life as it is seen from my heart and soul

oh my favourite month is here. hot and humid to cool and crisp. I. Love. September.
my anniversary month.
Bilbo Baggins’ birthday  month.
the season of Fall arrives.
mums are everywhere. my Marigolds are gorgeous.
and somehow time slows down. but only a little.
I have started the work of clearing the garden.  and hoping to find some good horse manure to spread on the veggie beds and the asparagus.
on my walk this morning i tend to reflect on the garden and life and my soul.
the fertilizing, the composting, the manure, the produce, the planting for fall peas and lettuces.
it all reflects me. the tending, the feeding, the compost of my choices, my garden is me; i am my garden.
my children think i am joking when i say “when I am dead and gone, just bury me in the garden!”  i am not joking. my garden is where they dug little holes to plant flowers with chubby fingers. my garden is where i have sat and watched the moonrise with tears of depression flowing from me. my garden has fed my family for 30 years.
it has taught me about drought and fungus and how to thrive in all types of weather. and it has reflected my Lord in every season. His grace. His goodness. His tending of my soul as i have tended my gardens.
so in September i ponder what is He clearing from my soul as i clear my garden for the winter?
what joys will i find in September that He has hidden for me?
may your September find you blessed in the graces of Jesus.
