Then God said, "Let the land burst forth with every sort of grass and seed-bearing plant. And let there be trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. The seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came." And so it was. The land was filled with seed-bearing plants and trees, and their seeds produced plants and trees of like kind. And God saw that it was good.
In this light, my spirit saw through all things
and into all creatures,
and I recognized God in grass and plants.
-Jacob Boehme (1575-1624)
Plants cry their gratitude for the sun in green joy. ~Astrid Alauda
The kiss of the sun for pardon
The song of the birds for mirth
You are nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
-Dorothy Frances Gurney (1858-1932), "God's Garden"
All these photos were taken at the plant souk yesterday. It just makes me so happy to see so many plants in one place. While I was at school on Thursday, Sheryll sent news that one of the little kittens had died. The vet said it was because of a respiratory infection.
His name was Pickles and he was one of the ginger-colored kittens. I'm not sure which one this in the photo, but they are all truly precious. May your day be filled with simple joys and blessings, Tammy
