Funny, how purple cauliflower can literally make you feel happy. I can't help myself, isn't it just Gorgeous?
It is such a perfect contrast to this day of grey overcast skies,and the creeping chill from all the mist............ and it's Monday, too.
I don't know why Monday's seem to be difficult days for me. Many weeks I determine that this WILL be a good Monday, and some Mondays DO go better than others. Still, Mondays have to be my least favorite day of the week.
In less than the very best of humors, I went out to find a veggie for dinner, and instead I found beauty. I can't help loving purple cauliflower. This particular heirloom seed was shared with me last June, - Purple Sicily Cauliflower. I didn't know just how much I would love it. I really planted it just for fun and variety.
But I Do LOVE it, it is so determinedly bright and cheerful in the middle of so much grey and brown.
Right there in the garden I stopped and I thanked God for reminders of Him, reminders of beauty and glory in the most unexpected places and I took a little soul lesson from my purple cauliflower.
I found nourishment for our bodies, and for my spirit, too.
It really is the little things that make up the bulk of our lives. I continue to learn what it means to truly live well and fully, and the answers are, most often, surprising.
