Sweet Autumn Clematis-

My friend Mary Moore stopped by Open Gardens this week and took some lovely garden photos in evening light to share with you. Each week in the garden are new sights and combinations.  It really is a changing place each week....

Just finished reading The Quotidian Mysteries- Laundry, Liturgy and Women's Work by Kathleen Norris. A semantic look at the word quotidian is: God in the daily life, in the quantity of our days.
As we look at routine things, how do we manage to find God in a life filled with noise, the demands of other people and relentless daily duties that can consume the self?

For me, the incarnational reality, the sanctity of the everyday comes in the garden.
 Here is where I inhale the words in Lamentations 3:21-23.

"But, this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning:
great is your faithfulness."
