Bloomimg Flowers~

When words escape, flowers speak.- Bruce W. Currie

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are
the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
- Marcel Proust

Christianity sees plants and flowers as created by God to show
forth and share with humans the divine goodness, beauty and truth -
the purpose of all Creation. In this flowers may be enjoyed simply
and directly in themselves as showing forth God's goodness and
beauty, or, more fully, as archetypes, signatures, symbols, and
bearers of legends, mirroring the revealed articles of Christian
faith - thereby serving as means for their teaching, recollection,
contemplation and celebration.
- John S. Stokes

Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful;
they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
- Luther Burbank
Memories are forget-me-nots gathered along life's way,
Pressed close to the human heart into a perennial bouquet.
- Clara Smith Reber

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are
the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
- Marcel Proust

The summer flowers are starting to bloom here at my house. I love flowers! I found sometime between school, lunch and laundry to post. I miss blogger when I don't post for a few days. I also miss visiting your blogs but I'll do better once school is out. I do think of you and pray for you.

I hope each of you are enjoying this beautiful day. For those that are sick and facing surgery, I pray God will fill your hearts with his sweet presence and give you that feeling of caring peace that only he can provide, for He is the great Physician. I pray that for those that Satan is trying to destroy their family and home. Keep looking up and keep praying and enjoy the flowers in your life. Have a beautiful day~

Hi Lisa!
I found your blog via Tory at I'm Starting Over. Are you still doing Weight Watchers? I've been on it for so long now that it's become a way of life. That's kind of a good feeling.

I hope you're doing well. Those first few weeks are the toughest part. Are you doing it online or via meetings? Core or Flex? I'm online and flex.

P.S. Your gardens are beautiful! I love when all my perennials start blooming! It's like Christmas in May.
