True Worship

Be a gardener.
Dig a ditch,
toil and sweat,
and turn the earth upside down
and seek the deepness
and water the plants in time.
Continue this labor
and make sweet floods to run
and noble and abundant fruits
to spring.
Take this food and drink
and carry it to God
as your true worship.

Julian of Norwich

Wonderful post!! I've always thought caring for the Earth and God's creatures as a very honest form of worship. After all, what do we create for the creatures that inhabit our gardens? Sanctuaries!
