I use window boxes as containers to display flowers on my kitchen window sill.
No this photograph was not taken in Greece, Italy, Spain or other sunny destination.
The colourful daisies open up in the brilliant sunshine. If it is cold or wet they don’t show their faces and stay tightly closed.
We are a bit like these flowers when someone loves us. We open up when someone is warm and encouraging to us and we feel safe with them.
Jesus is described in Malachi as the Sun of Righteousness who rises with healing in his wings.
God is love and there are no shadows with him. His love causes us to open up like the flowers and become beautiful like my display of flowers.
It was taken in my back yard, where I live in Northern Ireland.
Ireland is known for its forty shades of green as mentioned in the song written by the Man in Black Johnny Cash after his first visit to here.
We have a high rainfall in Ireland. But where I live at the moment is in the shadow of the Mourne Mountains so the clouds have dropped all their rain before they get this far. We have many sunny days.
The bright display is cheery on my window sill and will keep on blooming till autumn.
Then I will empty and store my containers till next spring.
