I was wondering how to end the month of Colon Cancer Awareness when I received an email with this quote......
"Every time I meet a tree, if I am truly awake, I stand in awe before it. I listen to its voice, a silent sermon moving me to the depths, touching my heart, and stirring up within my soul a yearning to give my all."-Macrina Wiederkehr, A Tree Full of Angels (1988)
This reminded me of my grandfather, probably because of his love of gardening and his land. I think whether he knew it or not this was how he tended his spirit. The author of the quote encourages us to look for spirituality in ordinary everyday things. I feel closest to my grandfather when I spend time in nature....and at the same time it touches my heart.
Being able to blog about Colon Cancer Prevention has also tended my spirit and hopefully, a few of you have been inspired to schedule a colonoscopy.
