I was just thinking of how I would miss the hydrangea bushes I was lucky to enjoy at the house we rented in South Carolina. Blue hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers, and it makes me feel absolutely rich to have bouquets of hydrangeas throughout my house. Well, one day I was wistfully thinking of them….the NEXT day I looked out the living room window to see a large bush of blue hydrangeas on the edge of the vacant lot across the road!
The first words out of my mouth? “God, I didn’t even ask for these!!!” He must have smiled at my incredulous joy. I still smile when I think about His surprise gift to me.
To treasure: bouquets on the island, the windowsill, and the dresser in our bedroom are a gift.
