We are all here to bring out the God colors in the world" Matthew

Saturday, June 29, 2013

I believe gardening is a great way to enjoy and show the God colors in the world. The verse can apply to many things, but certainly the beauty of nature is one of them. Whenever I create dish gardens I feel at peace and experience a simple joy at just picking out the plants and flowers I will use, working with the soil, and finally having my creation come together. It never ceases to amaze me the incredible variety of plants. I love to just look at individual flowers and appreciate the beauty of nature in its simplicity. My flowers often give me inspiration for painting small water colors that I make into cards. I also paint on benches, pots, windows, and barrel staves. So fun! Beyond gardening, I often sit on my recliner love seat in my bedroom where I can look out at the trellis my husband built for me with managing plants and beyond that, the state park that backs up to our backyard. I spend many hours here, just being, praying, meditating, reading, journaling. There is something about plants, nature, all of the outdoors that reminds us that we are just a tiny dot in the universe and that we are all part of a greater plan, God's plan. Wherever you reside or travel to, take time to see, hear, and feel the gift of nature! And don't forget about the taste for the abundant food nature and the earth gives us!

Super Nice

I could sit here all day too.
Praise Jehovah for all the wonders he gives us.
Praying for His Kingdom to come. It is going to be so much better than
this system of things.
