Last year we planted a bunch of flowers that seemed to really struggle through the summer.  Imagine my surprise when this year all of the flowers appeared, more beautiful than ever!

Each time I go outside or arrive home I find myself stopping and admiring the beauty of the flowers.  I am in such awe that they are blooming so beautifully with virtually no work performed on my part!  My heart just fills with joy each time I see them. Last Sunday as I was walking out of my house to go to church I noticed this monarch butterfly on a lily.  I just had to stop and take a picture. The beautiful flowers are just one more testimony to me that God loves us.  He gave us beautiful things to fill our hearts with joy and happiness even in the mist of trials and struggles.  I'm grateful!
