A garden is a good teacher. If heeded, our hearts soften as our hands toughen. – Joel J. Miller
Lenten season is coming and it is a time where we reflect in ourselves. Joel J. Miller shares his reflections on what gardening has taught him on his article posted in Patheos.com. He learned that, like a we maintain our garden from weeds and pest, we too must have a well maintained heart. A heart free from weeds and pests like anger, ego. Cultivating a garden is not a one-time thing but an ongoing labor, like we must do in our ways. He also points out that we must make a room for growth like we do in our plants. If we don’t like the fruits of our harvest, we cut it down and plant a new one.
