This blog is named after my dog, Dino the wonder dog. Other than that, this blog doesn’t have a lot to do with him, except that some days, when I am just too busy or too tired or have a migraine, I let Dino write my blog for me. On days when he has not taken over the computer, I write about my life – the past, the present and the future - my travels far and near and my home. I would love it if you would follow along.
“Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work
or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully
as they are.” Luke 12:27
New Living Translation
Every spring I purchase too
many potted flowers from the greenhouse. I plant these tender buds in various
flower gardens about my house and then pretty much ignore them. My philosophy,
with both flowers and vegetables, is that if they are not tough enough to
overcome the weeds, then – oh, well. Most of the time, the weeds take over.
This spring I started yet
another flowerbed, this time in a huge old copper kettle which had been sitting
empty on my front stoop for many years. My husband dutifully drilled holes in
the bottom of it and filled it with a mix of top soil and potting soil. I
purchased four Gerber daises and five pansies to fill the space. And then, as
usual, ignored them.
Perhaps it was the fresh dirt
and fresh spot, but these little flowers have done quite well. I look off of my
deck each evening and eye the splash of color which they grace me with. On days
when it seems as if God is so far away, all I have to do is look at these
little flowers and know that He is right beside me as always.
