Their delicate beauty, and pure colors, continue to dress up my décor in one way or
Yesterday, as I sat on my screened-in porch drinking my early morning cup of coffee, this small, simple bouquet of the daisies and pink knock out roses reminded me, once again, of summer's exquisite gifts to me. But, also, I felt the upcoming season in the morning air. I know that
Fall is right around the corner.
Each complex, delicate layer of the tiny pink rosebuds, included in the bouquet,
added to the wonder of it all.
In fact, I went out and picked a few more flowers, placed them in my old
ink well, and sat them by my computer. This morning, the tightly
closed rosebud has opened, and now looks even prettier! I do not have big
gardens, but what I do have, I like to bring inside, so that I can enjoy them inside
and outside. These days, it offers much more contentment and joy, than does the
television news (seen in the background).
A Bigger Picture
"There is something satisfying, rejuvenating, comforting about the seasons. They
remind me that I play one small part in a much bigger picture--that there is a pulse,
a sequence, a journey set into motion by the very hand of God Himself."
~Karen Scalf Linamen
Coming up, faster than we think, will be the next season of it's own unique colors and designs.
And, once again, I will be bringing it's loveliness inside my home, and
using it to dress up my décor.
I am so thankful that God has given us seasons of nature and also,
seasons of life.
Thank you for stopping by today.
