Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (not flowers but… edition)


As a little kid, whenever I would collect any “flowers” – depending on the time of year – so as to give them to my mom, there would have to be some background stuff, which could be simple sticks, or Pussy Willows, Cattails, Milkweed husks… whatever. All of that might even make up the entire “bouquet”, more like a conglomeration of whatever.

Pictured above is the Pear Tree at the entrance to the property on which the hermitage still stands, at least temporarily. So, I picked these Autumn glories for Jesus’ good mom with all the enthusiasm of a little kid. A legitimate joy upon this earth I should think, that is available to any of us, if only we know how to look for the “flowers.”

Jesus’ good mom is very forgiving, and, methinks, very much likes a well placed clump of grass rather than a much too staid presentation. Kind of like our spiritual lives. What think you?

    Although temporary, it’s the well thought out placement and presentation that we make to our Jesus and his gracious Mother that he receives us for who we are and forgives us for what we have done or failed to do. Thank Jesus for another wonderful day. The sun is rising and it is beautiful.
    Thank You JESUS !!!!

  2. Our Lady is perfect in every way. So if a merely human mom can love the gift for the sake of the love she has for the giver – surely Our Lady loves these ‘flowers’ for the love she bears for you. I am not perfect in any way – but when my child gave me pretty leaves, weeds, whatever – I cherished them.
