May all your weeds be wildflowers!
It is wildflower time in Texas! At least it is in Grimes County, Texas. For the past two weeks I have been enjoying the wildflowers as I travel home from work. The flowers popped out right as my spring break was winding down. The intensity of color and number of flowers seem to be growing each day.
Bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrushes, Phlox, Blue-eyed Grass and Primrose are just a few of the varieties seen. What a great time to dust off the camera lens and get some fresh subject matter for future paintings or drawings.
I hope all my readers will take a moment to enjoy the wildflowers while you can. I searched for some inspirational thoughts about wildflowers and came across a poem by Kitty Chappell. It is titled, Wildflower. In the poem Kitty asks the Lord to allow her to grow and bloom as a wildflower does. Hope you enjoy reading it. Click on the title.
Lord, please give us a freshness in our life and work as a wildflower in first bloom. Help us to grow as artists in our creativity. Thank you for all the wonderful blessings we receive.
In Christ’s Name,
