In reality, I do not think that there is a perfect day for weeding. Weeding is not a task that I relish. However today, I spent an hour or so removing weeds and saplings from a three foot by ten foot planter in our yard. The planter is in an area surrounded by red lava rocks. There were plenty of weeds and saplings in the lava rock area too.
Even if I do not particularly enjoy the task, the weather was extremely pleasant. The sky was a bright, clear blue. The temperature was seventy-three degrees, and a gentle wind was blowing. All in all a lovely day.
As I removed weeds, which is a rather mindless task, I imagined that one might remove metaphorical weeds from our hearts and souls in a similar fashion. Some of the weeds in the planter are easily extracted roots and all; others take two hands or even a trowel. Some of the more stubborn culprits are seemingly impossible but can be diminished by cutting. Productive life changes may be similar. Some habits are easily abandoned; others take more work. Finally, other unhealthy practices can be diminished, but stopping them may be extremely challenging. Perhaps, I will begin such a process as the weather is perfect.
