What a beautiful and truthful statement! I do go to my garden when the dew is still on the roses and I go midday, at sunset, and when the birds sing their last lullaby. It is where I feel God’s Presence over my life… and surrender it each day to Him.
Every time I hear the phrase ” Nearer my God to Thee” … the historian pops out and immediately I am taken to the scenes from James Cameron’s movie interpretation of the Titanic. As the unsinkable ship sinks into the frigid Atlantic…the strings ( violins) began playing this old hymn written by Sarah Fuller Adams… the lyrics are based on the re-telling of Jacob’s Dream from Genesis 28: 11-12.
And as true gardeners’ sheepishly admit… it is a rare day when a new plant isn’t being introduced to the earlier plants …settled in and glowing.
We have all heard the tried and true statement… ” A Little Goes a Long Way” and that is true of gardens too. Yet with Mother’s Day approaching … I can never think of anything else to give but flowers from my garden… hanging baskets and/ or decorative planters… even bird houses.
I think back on all the plants given me by so many friends… some plants lasted only awhile but oh how beautiful they were while here… as well as some ( now) of my friends!
So until tomorrow… we have all heard the expression ” Fake it til You Make It.” But I had never seen this expression before…
Today is my favorite day-Winnie the Pooh
Since sharing the ” Penny” story with you a few days ago I find myself checking out the pavements to and from businesses, stores… wherever I am. This ” Lincoln” looks like it had a hard life… run over and crushed many times… eerily similar to Lincoln’s Presidency and prior life… at first it looks abstract… but flip it sideways and you can barely catch “In God We Trust” and the top of his head. Good luck!
Love that song…and your entry…
