Gardening: The Spritual Discipline so Often Overlooked

A Gardener's Prayer

Oh Lord, give your servant a plot of land - small if it must be - for him to plant and grow; to care for and love; to mature and nurture. Let it not be only for his body's sake, but let him do it for his soul, that he may be reminded of what he is made and to what he shall return, in the name of Him who is the Word which causes all things to grow through the power of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

this and that...

Yet another example of what I do in my spare time... when I'm lucky enough to get some.

Thus endeth Sexegesima.

Well Sexigesima has come and gone in naught but a wink. And Ash Wednesday is sitting there in the middle of the road like a forlorn, forgotten, and unforgiven cousin, wearing only the humble garb of penitence and sorrow.

But Lent has not arrived yet. And the joys of Epiphany still seem to surround me. More now, I think that in actual Epiphany tide. It is as if they don't want to let me go - protecting me, comforting me as I enter into trails and hardships. The pleasures of King Cake and homemade pasta kept me company at the end of the week. . Could it have been any better?

It was a good week. For some reason, I was just.... happy. I had no cares or concerns. Nothing could really grate against my nerves, and I don't really know why. But thats how it was...
