“You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life, 
for hurry
is the great enemy of spiritual life in our world today.” 
-Dallas Willard
A more intense blog post has been rattling around in my brain for the past couple of days and I sensed an urgency to get it down — and then the above quote came to mind. 
So today, I will set the other post aside, enjoy God’s handiwork, and be grateful for the beauty He has placed around me. 
Care to join me on my mini-stroll through the yard?

 My grandmother referred to this as Scotch Broom, 
a very old-timey plant.
Because of its velvet-like branches it’s one of Piper’s favorites. 
 
 Cotton candy colored azaleas. 
Lady Banks Rose growing over my Nandina bush. 
One of the most beautiful thornless roses God created.
An old-timey Buckeye Bush (red plumes) and 
a Snowflake Viburnum mingle near the old barn.
What has God placed around you today that you may be missing due to hurry? 
Shout joyfully to God…
how awesome are your works. -Psalm 66:1, 3
