Enlightenment and Resurrection



     The water lily is said to be symbolic of enlightenment and resurrection. It is rooted deep below the surface of a hidden, mysterious realm. It sends out beautiful blooms which reach beyond the water’s surface into the light. Upon nightfall, it will close up but come the morning sun, it will reopen in full glory.

     I recently received this gorgeous water lily plant as a Mother’s Day gift from my husband. We went on a little adventure to find it and I got to choose the one I wanted to bring home to my little pond.

     Its glowing beauty is a reminder of hope for me. I hope you enjoy it, too!

Happy for the Rainy Day



        I'm so thankful for a bit more cool weather before the Summer heat comes along.  Here are some apple blossoms after this morning's rain.
