Today's topic is Garden.
I love gardens. I love walking through them and admiring the beautiful flowers and/or vegetables. I even love rock gardens. I love statues and sun catchers. I love Gardens.
I hate gardening. I hate weeding and hoeing and trimming. I hate stooping over to pull weeds instead of smelling flowers. I hate picking vegetables instead of picking up vegetables at my CSA.
I love the results of gardening, except for the results of the Garden of Eden. Those results didn't turn out too well for us....Thanks Adam and Eve. But I do love the lesson of the Garden of Eden. And the lesson to me is that we should be content and love our lives as they are....as the way God planned it. It is when we are discontent and looking for more and more to make us happy that we look our way right into unhappiness and trouble. We need to look around the garden that is our home and see the beauty within. Yes, it takes work to have that beauty but in the end it is well worth it.

Inside, in the garden that is their home, you find laughter and love.
