We arrived back from our wayfaring trip last night, a day earlier than planned. It was a fabulous trip (which you will see over quite a few weeks over at Sweet Wayfaring starting Thursday). After dumping a pile of washing in the machine, lugging things back and forth from the caravan, and sending a few work emails it was a delight to go scamper around the garden this afternoon to see what awaited me. It still very much has it's bare winter look but things are beginning to stir.
I chose violets to honour our home coming because to me they are the sweetest homeliest of flowers.
Psalm 27:4 (New International Version)
One thing I ask of the LORD,
this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
