It’s become a sort of tradition
The Good News Easter Egg Hunt.
Happening on the Saturday between
And Easter Sunday.
John and I are the official host
But it’s actually put together by the Nurture Committee at our church.
I really like that word.
It is defined as
“To care for and encourage the growth or development of someone or something.”
And that is what we do
As a church
As a committee
And as individuals.
Encourage one another.
What better place to nurture someone
Than in a garden
A happy garden is one that is not necessarily
But well nurtured.
The difference to me is that a well nurtured garden
Is done so willingly – lovingly.
Often people walk into my garden
And remark how much work it must be.
The truth is it is not work at all
It’s the place I go
I love sharing it
With the children
And families who come every year.
There are many ways to nurture a child.
Inviting them into your garden
To romp and play
To explore and discover
Is, to me, the very definition of nurturing.
Thank you to Abbey, Andrew, Beth, Eddie Lou, Katie, Kay, Keith, Mary, Megann & Tashanna
