Continuing from the Monday theme if inspired by nature I must confess: I have a thing for cotton.
I know it’s all the rage right now. I got my first bunch of it over a year ago. I loved it then and I love it more now.
My friend gave me a fresh bunch just a few days ago.
When I was at her house picking it up I noticed these amazing pea pods littering the yard by her driveway.
She and her neighbor have these crazy big thorned trees known as Jerusalem Trees.
I can promise if you plant on of these babies, your kids WILL NOT be climbing it. The thorns are massive.
Like a looter I scavenged as many pea pods as I could hold.
And I put them all together in the new trough my friend gave me. It’s amazing.
My shell casing bud vases made an appearance again. I never tire of them.
Friends, go out today and put some nature in your house. At least a bud vase full.
It’ll make you smile. I promise.
Bonus if you can find a Jerusalem Trees for a constant reminder of the crown of thorns Jesus selflessly suffered under.
We are alive and free today because of it…and if the flowers don’t make you smile, that should!
The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. John 19:2
