fresh flowers

I brought some fresh flowers from my parent's house this weekend and i love having them around...they really do brighten up the place.  They make me think of spring. And this particular flower makes me think of my great grandmother, she always had these when they were blooming!  And they remind me of something I heard in church Sunday, that I keep's a verse actually, so I am going to share it here.
 Psalm 103:1-5
   Praise the Lord, oh my soul; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
   Praise the LOrd, oh my soul, and never forget the good things he does for me. 
  He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.  He ransoms me from death and surrounds me with love and tender mercies.  He fills my life with good things.  My youth renewed like the eagle's! 

I love that. I keep reminding myself, Praise the Lord, oh my soul.  And how he has filled my life with good things.  God is good.  I feel that he doesn't always heal of diseases on earth, though...sometimes I think when he takes someone to heaven, that is their healing.  Like my cousin, Cal...he was "healed" better than any earthly healing could do for him. 

And my surprise in the mail was from Ginger--my friend Holly's sister....I read her blog and LOVE it and get many recipes from it.  She is a vegetable lover, and she and Holly have really influenced my life to be a huge vegetable lover!  So, she has a tatoo that has vegetables in it and a great saying "Eat your vegetables and stay close to things that grow"--so I wanted a picture of it.  I plan to do something neat with b/c then she knew I loved vegetables too,so she sent me this bag!! Picture below after the flowers that make you want to say Praise the Lord, oh my soul. 

this last one is Hello Spring!! When I get home, I want to  open the porch door and have some wine on the porch!  You can hear kids playing and that means it is pretty outside!
