to build up;

a time to weep and a time to laugh;

at time for mourning and a time for dancing;

a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them;

a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;

a time to seek and a time to lose;

a time to keep and a time to throw away;

a time to tear and a time to mend;

a time for silence and a time for speech;

a time to love and a time to hate;

a time for war and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
