A day off school to spend outside with my children.
Yellow flowers to brighten my yard and my desk.
A nice metaphor for Lent - a promise of new life springing out of winter ground.
Buttercups, more fruit of my grandparents planting labors. Bulb by bulb they built a beautiful retirement place.
Grape hyacinth peeking through the leaves. Lord, help me to stop and see the beauty in all the busyness of my days - especially the days I don't have off from work.
Thank you, Lord, for the idea to start listing my gifts.
