This week I have had two conversations that simply made me happy, the glad heart sort of happy. Both our daughters were talking to me about their gardens and how much they love growing things. Our phone calls have been about raised beds and what to plant when and how rewarding it is to go outside and pick a big ripe tomato, or get lettuce right out of the raised bed to put in your burger, in our case, it seems like they are veggie burgers ! Sometimes we wonder if all the work we did with our small children, made a difference and I can say today, that it has for us. Now that the children are not home to help us weed the garden, we had to buy a cultivator to help with the work.
Today, I spent quite a bit of time weeding the garlic and the whole time I was out there, I felt as it I was in the most beautiful cathedral. I felt the presence of God, and I understood completely why God put the first man and woman in a garden.
