Letting Wonder Settle In...

I love flowers: I love to draw them, I love to pick them, I love to try to grow them. But most of all I love to embroider them...

There is something so wonderful about a flower; the many colors, their daintiness, or the boldness of them. I love how lots of vintage things can resemble a flower too...

But most of all, I love that flowers remind me of how wonderful the world is we live in. There is nothing better than a vase full of fresh flowers sitting on the kitchen table. Or having the girls bring me a handful of flowers picked from the field. It amazes me that God created something so beautiful for our enjoyment.

Lately, usually when I am driving somewhere, these inspirational verses have been popping into my head. I've actually started carrying a small notebook with me so I can write them down as I think of them. I have been visiting Grace a lot at My Year in Haiku (I have to learn html so I can insert the link but for now if you look at the places I like to visit on the left you will see her link). Her blog is a wealth of inspiration! I've been doing a lot of combining collage, embroidery, and poetry lately and I'm really enjoying it...

I hope everyone has a great week, and remember to look at the flowers (or the sunrise, or the fall leaves...) and see the wonder in all that is around us.
