When we bought our property, it was a hot, arid summer. Few people would think of daffodils at that time of year. In fact, the lovely woman selling the property apologized for not having fresh flowers out that day. Amazing lady!
Come spring, this is what we found:
And, of course, as promised:
We were shocked at the abundance, marveled at the forethought of people now passed on, who planted and planted and planted for someone else ultimately to enjoy. And they did this just because that’s the way it ought to be done.
I want to think like that. Sometimes I do. I have given and planted untold times for my children, for their future, but I want to be sure I leave behind something someone can point to and say, “Someone was sure thinking about the future!”
I want to amaze someone with abundance.

I like Luke 12:22-34 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”
God gives us an abundance through nature and each other. It is amazing what we can do, as individuals, when we’re open to the concept.
I love the daffodils. Beautiful. Makes me think of the poem 😉
Hello! Thanks for the perfect thoughts! Yes, He gives us all good things out of the ABUNDANCE of His loving provision. How can we do less than try to copy Him in our own small way? I always try to leave a property better than when I arrived. It will be tough if we ever move from this place, though, because it already is so full. Just want always to realize it and be thankful for it.
Oh, thank you! I could not even capture them all! I do like daffodils and love that this place is so full of them. Do they grow where you live?
YOU amaze ME with your abundance…and I love daffodils…
I love them, too. I cannot imagine what it would cost to plant those, these days! I consider it a treasure, a hidden treasure most of the year! 🙂
