I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Yea, on the glancing wing of eager birds, the softly pattering feet of furred and gentle beasts. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Not borne on the morning's wings of majesty, but I have set My feet amidst the delicate and bladed wheat. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord.

Here Today Gone Tomorrow

The Earth laughs in flowers.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

This tiny, delicate flower appeared in the gravel in the front garden walkway, along with Lambs Ear that decided to jump from their bed.  I have no idea what it is called, but I am in love with it.  I'm so glad I noticed it and photographed it the day I first saw it because now the flowers are spent and gone.

Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time.
- Georgia O'Keeffe

Dancing Prisms

"My business is not to remake myself, but make the absolute best of what God made." -Robert Browning

Sarah Ban Breathnach believes "what we can see if we look deep within is that the authentic self is the Soul made visible."  I was reading these words when the dancing prisms caught my eye. . . .

Mimosa Flowers

Yesterday, Midsummer's Day, Gabriel, my little white dog, and I took a walk in the yard just before supper.  Lying in the grass were these Mimosa flowers. . . .
