This morning, someone in the group asked the question, “How will you add beauty to your day?” Since the weather is lovely, I knew the answer. After working out and visiting Mom, I was going to create a rock garden. I've been collecting rocks for some time now. Today was the day.
Once again, the theme ‘labor to enter into rest’ came to mind. Beauty gives my soul rest, but creating beauty is labor. Whether it’s dancing, painting, writing or gardening you have to put the work in for any sort of beauty to result. Oh my, did I labor. In hindsight, I shouldn't have gone to the gym this morning. It will be days before I will be able to move easily again.
But digging in the dirt feeds my soul, and the end result is good, albeit small. I have a lovely little corner garden. However, I want to do the entire bank because I’m sick of mowing the incline….and I've run out of rocks.
