We just spent several days in Orlando, Florida at SeaWorld. Just the four kids and my parents and me. The kids were well-spoiled by Nana and Popo, especially at the Lego Store in Downtown Disney Marketplace. We had such a wonderful time.
The gardens at SeaWorld were immaculate and beautiful.
And now I am home…
where everything is messy and natural in my yard.
I kind of like that. I envy the gorgeous floating petunia baskets and the Shasta daisies of Sea World’s gardens, but I also like the wild look of our land. The pine cones litter the ground, the Southern Red Cedars have pokey and unpruned branches, the Wax Myrtles’ glossy leaves on branches go this way and that……it’s all wild, native, and unpruned. A real mess, if you look at it through that lens. Or a real beauty if you look at it through the lens of a nature lover.
For me, nature is the Great Cathedral. It is the place where I usually talk to God and the place where I feel His presence most often.
