Flower of the Day: December 26, 2018

Kids and I took a relaxing stroll outside this afternoon: Ellis on stroller smelling her blankie and Elliot walking next to me. Usually there’s a bit of chatter and running around, but today was time to slow down.

The afternoon breeze and seeing the last bit of richly hued leaves were delightful. December is almost over, yet glimpses of autumn are still visible.

Colors remind me of sunset

Flower of the Day: November 25, 2018

“The earth laughs in flowers.” 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Daisies remind me of open fields and sunshine. Their simplicity is full of cheerfulness. 

When Elliot was around 3 years old, our daily morning routine involved walking to Starbucks every morning. Our place was conveniently located right across the street from it, so this gave us time to walk, socialize, hang out, and learn to love the cafe culture. lol. Elliot became enamored with the row of daisies on the sidewalk and he picked one every day. To this day, when he sees a daisy and he’s in a happy mood, he’ll pick one for me and his sister to put in our hair.  

Simple and cheerful

Flower of the day: Ageratum. I call them, fuzzy pom poms.

I am amazed at the variety of flowers around me. Sometimes they look so perfect that I wonder “are they real?”

Each time I come across a new bloom, my faith in a good and awe-inspiring God is reaffirmed. I marvel at the details He showers on small flowers. His humor and creativity abound.

How much more He loves me and cares about the details of my life.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?

Psalm 8:3-4
