Planted with Pride

The daffodils & tulips that we
planted with pride
It seems ridiculous that despite having been married for almost 30 years, and having tended 6 different gardens, my husband and I have never planted bulbs before. So it was with great anticipation that we watched our front border, waiting patiently for the first signs of the daffodils that we planted just a few months ago. One week ago our patience was rewarded! Now, every time I look out of my front window, or pull on to my driveway, I smile with pride at my dancing daffodils. They bring me joy.
You and I are planted by God, with pride, and with a purpose. As we grow, He watches us with patience and with great anticipation. And as we bloom, He rejoices. Just like my daffodils, we are bringing Him joy.

  1. Hi Glenys, Love your story on the bulbs, is it really 30 years since we were married and we only just planted bulbs? What should we plant next? Should we go and take a picture of the Goslings?

  2. you should plant a hot tub (in the back yard) because on the seventh day he rested, and so should you! :)

  3. I think there's a sermon in that Steven..
    'God in the Hot Tub.'

  4. ha ha. I think you should plant some tulips next!
