Garden thoughts

It is truly lovely in my yard right now, with nice grass and many varieties of easy care flowers ( just add water if dry). So I was watering this morning and my shoes got pretty wet. I looked in my closet and found a white pair of sandals by Dr. Sholl that must have been on sale months ago because I remember thinking they were ugly, so they must have been cheap! Lol! Anyhow, my feet were a little tired from all the watering and those shoes felt HEAVENLY on my feet. So as I'm moving the sprinkler, I find myself looking at my feet, wondering if perhaps nail polish might help, and noticing many varicose veins, large and small under thin skin...not a pretty sight. Now here at this very ordinary moment I had what some might call an epiphany, but I prefer simpler words, so I will just say that a very strong and clear thought popped into my mind at this very time, sort of like outta nowhere, but I know where it came from (or I should say Who it came from!) The picture that came into my mind was an amazing glimpse of God's beauty, ( we know from the  Bible that people fell on their faces when beholding visions of the Lord and there is something called the "beauty of holiness") but the major thought in my mind was that God was inside of me, He was absolutely beautiful and how could silly nail polish ever compare with God's Spirit! I don't know what else to say, other than the Bible does say when we believe in Jesus, God's Spirit comes to dwell within us.    Love and prayers, in Jesus, Cynthia
