Day 27: Bouquet
for someone else
All I ask is that we fully enjoy our time together now
because I don't need a bouquet to know you really care
"Stop and Smell the Roses"
(originally posted 9/11/12)
My son took this picture of me one year while we were on vacation...
Then he noticed a small bouquet of flowers sitting on a small table between us,
and asked if I would take a picture holding them because...
"Mom, they match your dress"
(only thing...I was wearing a skirt)
Then he surprised me when he asked for me to stop and smell them
"What does a (then) 9 year old boy know about stopping to smell the roses?"
And there it was...
Isaiah 11:6 "...and a little child shall lead them."
And so I'm encouraging you today to...
hold the ones that you love dearly
thank the Lord above
let a child lead you
and take time to stop and smell the roses!
