Lilacs & Moonlight

Sweet sweet beauty.........


Last night I was doing my chores……I was headed from the chicken coop towards the barn, and I have to walk past the lilac bush.

Our lilac bush is HUGE, in fact it may be more than one I am not sure. But it’s about ten feet wide and eight feet tall.

As I walked past the smell of it was especially intense and I found myself actually walking into the bush. It was completely by accident, because it was dark out there, but I was not entirely unhappy about it at all. It was glorious! The smell was AMAZING, and the branches seemed to enfold me.

I looked up and the moonlight was hitting some of the spires of flowers and it was so beautiful with the silver light gracing the edges of the flowers. Momentarily it all felt like a bit of heaven, and I thought, “Dear Heavenly Father, you are so INDULGENT. I feel so spoiled that you would take one of my favorite smells and just wrap me in it in the moonlight.”

It was truly one of those “Love Note Moments” from him, something truly personal that he KNOWS my heart, and adores me.


And believe me………….it’s mutual.


Perfect end to a day......

 And I am linking up to A Beach Cottage “Good Life Wednesday”, great befores and afters, flowers, bits and snatches of beauty, and some puppy love! Let’s get back to the good life!
