Tuesday, May 11, 2004 AD More Flowers One white rose had opened enough by this morning that I could pluck it and stick it in my hair. I will repeat this process with white or pink or red blossoms many mornings over the next few months.
I remember as a little girl in Sunday school and VBS listening to other children pray sentence prayers such as "Thank you God, for trees and flowers" and, with 6- or 7-year-old smug superiority, making my prayers about much more spiritual things. Arrogant little gnostic brat!
Thank you, God, for trees and flowers, and for teaching me that it is right and good and not at all unspiritual to be grateful for them! Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 5/11/2004 11:27:00 AM
