My garden is fragrant and full of new life.
I am crazy-happy with all of the beautiful colors and of course, torn by the usual dilemma:
Do I leave the flowers on their bushes to bloom and grow and fade naturally? (And therefore let my neighbors enjoy the beauty that is Marta's Garden in the spring?)
Or do I trim off some of the gorgeous blooms and bring them inside so that I can enjoy and appreciate them in a close and personal setting and let my family get the maximum benefit?
Or do I just split the difference? Share some. Keep some. Yes, I think that's best.
As usual, my garden is once again a fitting metaphor, not just for my own personal life, but for the promise of new life that Easter brings.
To all of you faithful MBFCF readers:
Have a happy and blessed Easter.
Nowlet the heavens be joyful,
Let earth her song begin:
Let the round world keep triumph,
And all that is therein;
Invisible and visible,
Their notes let all things blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen
Our joy that hath no end.
~Saint John of Damascus
