Okay, I’ll admit, I’m a bit nutty about Lupine. They are just about the most gorgeous flower and we grow them around here in the wild in all different types.
I found this lovely patch of them near our local lake as I was driving around trying to get my baby to sleep and at the same time, looking for something to shoot. I lucked out when I saw this… Actually, I don’t believe it was luck. God sure has a way of sending you little and big blessings each day, and I believe this was a blessing.
The lighting at the moment was amazing as it filtered through the trees. I couldn’t have been happier for the nap time that my baby was demanding and for the sleep that she fell in while I came upon these flowers.
When I was about to turn thirteen, my name sake also my Great Aunt, had planned a really neat birthday surprise for me, a flight back East to Virginia where she lives and then we were to travel down to North Carolina where we would spend the week in a beach house.
This would be the first long flight I would take by myself and the first time I’d be that far from home.
My Mom told me, before I left, that God will give me tiny blessings each day to remember Him and that I better make sure to have my eyes open and ready to see what He had planned.
It could be a Cardinal bird sighting…
Or a small flower.
Be sure you keep your eyes watchful for what God wants to show you. There are tiny blessings everywhere, and I believe I came across a big one today.
