Today I got a glimpse of what the Garden of Eden must have been like. No, I wasn’t at Niagara Falls or the Grand Canyon. I was actually in my back yard, tidying up the garden in preparation for winter. Somehow just the simple acts of raking the soil and trimming back overgrown bushes made me feel so connected to God and his creation. There was a cool breeze and as the sweet smell of the moist soil filled my nostrils, I contemplated God’s mighty act in creating us. My glimpse into Eden didn’t end there. As I took my daughter for an afternoon stroll around the neighbourhood, I was struck by the beauty of the Fall colors. The cool breeze was dislodging many fiery red and orange leaves from their summer held positions and as they floated to the ground, I could not help but stand in awe of God’s creation. My daughter’s eyes opened wide with amazement as she experienced her first Fall season ever. It’s been a beautiful day and I’ll be taking a break from MCAT studying today to just reflect on God’s splendor and majesty.
