I had to run some errands and took the country route back home. I drove slow taking my time trying to be conscious of breathing. I drove by this orchard of almond trees and pulled my car over. I got out and walked the rows of trees. There was a warm breeze blowing. I just stood there feeling a rush of peace wash over me. The fragrance of spring in the air and the bees busy humming while doing their work drifted all around me. The blossom petals were floating to the ground as the wind picked up blowing through the trees. I felt comforted by acknowledging how God cared with great detail in what may seem small and trivial in the great scheme of things... He is doing that even with my life. It has been so busy with everything that has been going on, I felt as if we were having some one on one time together. I didn't want to leave.
I have often wondered if the amount of blossoms on the trees lets one know what kind of crop they are getting. Some orchards are sparse and faded in color with their blossoms while others are abundant and vibrant with their blossoms. Or does it mean it is a different type of nut or fruit?
I am wishing I could put my bed under this canopy of blossoms.
Is it just me or can you see the rays of light bursting from a sunlit shaped heart?
I am reminded to see the trees in the forest...
I love the shade of pink here in this blossom
