Have you ever really looked at the flowers around you?
At the differences in color, texture, fragrance and form?
I feel so blessed when I wonder among the flowers and 'baby' fruit of our gardens.
I am so amazed at the beauty of the Creator's creations!
I am a bit humbled too because I know that I,
nor any other man or woman,
could create the world I see among us.
Yes, we can make different varieties of flowers and fruit...
but God and God alone created the original.
And sometimes delicious too
(as these raspberries will be in the not too far future)
And these blueberries too...
Yes, the blessings around me,
remind me of the One who has blessed me.
And to Him, do I give thanks.
