Be a gardener.

Dig a ditch,
toil and sweat,
and turn the earth upside down
and seek the deepness
and water the plants in time.

Continue this labor
and make sweet floods to run
and noble and abundant fruits
to spring.

Take this food and drink
and carry it to God
as your true worship.

- Julian of Norwich (ca. 1342 – 1416), English mystic named for her position as anchoress living at St. Juilian's church in Norwich, England.
