I love the colors and fragrances of Spring.

This year our lilac bush decided it was time to bloom for the first time since it was planted a few years ago. As I sat and enjoyed looking at it and then pulled some weeds around it, its heady fragrance reminded me of my childhood. A lilac bush grew outside my bedroom window. When I pushed the window up, the  smell invaded my room to be treasured a lifetime.

Relatives blessed us this year with two pots of giant Hyacinth bulbs that have pleased us with the smell of heaven and the sight of blooms that appear to have oversized on liquid fertilizer. They certainly would win a blue ribbon at the fair.

What plants take you back to your childhood?

The Master gardener breaths life into plants, and into our lives. He holds His paint palette and brushes our life with color. Sometimes it's a sunshine yellow, and sometimes it's a thundercloud gray.

Since He tells us to "give thanks in every thing" then whatever color He chooses for us for the day is suited for our circumstances.

Are you rejoicing in His plants, fragrances and the colors He's chosen for your life?


Bless you, dear lady! God loves you.
