The Whole World is a Garden

"If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden."
- Frances Hodgson Burnett


Throughout our lives, we will face situations that are beyond our control. Some of those circumstances can be devastating and take time to process and overcome. However, on a typical day, without any extraordinary events, our perspective toward life controls our attitude, mood, and behavior. We can choose to complain, or we can choose to rejoice. “Philosophy,” by John Kendrick Bangs, is a poem that speaks to personal interpretation of the obvious that many of us find difficult to see.

 

Philosophy by John Kendrick Bangs

If there’s no Sun, I can still have the Moon;
If there’s no Moon, the Stars my needs suffice;
And if these fail, I have my Evening Lamp;
Or, Lampless, there’s my trusted Tallow Dip;
And if the Dip goes out; my Couch remains;
Where I may sleep and dream there’s Light again.

However, understanding the scriptures and stories in the Bible can sometimes feel overwhelming. To remedy this problem, Thomas Nelson, has authored the NKJV Study Bible, which I received from The Blythe Daniel Agency, Inc. I find this study guide to be quite practical, useful, and easy to comprehend. Watch this brief video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tleEMGjjfaw for how NKJV Study Bible may apply to your life.
