IMG_0869The day is heavy with clouds.  They press down on my shoulders with their weight much like the secrets in my heart.  I inhale and exhale, shrugging my shoulders, throwing off unwanted burdens.  Clouds, clouds, go away.  Come back another day.

I had not known they were there – the secrets, till I felt their presence knotting up my heart.  They demanded to be heard, to be reckoned with.  I had no choice but to bring them out into the light of my consciousness.

IMG_0925I’m digging in my garden.  With each weed that comes out, the knot is looser, the weight coming off little by little.  I can breathe easier and I can see what I would not before.  Life and gardens are like that.  You can’t see the truth for all the weeds.  You have to weed them out, however painful it is.


IMG_0926In the end,  hard work will pay off and you will be awed by the fruits of your labour, however small they may be.  God is always paying attention.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    I have always found that working in the garden, especially pulling weeds, to be very therapeutic, too! It feels cleansing in a very primal sort of way.
