On Friday, I outlined my Lenten reading plan.
On Sunday, I read Cultivating God’s Garden through Lent by Margaret Rose Realy and my Lenten reading plan changed.
I didn’t intend to read it all in one day, but it was one of those Sundays where I had both the time and the inclination.
Realy’s relating to God through nature and creation spoke to my farm girl sensibilities. She reached through the distance between page and reader and pulled me into spring. She made me consider Lent as a time of growth in the very best ways.
I’ll be rereading this book during Lent. I’ll be sharing it with a few of my favorite fellow gardeners.
And, better yet, I think I’ll be traveling through Lent with that lovely feeling of having done good work well.
