"For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations." Isaiah 61:11
Today was get the garden ready day! We cleaned out, tilled up, added new soil, tilled in, and raked smooth. We pulled weeds, lay bricks to line a pathway, spread mulch. There is still work to do but we got a lot done! After a day of hard work the beds are ready to plant. I will be sore tomorrow I'm sure, but the first day of gardening always makes me happy. It means good things are coming!
Tomorrow is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week. The weeks of Lent leading up to this have also been a time of getting ready. And tomorrow praises will spring up as we remember Jesus' entry into Jerusalem.
We're getting ready for Easter!
