“May gratitude to God permeate my entire life.” Charles Spurgeon
These are a few blooms that were outside the Blairquhan Castle in Scotland.
I quickly planted a stargazer lily in shallow dirt three years ago. I didn’t want to throw it out (I received it in a pot), but I never thought it would actually take root and grow annually. Again this year, this beauty rose up from a very neglected side of our garage that spends many months buried in snow. I love their strong fragrance.
“We need to find God, and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness.
God is the friend of silence.
See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence;
see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence…
We need silence to be able to touch souls.”
When picking up flowers to have on various tables at my twins graduation party, I decided to get a variety of a few different blooms. Their party was three weeks ago and I JUST had to retire these happy, pretty daisies this morning! They were the least expensive yet brought joy for much longer than any other flower!
