Sowing the Seeds


Sowing the seeds of forgiveness
A life that is so full and sweet
Casting the bread of kindness
To all that you meet and greet

Spreading great bounties of love
Showered with great gifts of care
Basking in the rays of gladness
A loving heart that's made to share

Showing lots of grace and mercy
Then lace with a handful of peace
Reaping the ripe and golden harvest
Sowing that will never have to cease

    A very positive message on sowing/reaping. I love some good old common sense entwined with words budding from within your heart & mind. (Report) Reply

    IIf you sow the seeds of love, you can reap the harvest of love, not in small measure, but in large quantities! A life of love and care, grace and mercy pleases God and man alike....! Let us aspire to rise to that level....!
