Bursting with Color

Have you ever taken an extended vacation away from home? My husband and I rented a cottage near Myrtle Beach for a month. We are half way through the month and came home to check on our house and run some errands.

When we arrived home, I was greeted by this beautiful camellia that I planted a couple of years ago. This plant is the first to bloom each spring, welcoming the long awaited time of the year where everything begins to grow.

All the other plants and trees are still lifeless, but this one plant with its cascade of color gives me hope that spring will soon arrive with all its glory. Just like this plant with all its bursts of pink, our lives can be the first to bloom, providing hope for others around us.

Be the camellia in your circle of friends and family. Even when others appear lifeless, shine with all the colors that you have in you. Once you shine, take notice of the people you interact with and how they begin to blossom. And before you know it, a bouquet of flowers will be ready for gathering for all to cherish.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
