It's Daisy Season

We have a bunch of Giant Daisies right as you walk out our front door, they are in full bloom and are so beautiful! Olivia transplanted several to her herb garden last fall and they look beautiful also. The only thing about them, as with many of the more beautiful flowers, is that their season is so short.

Psalm 103:15-16

As for man, his days are like grass,
he flourishes like a flower of the field;

the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.

Our lives are so very short (although some days feel like an eternity). We never know when God's Wind will blow over us and our days will be over. Will we have been faithful, will Jesus greet us and say, "Well done good and faithful servant"?

So we are truly enjoying our lovely daisies. And they are a reminder of how we too need to be bringing our Lord glory, no matter how many days we live... just as these blooms do. Bring Him glory, sing His praises! Can you believe some people think these came to be by accident?!!!!!

Emma took some to our elderly neighbor yesterday, how can you not SMILE when someone brings you flowers?
