Daily Quote: March 28, 2021

For prayer is nothing else than
being on terms of friendship with God.

~ Saint Teresa of Avila (Spanish – Saint / March 28, 1515 – October 4, 1582)

Holidays and Celebrations:


Porte Musings:

Palm Sunday is celebrated by Christians as the day that Christ rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and praises were sung to him by everyone. Palm branches were placed on the path to make the ride easier and songs of Hosannas were sung loudly by the crowds of worshippers. The celebrations would be short lived and within the week Christ would be crucified, only to rise from the dead to finish teaching his disciples before his final ascension to heaven, leaving with a promise that he would return.

The teachings of “love your neighbour as yourself” would linger on as today is also Neighbour Day. A kind gesture or word to celebrate the wonderful neighbours we have.

In a world where everything is in its place and a there is place for everything, weeds remind us of the uncontrollable and wild treasures. After all weeds are just plants growing somewhere we don’t want them to. So celebrate the determination of weeds on Weed Appreciation Day as you clear the garden for the approaching new growing season.

Flowers

I love flowers.  They spread their beauty as they open and look over the world.

Symbols of love, passion, lust, desire, purity, spring, life ……………….

There is a flower for every occasion.

Perfection, imperfection, reflections, textures, colours, depths, lights, bugs, bees, butterflies…….

My favorite annual event is the Strathroy-Caradoc Horticultural Garden Tour and where Gardens are open for viewing and I can take pictures of the beautiful flowers.

Lions

The pair of lions is one of my all time favorites.  They posed perfectly for the camera and the light was perfect.  “Zoo” pictures can be amazing, after all they are a captive client.

Busch Gardens will always remain one of my favorite places.  They have something for everyone.  Playgrounds, rides, shows, gardens and beautiful animals.
