When Hope Is In Bloom

See how the lilies of the field grow.  They do not labor or spin.  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all of his splendor was dressed like one of these.


If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
{Matthew 6:28-30}


While I'm catching up and resting up from my travels, I thought maybe you'd like to see all these beauty blooms from the RoozenGaarde Display Gardens during the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.  If you haven't had your fill of flowers yet, you can view the whole set of photos here.

And as you soak in all this loveliness, may you remember that *you* are His most glorious masterpiece of all.

    1. @Chris: Thank you, Chris! I need all the encouragement to rest that I can get, so thank you for pushing me in that direction ;o). And a cup of tea (or many cups of tea?) *always* makes the recovery more enjoyable.

    1. @Rachel: Thank you, Dearest, for breathing in here...and reminding me to breathe breathe breathe. I needed that. But then, you knew that, of course. Love you and can't wait to chat soon.
