LOVE IN A CRYSTAL VASE

March 4, 2019

When I was a wee one

I always wanted to visit Nana

and bring her flowers.

Seemed to me she never got any.

As I saw things,

she was always alone, too.

I picked beautiful dandylions for her

and she put them in a water glass on her dining table!

I didn’t know it was a water glass

nor did I know the “flowers” were just weeds.

Nana must not have known what they were either

because she kissed me

and said they were beautiful

just like ME!

LOVE AND KISSES!

January 5, 2019

Luther Burbank: “Flowers always make people better,happier, and more helpful: they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.”

I like this quote because it states something I have come to believe but in a different way. I believe that God created flowers solely for the purpose of making us smile, feel warm,and know that we are loved. They represent God’s kisses to me.

SUCCESS!

April 18, 2018

My recent total hip replacement surgery was a success and in a few months, God willing, the other will do likewise!  The Lord showered me with His presence and love the entire time!

I continued writing while in hospital, but low tech – PEN AND NOTEBOOK!  Be blessed!

Thank You Father!

To an impatient gardener

a slowly blooming seed

is a frustration!

But the Master Gardener

stays very near

and nourishes with food,

encouragement,

and love

and He is filled with joy

when the blossom comes to life!

LOVE AND LILIES

The Gift of Faith

A distant rumble

cannot darken my delight

in nature’s beauty

Lily

When I got my first home, knowing nothing of gardening, I was amazed when the neglected yard suddenly come spring had lilies in bloom!  When I relocated some years later filled with hopes and dreams, I also faced many unexpected challenges. I still do. Come spring though, I was again surprised by those same  lilies!  I still know nothing about gardening, but I know my Savior’s redeeming love.  I saw it that day in the lilies He gave to me! The lilies bloomed again today!
