Mary, Mary Quite Contrary

How does your garden grow?

Albeit small, my flower gardening is bursting with color. Its really a wonderful thing to watch take place ... a little sappy, huh? I like sappy, makes me stop for a moment and take note of the creations which we have been blessed with. I need to do that more often and take a break from the all too busy routines of the day.
God our Father,
yours is the beauty of creation
and the good things you have given us.
Help us to begin this day joyfully in your name
and to spend it in loving service of you and
our fellow man.
May your day be filled with
bursts of color, blessings and joy.


  1. Beautiful thoughts to start the day on!

  2. flowers every color and shape, for us to view
    every day right in our own yards..they are a gift to be sure..stop and smell them...have a beautiful day.

  3. Isn't it wonderful to so appreciate the gift of another day and the simple pleasures that nature gives to us. God bless you and yours as you make your way through another beautiful day. Blessings, Tammy

  4. It's not sappy at all to appreciate the gifts we have all around us...and that simple, amazing beauty that so easily and silently unfolds before us each day....

    we all should try to stop and really 'see' things like this each day....i know I do that too....
