In the Pink

In temperate Tennessee, even when the leaves begin to change into their autumn colors and the mums show their fall brilliance . . .

. . . we still have some fading colors from summer flowers. After Ray’s and my walk that pink morning (see blog from yesterday), I walked around the yard and took some photos of pink blossoms.

I have forgotten what you call this one,
but aren’t these translucent petals beautiful?

If God likes all those shades of pink so much that He keeps creating them even into fall, don’t you think He might just think it is okay if you don’t look exactly like all those mothers you would like to emulate and your children don’t look exactly like other children and your husband isn’t quite the same as the men at church you admire and . . . Well, you see where I’m going.

The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart exults,
And with my song I shall thank Him.
Psalm 28:7, NASB

  1. Yes, indeed ~ God created each one of us unique and special. We can take joy in our individuality and celebrate the differences of those around us. As they used to say back in the 70’s (I think), “God didn’t make no junk!” 🙂
    P.S. I’m not sure, but your last flower looks like a hibiscus. We have a lot of them here in Florida.

  2. Thank you for the reminder! Sometimes I wonder why our family seems so different but it’s because God made us that way..a different shade of pink :}
