Carpe Diem (short post)

  • Daylilies have one day to shine.
  • One day to show what they were created to be.
  • One glorious day.

This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

I pray that in this new day, this new week, you can accomplish those things that are most important.  May the Lord guide you with wisdom and insight. May He give you strength and courage. Amen.

  1. Dottie, I love flowers and especially daylillies. I have them all down my driveway and around house.
    The bloom of the daylily may have just one day to shine. My grandmother used to always tell me, “If you want pretty dayllies you have to share them”. The daylillies have great tubler roots. Once they are planted they will grow from year to year. They are very forgiving. You can mow them down (yikes), go weeks without water(survives the drought) drop their seed pods and form more lillies, etc. Daylillies remind me of God’s grace. If we are grounded in God’s love and grace, and share God’s love to others, when we are knocked down, we will survive. We will come back with more beauty and deeper roots. “Bloom where you are planted!”

    Love your writing. Looking forward to lots more.
