Down a paved but pot-holed road on a mostly natural two acre piece of land lives the “Flower Lady”. She has been taming this land by planting flowers and bushes and trees and bulbs and grasses that would be good to use in flower arrangements. Ground covers have been planted to help keep the moisture in the soil. Fruit trees and grape vines are planted with hope of a harvest, but the birds know exactly when the fruit is ripe. A vegetable garden is found; fenced from deer and sun-screened from the long hot days. This rocky, porous soil fights against taming, yet persistent labor and a dream has worked a memorial to a great, grand lady.

In this place away from the busyness of life you’ll find peace and serenity, birdsong and animal chatter. Here away from the lights of the world, all the stars of the heavens can be seen. Here in this place faith assures us: the God who knows the stars by name and watches each sparrow….cares for me.

Luke 12:6-7
Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings,
and not one of them is forgotten before God?
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Psalms 147:3-5
He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.

Trust God for your day, Today.
