Our Inhabited Garden

“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone who thinks and feels with us, and who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden” (Johann Wolfgang von Geothe).

This has always been one of my favorite quotations. I found it when I was a teenager and had romantic notions about what it meant. I still like it but now I see it from a different perspective. Jesus is the only one who truly thinks and feels with us and because of his Spirit, the inhabited garden of earth is full of brothers and sisters in Christ and angel helpers.

  1. Amen, Tammy! Back from the “feast” days I have connected with people from all over the world. And even now, when I travel, I try to connect with GCI brethren and will do so this year when I travel to New Zealand and Australia. I look forward to reading your posts. They literally “make my day” Love and Blessings always, Ada Wilson
