Bringing Flowers Into The Home
Updated: May 23, 2021
One of my favorite ways to add life to any room in my home is bringing in fresh flowers. Not only does this add life, but it adds color!
I walked into my grocery store on a Thursday morning and saw they had an entire table full of tulips. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers and they had such a large selection now that warmer weather is here! I saw these beautiful peach colored ones and knew I had to bring them home with me.
I work at a local bakery and there’s a garden behind the shop. The larkspur has been overflowing (it’s a lovely sight), and I was able to take some home to arrange with my tulips!
Another wonderful thing about bringing flowers home is that it also allows room for a creative break. I love to put on a cozy playlist and take time to enjoy arranging all of the flowers together into a vase. It’s really quite a therapeutic process!
This is homemaking! Sure, you‘ve got dishes to clean and laundry to fold and all that is included in homemaking. But so is this simple practice of arranging life into a vase and setting it on your table. It’s a yet another way to thank your Creator God for the marvelous things He has made and put your hands to work.
And just think of the providence behind these flowers! I can thank God for the person who packaged the seeds to be bought, for the person who bought them, for the person who grew them, for the person who picked them up and drove the truck to my local grocery store, and for the person who arranged the display table right by the store entrance so that these particular group of 10 tulips would end up in my home for a particular time.
I can thank him for the husband and wife that I work for, who planted the seeds and harvested the larkspur on this particular day so I could arrange them with my tulips.
What a gracious God we serve! There is so much joy and goodness wrapped up in every single bit of our lives. Think on these things next time you pick up a flower bunch at the store or harvest them from your very own garden!
