Purple Tulips and God’s Hug | #WordlessWednesday

Spring came again today. The thawing Earth
is like a child who knows her poems by heart.

–Rainer Maria Rilke, from Sonnets to Orpheus
[Translated by David Hills]

We’ve finally had some consistently beautiful weather–sunny skies and breezy, warmer days–so yesterday I took a break from the mental work and took a photo-walk with my photographer friend, Amanda. We “found” purple tulips.

Purple tulips were my sister Lori’s favorite flower, so this experience was truly a hug from God.

Happy First Day of Spring!

    Such a stunning, divine beauty; this purple tulip. I’m drawn to purple a lot these days. And it’s uncanny how your post led me to it again.
    Glad you could reach out to your sister through these beauties. God always watches over us and sprinkles signs on our paths.

    Happy Wednesday!
