God in the Garden

RosesPerhaps I am seeking God in beauty.

I bring flowers into the house. I make feeble attemps to clear the surfaces and let the beauty of my home and the flowers fill each room. Still I must leave the work behind and walk out the door.P1040468

I’d rather walk the paths in the garden. I need to sweat with the effort of hauling rich compost filled with wriggling worms who are doing their part to create this abundance. I need to see the pile of weeds grow as I clear the way for spring starts and annuals.

Digging, planting, clipping; all are a part of the joy of being in this sanctuary that I call mine but that I share with finches, robins, gophers, the neighbors cats, and any friend I can lure into the beauty and peace of my garden.

God is always here.

  1. God is always here. In every petal. In every rock. In every robin. Where there is beauty. I echo your heart’s call. I have missed you! So good to be here and to see your gorgeous, gorgeous garden. There is nothing that beats getting one’s hands deep in the good earth. Sharon

  2. I belong to a tradition, Advaita, that does not believe in one God or many Gods, but knows that there is ONLY God. So, phrased slightly differently, you are bang on.
