Gardens Make Me Happy

I cannot tell you how blessed I am by gardens and birds and nature in general. Every morning from my new 3rd-story bedroom window, I hear birds chirping in the pine trees just outside.  They are loud and wake me up, but I'd rather that in the sunrise then silence in the clouds.  Its a beautiful way to wake up. I love flowers.  If I could rest on the petal of a flower and watch nature buzz, I would be a happy lark. A singing lark.  I love summer.  I love knowing that all of it comes to being every year without my help or my worries and remains beautiful in its own time.  I want to trust Jesus that he does this for me too.  Don't you? So many of life's essential lessons are written in the flowers. That's why I keep them on my kitchen table.  image via Laura Elise Crafted
