About Me

My photo
I am 45. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. In 2015 we added another beautiful young adult to our house, our niece, and she has been a great joy! Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first.

Lillies of the Valley



I'm having another random moment.

The Lilly of the Valley. Probably one of God's most perfect flowers.

Delicate in it's appearance, yet resilient in it's strength. This little beauty will take over any space it is planted in. In Northern Wisconsin, it flowers in May. Which could be 65 degrees or 35 degrees. It braves any weather and any circumstance to make its presence known.

I happen to have a small bouquet of them on my desk right now. They are cheerfully dangling over the edge of a cheap, red plastic cup, giving off their intoxicating perfume. I braved a very cold rain as I was leaving the house this morning in order to enjoy this little burst of Spring in my cubicle.

How delicate is the human race? Yet, how resilient are we when we are facing a trial? Can we beat off the bad weather and force our way out of the storm to show our beauty and share our intoxicating perfume of triumph? Can we be a burst of joyful Spring in the dowdiness of everyday life? Who can we touch today?

Things to ponder.

LOVE this!!! i want to wear His perfume, you know? i remember reading once that we ought to be so hidden in him that others have to find him in order to see us (it was way more eloquently said but hopefully you get the point). it's so true... we weather a lot in this pitiful fallen world. to only come out victorious (his standards, not ours or the worlds!) is to be sweetly fragranted indeed. great reminder today.
our LoV have loooooong been gone. i think we get them in like feb!! i'd invite you to this big ol' state but already: the humidity.is.stifling. yuck.
hugs!
