I didn't plant these and I haven't watered them, but there they are - beautiful every day.
Hollyhocks appear around here every spring, too. And sunflowers - and a number of other wild flowers both large and small.
Flowers make me smile - and I bet I am not alone. Otherwise why would there be so many florists selling so many flowers for so many occasions?
But these are free - a gift from God - growing wild all around me. The morning glories have attached themselves tenaciously to the fence. Sometimes they are even stretching up into the sky seeking something to wrap their vines around. And blooming all the while...
They remind me that God's love for me is just that tenacious. Just that persistent. And every bit that beautiful.
He makes me smile!
