Peace of Heart

Prayer, meditation, sacraments, yes, of course.

But today, it also came from a couple of hours of weeding the garden and pruning some roses. We had so much rain in December followed by a warm spell that they bloomed again. We had roses in December and January. No images of Our Lady in my tilma but a good few roses, the season not withstanding. So today some necessary pruning.

Why should mucking about with shears and shovel and weeding fork bring peace and joy? Doesn't seem logical. But there you are. Or there I am.

Oh, and that's an old picture. Things have grown a great deal in that little corner since then and at the moment the birch has lost its leaves for the winter.
