A Monastic Garden for a Benedictine Oblate

We have a small garden with a sitting area. I enjoy the garden mostly through our windows, but I always place sitting outside as a "to-do" item high on my list of things to remember in the spring and fall.

It is so hard for me (maybe everyone with a garden) to take the time to just sit. When I do go outside to sit, it is always easier to see that extra work that should be done rather than feel the quiet rest for which the garden was made.

The words in the picture are true, but I struggle to apply them in my own garden.
