Lord, Make Me an Instument of Your Peace. (St. Francis of Asissi)

My sisters, brother, and I are making memorial gardens for our sister. 
The elements for mine are coming together,
I bought a St. Francis statue,
one of Marti's favorite saints.
I also made a first time attempt 
to make a twig trellis,
not bad I guess for 
never doing one before. 
Tonight Ken is helping me clear 
the spot it will go, and then
tomorrow I can get
the dirt worked and start
planting and placing plants.
It will be an ongoing project,
but I love the time alone to 
pray, and meditate
while doing this to honor my sister.

I love the start of this memorial. It will be beautiful.
BTW the doily in my photo today is the one I sent you. I was looking through old photos for something on the clothes line and found it.
