I like nature because I love its Creator.
I enjoy working in the gardens because of what happens in them. It is amazing because it’s God’s hand that makes life possible. My experience of working as a gardening has been great, especially when I am watering the plants. When I am watering the plants, I have a lot of time to think; I think of many things that have happened in my life and I also think about the future.
The truth is that I enjoy every work that a gardener has. I enjoy the entire process. Starting with the preparation of the land and soil to the harvest. I enjoy the whole process because it reminds me of the spiritual life. I think in how God prepares me and how he is always taking care of me as I have to do with the garden plants.
During my time of working in the gardens I have learned many things. I have learned how to be patient for the harvest. I have learned that I need to take care of the deeds if I want them to grow, because if I don’t take care of them they won’t’ grow and I won’t’ get anything out of it!
The most important thing I have learned is that if I want to harvest something [in life], I must plant first.
