"I never knew gardening could be such a restorative and healing exercise. My mother's garden seemed like a chore — something we had to tend to before we could have fun. 

But now I have my own garden and I find that I can sit for hours gently pulling weeds here, thinning things out there, and delighting in how dirty my little ones get digging in the warmth of the sun.  

As sure as God turns mourning into dancing, this particular chore has been turned into pure delight."

Tell us: what gives you delight?
