I was sitting on the earth making the beds of collected flowers, shrubs and various plants look prettier. Some of you would call it weeding, but the emphasis and the spirit of my task is entirely different from the drudgery that is associated with that term. I was taking my time and taking my time all at once. It was bliss. It doesn't get any better than this in the Things I get to do today--play in the earth, rearrange for my pleasure the beauty of these that grow, and bless each with my heart and love as they are seen and touched.
