Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Gardening is an Instrument of Grace

Gothamist is a great New York City blog which I follow.  I love all things New York City.  A certain block in Brooklyn has been designated as the "greenest."  Re-posted above is a picture of one of the little gardens on this "green" street.

The sign reads, "Gardening is an instrument of grace."  I could not agree more, but was rather surprised to see this expressed in New York City.

Here's a link to the article:

New York City has many amazing green spaces.  One of the most beautiful is the Clinton community garden which was originally the site of an informal dumping ground with all manner of nastiness including garbage, dead animals, decaying cars, etc.  Neighborhood mothers began the reclamation process and lobbied with the city which led to the beauty seen here today:

This, too, is an instrument of God's from the ashes.

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse

Romans 1:20
