for gardening

IMG_6725

It’s pretty magical to think about the bulbs I have nestled in patches of soil around our home sending up perky blooms several months from now and annually thereafter without any more encouragement from me. And equally marvelous that just a few minutes spent with my hands in the dirt can result in a plant’s survival in place beyond all the years I hope to live. I am thankful for the act of gardening because it is a constant reminder of higher powers at work in a world that humans will likely never fully understand. It is a chance to participate in the cycle of life — the growing of plants that sustain and inspire us with their nutrients, beauty, and endurance.
