There is springtime in my soul today,
For when the Lord is near,
The dove of peace sings in my heart,
The flow'rs of grace appear.
It turns out that Paula's mother's name was Grace, and she loved flowers, and whenever we sing that hymn, Paula thinks of her mom.
Grace's daughter has carried on the tradition. In her spare time, Paula has beautified her little garden spaces with lovely flowers.
I think Grace would smile.
We hope your flowers are also doing well - with apologies to those of you in the cold Northern Hemisphere.
Dave & Paula
