The above snap is of some of my beautiful birthday flowers.
Fortunately for me there were so many flowers in the bouquet I received…but rather unfortunately (when will I ever learn!) …I had all to few vases to put them in (I’m NOT complaining that I was sent an abundance of flowers, mind you!).
The upshot of which is that rather stupidly, I tried to put them all in the one vase I could find….well as you may imagine, they were very top heavy (rather like me but we won’t go into that here and now) and perhaps not so unexpectedly, they toppled over when Wonderboy tried to close the curtains behind them yesterday evening.
I’m glad to say that neither my son nor the flowers were damaged and that I did manage to find another vase eventually and what’s better still is that I now have two massive bunches of fresh flowers instead…and oh my, how beautiful the house smells for a change!
I just love the blend of the colours in the pic, don’t you?
Isn’t God wonderful!
He gives us all this beauty to enjoy and I for one, so rarely stop to smell the ‘flowers’ …. to see the beauty in my world…how about you?
Today I am thankful for all the wonderful family and friends I have. I am praying hard for my daughter who has 6 hours of GCSE exams today and for my son for his impending hospital appointment about his abnormal blood results and for his headaches to subside…but amidst the stress and strain of life, there is so very much to be grateful for.
What do you thank God for today?
