there's a cool give away...

and it's happening at ZanyMayd...

So here is my story.
 My blog started out about my gardening, since it keeps me moving. It's healing for me. It's where I talk to God the most. When I am on my knees, my hands in His soil(soul) and I feel his smile on me when He shines His sun on my shoulders.
Now, my father in law and I shared a love of gardening...and his backyard was fenced in and you had to go through a metal wire gate to get to the roses, daffidils, tulips, lilacs, lillies, bleeding hearts and of course a tire swing right in the middle of it all.
There came a time when he took out the old fence and pulled the gate. It was given to me for safe keeping. It's the gate you see by my shed...and it no longer swings but is staked upright for a rose to grow upon now.
 So when I was thinking up a name, I thought of the gate, and the wonders that always laid beyond that gate for many years.
 Beyond the Garden Gate is a world that God created...and I get to dwell in for strength, peace, and unconditional love.
 And everyday, I do my very best to share that with everyone else.
 To freely give away what I have been given.
Everyone is welcome Beyond the Garden Gate...it always swings open.

Now go and play along...
hurry...
it will be over before you know it!
