Anyone who knows me knows that I find a huge amount of joy in flowers. Not as much in the cut variety as the ones who slowly emerge and surprise you with the burst of color that only they give with patience and slight care. Most people likely have these moments of excitement in March or April when their flowers are popping up. I must wait until June to see the blooms and flush of colors. This is when I begin my daily vigil of walking around my gardens to check on my "babies."
My regrowth is horrendous, but fortunately, I don't see it much! I don't have new clothes, and mine are beginning to get a bit ratty and stained. But I am clothed. I don't have the cutest styles of flats/boots/sandals, but I have shoes. I've had some moments of wanting newer coverings for myself, but then I remember that I have what I NEED. More than I need, actually.
I wonder if my Maker takes His moments to walk around, check His "babies," and watch each day how I grow. I want to delight Him even more than His flowers delight me.
