Time began in a Garden.. Garden of Eden - Genesis 2:8
SUNDAY aft. at Longwood Gardens
OH, the beauty of Spring.......new life, new creation, all around us, here in PA. The "love of flowers' has followed our family from my grandmother to my mother, to ME (Toni), and to my daughters--Anita & Debbie.
My grandmother Pauline loved 'roses & african violets".........her facial features followed on to my mother, my mother's' facial features followed onto me (Toni), since I am 'now' the older gal in the family.
My grandmother Annie loved 'geraniums, morning glories, & begonias. I've devoloped the 'shape' of all 3 of them since I am older. Now, that I have reached the status of 'senior gal', I am learning to appreciate the beauty of 'older things'. :o) Remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder. :o)

my Mother's old stew pot.....my mother is remembered for her love of flowers, plus many other things.....in our family we lovingly remember her beef stew: there was beef, carrotts, and seashell noodles inside this pot......so we kept this memory of 'my mom & her stew' ALIVE., by making a new use for an old pot....that would have died & vanished without use. So also, GOD takes us human beings, and gives us 'new life in CHRIST', WHEN we shed the OLD SELF & old life, and we also become new creatures in CHRIST. II Corinthians 5:17
May we all learn to see the beauty in old things, including old people. It takes a long time to get OLD, so look with respect at 'old things & old people'. There is 'great beauty' in being OLD, especially when we 'know' the Creator of our Souls !!!
SMILE, BEE HAPPY, BRING JOY to others, celebrate each day, cause This is the Day the Lord hath made !!! PSALMS 118:24
