I remember an old story about a man who brought a house with a overgrown garden,
The weeds had long since taken over the garden, and it was a mess,
But slowly the man began to clear the weeds, then when he had clear soil he sowed seeds,
Finally he had made it into a show case garden,
one day the local minister came to visit, and when he saw the beautiful flowers and plants,
He said "well friend you and god have done a wonderful job on this garden".
to which the homeoner replied " well you should have seen the garden when god had it on his own".
