"The earth is the Lord's and all it contains..."   Psalm 24:1

We are grateful to God, our Father, for this opportunity to serve Him and His children through The Giving Garden. Thanks be to the Holy Spirit for His continual guidance and provision.

 "You are worthy, O Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things and by Your will they were created and have their being."   

Rev. 4:11

Jesus said, "If you have done it unto the least of these, you have done it unto Me."

Matthew 25:40

Our most valuable resources have been the people who willingly 
stepped forward to advise, provide, assist and yes,
weed and dig in the dirt to maintain the Giving Garden.
