Something Pleasing and Attractive

"Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive,
do not let your attention be arrested by them alone,
but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say:
'O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy,
how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!""

-Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

Just lovely! I didn't get morning glories this year. : ( They are usually a gift I give myself every year. Yours are spectacular! Love, love, love the passage you put with them!

P.S. the word verification I'm about to type in to send this comment into reality is (almost) "exalt"!

Cool! I love seeds/plants that come from friends. Those are the best kind.

Which reminds me -- I still need to dig up some cannas for you.
