Come see, she said. The lavender is in bloom.
How many personal invitations do we receive each day to behold a thing of beauty, but overlook in our rush to do life better?
Yes, there’s work involved in creating such fragrant fields.
It’s an experiment in creation, this planting and harvesting of purple.
Oh, but all that work produces an oil that is the scent of newborns, freshly bathed.
Remember what Shug Avery said in that movie everybody loved when it first came out so long ago now?
It’s still true today.
I think it ticks God off when we walk by the color purple in a field and don’t notice it.
So, today, I’m ever so thankful for fields of purple and friends who invite me to share in the beauty that surrounds them.
What thing of beauty are you thankful for?
