When God makes art…

You stop to remember.
All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you. For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations.—Psalm 22:27
[taken with Nikon D40, April, 2013.]
Every year I like to take a few shots of what’s blooming at my house. Here you see a border of pink phlox as the backdrop to some newly potted cosmos, daisies, petunias, begonias, portulaca, and periwinkle.
I’m not a garden fanatic, but it’s amazing how you put these plants in some dirt and watch them grow into delicious foods, shady trees, and beautiful flowers. (Remember the seed in the styrofoam cup when you were little?) We live in a rough and dangerous world; everyone needs a little wonder now and then.
Here’s a post by Dawn about how spring makes us long for heaven.
