The Quotable


May you have:
A world of wishes at your command.
God and his angels close to hand.
Friends and family their love impart,
and Irish blessings in your heart!

~~Mosaic Monday~~

Posted by Picasa

As I was going through pictures I took when we were on vacation I was struck by the value each offers to our life. Today I think I'd like to contrast the beautifully fragile iris and the sturdy evergreen. Both are fragrant. Both most exquisite in their composition. Yet we only enjoy the iris for a short time in the spring. Because of the shortness of it's stay we mourn its passing, looking forward to it's rebirth next spring. The evergreen, because of its apparent strength we take for granted, yet every spring it puts for lovely "flowers" of its own. Without its special blossoms this bold tree could perish. In its strength there is weakness.

Thanks be to God!


Please visit Mary and The Little Red House. Her pictures are grand and so are the pictures of others!

  1. Hi GrandmaK
    This is a lovely post and so very true. Unfortunately, we do tend to take for granted that which is always with us. The pictures are lovely too. Thanks and God bless you.

  6. It is the smallest of things we must cherish in our gardens because as you said "Because of the shortness of it's stay" great message!
