I have spoken of seeing the Hearts A Bustin' bush on my blog before. I first discovered it beside the trail at Panola Mountain State Park. The seeds are bright orange encased in an equally bright pink seed pod. The bush at Panola Mountain State Park was cut down so I have looked for it on the other trails this Autumn. On Sunday, I found it! Walking at the Monastery with my son, I do fear that I let out such a cry of delight, he must have thought that I had discovered gold!
Did I have a camera with me? NO! Luckily, my son had his phone with him and he was able to get a few photos for me! Thanks, Christopher! (Notice, the few drops on the leaves...this was the same day that I had 17 raindrops, so the Monastery must have gotten about the same!)
See the sign above? Let's get a bit closer...
Don't worry! I didn't go past this sign, I promise!
Richard and I went to the late afternoon/evening service called Vespers. At the altar, the cross has a light shining upon it and from a distance, where the dark meets the light, it looks like a shape of a heart, doesn't it?
Hearts! It is true that I see them very often, in places that are unexpected. What if you were very tired and came home from work and saw a package on your doorstep, and when you opened the package...
It is not only a heart shaped pillow but it has holes at the side...so it is also a hand warmer! Perfect for me and my cold hands! Oh my, I loved the Autumnal note that was sent with this also and the PAPER it was wrapped in! What did I do to deserve such a gift? Why, my friends, not one single thing... but I can tell you that I am very grateful for such a sweet gift! Thanks, Meike!
Remember I told you I let out a cry of delight when I saw the hearts a busting bush? I did the same thing when I opened this package.
