The Beautiful Blossoms
If you live in Texas or know people in Texas, you may know that it is a law that you must take pictures of your kids in the Bluebonnets. I've broken the law for several years as we really didn't have great fields of our beloved state flower. This year, with a cold winter and lots of rain, God has blessed us with fields of waving blue flowers dotted with assorted other beauties.
We stopped at a field (along with a few other families) near my mother-in-law's house on the way home from Easter church service on Sunday. The wind was blowing and the sun was bright, so catching both of our blossoms with open eyes wasn't easy. We did get a few shots, though, and wanted to share these with you.
I cannot remember the fields of flowers having a scent, but WOW, was there ever a sweet smell in the air. Sandi Patty's song "Was it a Morning Like This?" asks about the morning Jesus rose from the grave, "Did the grass sing? Did the earth rejoice to feel You again?" I have to wonder if the bluebonnets were rejoicing with us with their sweet scent that Jesus is Risen!
I'm a Bible believing Christian who loves the Lord, and knows He loves me more than I can fathom. I'm the wife of the smartest technical person I know. I'm a homeschooling mom to two beautiful girls and a "retired" elementary school teacher. Sewing and crafting allow me to create items for others to enjoy. I have Celiac Disease, which means I can't eat wheat, rye or barley. That means a lot of cooking from scratch. My part-time Pampered Chef business works perfectly with those needs! Thank you for stopping by today!
