A little garden in which to walk, and immensity in which to dream. At one’s feet that which can be cultivated and plucked; over head that which one can study and meditate upon: some flowers on earth, and all the stars in the sky.
~ Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
Remembered this blog post of a MORNING GLORY because of the developments with the Stargazer Lily. (: Thought I’d share this again, cos really, seeing the brevity of a flower’s life yet how beautiful they are reminds us how amazing our God is! (:
Beautifully opening your eyes to the day
Kissing the morning dews with the beauty of your face
The sun rises in the East while you shine your best
You know that life’s short and you don’t bloom anything less
When the sun moves west and the day’s about to end
Your colors start to fade, and with grace, slowly you bend
You’ve brought glory to our Creator, you’ve done your part well
Proved that a day is always enough time for one to be his best

Got to work finding the bud that was yesterday is slowly opening up. And today, it’s slowly unfolding its petals. So lovely, and I’m loving the scent more and more.
Thank You so much Lord for this wonderful gift of flowers.
And it also reminds me of Matthew6:28. Look at the lilies of the field. They do not work or spin yet Solomon in a his splendor was not dressed like them.
I’m running barefeet, loving each soft landing. The flowers and grass wave, the leaves rustle, the wind kisses my face. This is such a bliss. Above, a blue so calming. Below, a green so relaxing. I stop to catch my breath, look around and absorb the beauty of this place. Oh, to lie down on this soft grass bed and stare at the birds flying in this vast clear sky. Music. The chirping, the rustling leaves, the water flowing in a brook nearby. It’s so inviting to close your eyes, because the beauty is just indescribable and the music is so comforting.
This is where I run to rest. A short moment where I leave reality and lose myself in a different world. I see this in my mind and I focus on how relaxing it is to be there.
Then I breathe out, open my eyes and I’m back here at work. Looked out the office window, it’s brown…
BROWN?! Why is the outside pale brown?!
