Of flowers and the little flower
This morning shortly after breakfast I heard the gate open. No one came in, so I assumed someone had gone out. It transpired lachlan had decided to pick this beautiful bunch of pelargoniums for me. He had to go into the front garden because he wanted to pick one of each type.I think he did well,don't you. The colours looked particularly vivid as the day was grey.
Today is the feast day of The Little Flower. Here is something we focused on as our thought for the day:
St. Thérèse taught us her “little way.” To follow this way, we can offer our small sacrifices joyfully to Jesus throughout each day. We can go out of our way to be kind to difficult people. If our feelings are hurt, we can offer this to Jesus, instead of holding a grudge.
