After a long bitter winter, spring finally begins to peek into Michigan. In anticipation of the warmer temperature, I drew up my 24-point list of things to do, many of which involve outside activities; garage clean up, light home renovations, etc. I am positive that many of us who are avid gardeners have probably started exercising their favorite hobby.
Indeed, when I stood in the middle of my garden, I could count many things that needed attention. Things such as trimming trees, picking up dead leaves, spraying fertilizer, and the most important of all, grass cutting. That same day I was listening to my favorite radio station, the Catholic Radio, and the commentator was comparing our spirits to a garden. That comment left a deep impression in me, and I started thinking to myself: If we spend so much time, money and energy cleaning up and beautifying our gardens every year, do we lend the same attention and spend the same amount of time and energy cleaning up our hearts and strengthening our faith and spirits?
