Beautiful photograph, beautiful words from a beautiful soul. Inspiring. Helps project a positive outlook for the rest of my day, knowing that beauty like a flower can flourish when the trees are barren. But there is also beauty in that.

Peace

so beautiful Meri... I have not posted the photos yet, but while I was away on retreat recently there were two large vessels with white orchids... the center of each blossom held a red and yellow heart!!!

I hope that you will consider sharing an offering for this year's 4th annual gratitude word quilt. You can find information about the project and how to participate at the top of my blog. If you’ve already sent something thank you and please forgive my poor memory. The quilt is growing quite expansive and with only first names, I can’t always remember who already shared. Feel free to write in your native language google translate is available on my blog so every one can read and understand one another. Every Blessing~ Laura
