Sunday Citar/Sunday Snapshot/Simple Things Sunday

There's nothing like the simple pleasure of stopping and smelling the roses at the flower stalls in a street market to brighten the day. I just love the vibrant mix of colours and scents. Flowers make me so happy!

"For He careth for you"
1 Peter 5.7

Dear Lord, it is good to plant
A bulb, dry, brown and bare
And then, in a short time, to find
Enchanting beauty there.

And it is good to know that hearts,
Cast down by grief and pain
Fed by the soil of Thy great love
Can break to flower again.

Those flowers looks beautiful! I always stop and look at the flower shops in my neighborhood, too. I passed along a blog award to you. I hope you accept. :)

Such beautiful flowers! I wish we had a flower market around here to break up all of the monotony of the desert for a bit. :D
