Today I was enjoying a glass of ice water with my husband, as we looked out at the garden. I was explaining to him that one of my favorite things to do, when the weather is mild, is garden in my bare feet.
To me it is like a moving mediation. A place of great gratitude to God for not only the beautiful harvest, but for all my blessings. I love the feeling of being a co-creator with God and a participant in the Law of the Harvest. I love playing in the dirt, and it usually shows on my clothes. I love getting wet, the smell of damp grass and dirt, the wonderful harvests and the simple joy of cultivating the earth.
So as fall is upon us I am planting garlic and winter vegetables. After Christmas I will be planting indoor window boxes of salad greens and herbs. These will brighten my day, even if it's raining or snowing.
I want to encourage everyone to play in the dirt and enjoy life's simple blessings!
