Tulips are beginning to appear in fields and yards and stores and homes
like the little pot of tulips placed in the kitchen window.

As their petals gently unfolded in the morning’s light,  their reflection in the kitchen window called “Take our picture!” and a smile came to my face.  It was a wonderful way to begin a new day.  But I almost missed it!

I almost missed that moment of awareness of … something grace-filled
… something beautiful … something holy.  I almost missed it, but didn’t,
thanks to two little tulips reflected in the kitchen window.

Thank-you, Mother Nature, for this gentle reminder to … make time for
… be open to … become available for Spirit to touch my soul in grace-filled, beautiful, joy-filled, awe-inspiring, wonder-filled, holy ways.
