Stopping in the midst of my normal craziness and slipping away to the front porch has become the favorite part of my day. There I can take time to read my current book selection, enjoy the flowers blooming in our front yard, and just relax, even if it's only for 20 minutes. It has been a particularly great year for my flowering plants and sometimes I'm so overwhelmed by the beauty I have to go inside and grab my camera. Here are a couple of shots taken within the past three weeks. It seems the flowers are staging their appearance so as one stops blooming another one starts. You'd have thought I planned it but really, I'm not that good.
Why not take some time yourself this summer, get away, even if it's just for a few minutes and enjoy God's amazing creation?
