Sunshine, Gardens, and Grace

I was blessed late yesterday afternoon. Tulips that I did not know where going to pop up, suddenly appeared in my garden and will be open this weekend. They seemed to have multiplied ten times over from what disappeared in the flower picking caper. I can't wait to see how beautiful they will be. I had a few others open up today, too. I also planted most of my garden, after filling the bed up with new dirt. I got to dig deep in the soil and planted a lot of bedding plants. It felt great to get out in the dirt and plant new life. The temperatures were in the upper 70's and there were a couple times it actually felt hot, but I didn't complain! I also received a nice gift of a few flowers and a colored picture, along with an apology from the 'flower girl.' She said my flowers are so pretty she just loves them, and her mom told her that doesn't give her a right to pick them without permission. I accepted her gift, and gave her a hug, and we were good again. I had prayed earlier in the day that God would help me to extend grace where needed as I went about my day, and He definitely did help me. I'm grateful that he extends grace to me every moment of my life.

Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.
