As I was gardening today, I thought about what I recently read in Edith Schaeffer's book The Hidden Art of Homemaking. She says, "A Christian, who realizes he has been made in the image of the Creator and is therefore meant to be creative on a finite level, should certainly have more understanding of his responsibility to treat God's creation with sensitivity, and should develop his talents to do something to beautify his little spot on the world's surface." Her words are more poignant and beautiful within the context of the book. But either way, I agree. And I found my time outside much more fulfilling with the book's inspiration at the forefront of my mind. I have a gardening "to-do list" for this week. I hope the perfect weather continues- sunny, mid 60s!
