Zinnias: My Garden-Fillers

They're ordinary. They don't have fragrance. They don't need much care and attention. They can thrive on their own. Oftentimes, I am more proud of my other rare, hard-to-care plants. But really, these Zinnias do the job of keeping my garden beautiful. They fill my garden with flowers even when all other plants fail to bloom.

Do you sometimes feel like you're just a filler in world and that you don't really play an important role? I do! Sometimes, worse. I feel like I can slip away without others noticing my absence; like an extra in a movie where anyone could just fill my part. Irrelevant. Unimportant.

As I did my gardening today, these thorny weeds of lies were pulled out. My zinnias reminded me that I have an important role. I'm part of a big picture. Little my contribution be, I can make this world more beautiful.

For we are God's workmanship, 
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do. 
Ephesians 2:10


Yellow and White Daisies

They are not asters, nor black-eyed Susan ,nor sunflowers.

Until someone can help me id these flowers properly,
I shall call them daisies. 
Aren't they friendly?

~ Daisies are like sunshine to the ground. ~

~ The daisy's for simplicity and unaffected air. ~

Cattleya In Bloom

It's been a while since I last had my cattleya bloom. And I was so delighted to see one blooming again. I have it beautifully hanging outside my window for 2 weeks now. There are 2 buds coming so I knew I'll be enjoying them for few more weeks. Lovely lady in ruffled dress, isn't she?

Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words.  
They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.
