D is for Daisies (and Dogs)

Daisies...i LOVE daisies! they are my favorite flower. so happy! don't get me wrong i love all flowers but this is the best and please do not dye them! so often you find them dyed random unnatural colors and they serve a purpose but the white ones are my by far my favorite!

Again a defination from Happening reguarding daisies:

DAISY: The daisy is the Happening flower. The daisy is a free growing wild flower. It doesn’t seem to be a formal flower like the rose or orchid – it seems to be a happy, frivolous flower, as if God created it just for fun. We think of it as joyful, not serious. We note that the daisy openly shows its joy and beauty without wearing any masks. We also note that when the flower dies it spreads its seeds to create new life and we are reminded of Christ’s death and resurrection to new life. The daisy reminds us of 3 things: First, when we see a field of daisies, we are reminded that the flowers bloom together just like we have bloomed together in sharing Christ’s love at Happening. Second, we look at the flower with petals radiating from the golden center and think of ourselves radiating from the center of God’s grace. Third, we note that the daisy grows wherever God scatters the seeds and we are taught to “Bloom and Grow.”

There is even a Happening song about the daisy (I have the chords if anyone is interested):

May all of your dreams
Bloom like daisies in the sun.
May you always have
Stars in your eyes.
May you not stop running
Until the race is won.
May you always have blue skies.

D is also for Dogs!

i love dogs. i have only had one dog in my life. her name was Kelly. she was a pure bred Irish Setter. she was beautiful! (sorry no digital pics). my parents got her before i was born. evidently kelly was a worrier. mom and dad tell the story that when i was very little i would cry back in my bedroom and before they had gotten up to see what i wanted/needed kelly had already gone back towards my room. the trouble was that we had hard wood floors and she would nearly slide all the way there then come back to them and look at them like, "aren't you going to do anything. the baby is crying!" so funny.

after kelly died we kind of made an unintentional switch to cats. i love cats too but sometimes i wish we still had a dog. i want an animal that will go places with you. cats just aren't really into that! i want a weiner dog! they are so cute and have no idea how small they are! it cracks me up! i can't wait until i get a job and an apartment/house so i can get a dog!

look how cute that is. how could you resist?
