The past couple of months have been super busy.  I know that everyone is.  I don’t think I’m special. Ha!  Sometimes we get so busy we don’t seem to slow down and smell the roses very often, soooo…..stop for a minute and take a deep breath and smell this beautiful yellow rose.

Today I went with several ladies from our church to Filoli House and Garden. Located thirty miles south of San Francisco on the eastern slope of the Coast Range, the 654-acre Filoli estate contains as its central portion a historic house and sixteen acres of formal garden. The house contains 36,000 square feet of interior floor space on two floors and a mezzanine. There are forty-three rooms and seventeen fireplaces. It was quite a site. The manicured gardens are absolutely beautiful. In the rose garden I took several pictures but this one caught my eye the most and reminded me of this poem. It is so true!

It is only a tiny rosebud,
This flower of God’s design;
But I cannot unfold its petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
This flower God opens so sweetly,
Would in my hands fade and die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of God’s design,
How can I think I have wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?

So I’ll trust in Him for His leading
Each moment of every day.
I will look to Him for His guidance
Each step of the pilgrim way.

The pathway that lies before me,
My Heavenly Father knows.
I’ll trust Him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.

Tulips

Nathan brought me these beautiful tulips the other day. I just had to share them with you. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers. When God paints it is just to beautiful for words!
