Well, I can tell you that having the fever for a week is no fun, but it was a joy to watch the kiddos spring into action to keep the important things going… like planting mama’s flower pots! It made me feel better to sit in the chair and watch them.
Saturday family work days in the spring… so good, in so many ways! There is so much new life bursting everywhere. It is so good to work out in it, together. And I especially love this garden expansion project!
I love this red tulip! I planted it last fall, next to the old decaying stump. Like most things, this flower will soon wither, and its moment of brilliance will fade. Right now, though, the contrast of life and death is pointing me to remember the unfading worth of Christ and of his undying love and faithfulness for those who put their hope in him. I planted this flower to be a visual expression of my glad hearted thanks to God!
It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night… Ps 92:1-2
