July 18, 2011 and July 23, 2011


Last week I was walking up to my apartment and noticed a single daisy right in front. I stood there in awe as I glanced around to see if another had popped up somewhere.  No other daisy was nearby and it took my breath away knowing it was Kathy’s favorite flower. 

I approached it to get a better look.  It was then I noticed a small stem sprouting off it that had not bloomed.  It tugged at my heart when I thought of the significance this beautiful but simple flower had to me.

The next morning the second flower had bloomed.  It was smaller and more delicate than the first.  Throughout the day my thoughts would dwell on the two daisies that proudly displayed themselves in front of my apartment.  I knew the following day the landscapers would come and mow over what meant so much to me.  I decided to take some pictures before I would grudgingly cut them with a pair of scissors.  Carefully I snipped at the bottom of the two flowers so they would not be separated.  I carried them inside and gently laid them down between two paper towels.  On top of the towels I placed a heavy object and thought about the day I would display them in a frame.  This was a gift, a gift from God.

This morning on July 23, 2011       I had my first dream of Kathy since 1971……

  1. Thank you for sharing this observation with us. I have found God uses the smallest of his creations to open my eyes and heart, to stir a memory and restore hope. I pray your dream brought you smiles and joy as you opened your eyes in the morning. I celebrate and rejoice with you. 🙂 You’ve encourged my heart. Lisa


  2. Lisa,
    Thank you for your comment, it’s very sweet.
    In 2005 someone bid 202,000 dollars on a rare orchid, finding those daisies in front of my apartment was priceless.

    I had a dream about Kathy right after she died in 1971 and haven’t had one since. The dream this morning took me by surprise and I’m still processing it. She was beautiful……
    God is definitely in the little things.
    Take care,
