I find figuring out what to write a bit of a challenge at the moment. There’s been quite a bit going on so focusing can be a challenge and I didn’t want to do ‘today we did this and today we did that’ blog.
So here is a blog saying yesterday we did this and today we did that. (See where we end up from there).
The garden is really coming to life, all of a sudden. The flowers are growing like mad and most are flowering. The blues of the cornflowers are gorgeous. Unfortunately I can’t get a suitable phone picture to actually display their gorgeousness. The part we’ve cultivated is still only a very small part of the whole place really, small steps are very good though..
I have also realised that 6 years ago just before Chris and I got married, I actually knew very little about flowers, especially not cut flowers. As the lady who did our wedding flowers could definitely confirm, I didn’t have a clue! Thankfully she did and actually performed miracles with our flowers, especially as she also had a family to look after at the same time. So Thankyou! Then it was Chris that got into it, I learnt from watching him and this year I’ve grown them and looked after them.
The bees love this cerinthe that we’ve grown and when you’re out in the garden, you can hear a continual buzzing.
‘The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof…” (psalm 24:1)
It all belongs to Him and I pray for you to see Him through the natural world and the outdoors. When you stand outdoors, wherever it is. When you take that deep breath ‘and relax’, when I used to stand on a beach or curbar edge in Derbyshire… I felt and you feel like that because it is God made, just like you are, He is present everywhere, and He created the heavens and the earth. So beautiful.
‘The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork’ (psalm 19:1).
