Blue Eyed Bluebonnet







Spring has sprung here in Austin! Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush line even the busiest of highways. It is truly incredible that they pop up on their own and paint our beautiful city each year. I was so excited that Ford would be sitting on his own by the time the wildflowers bloomed and I didn't want to waste any time getting his picture taken. Despite it being a cloudy/bright day, Ford was happy as can be and managed not to pick ANY flowers (since Bluebonnets are the state flower of Texas, they are illegal to pick).

Seeing my boy in a sea of flowers reminds me how small I am. I'm not the only one the Lord has blessed with beautiful flowers, happy babies, and great weather. He designed each one of these Bluebonnets knowing how much joy they'd bring so many. I am reminded of Psalm 139...

"How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be outnumbered. They outnumber the grains of sand" -Psalm 139:17-18

Each and every one of us. His thoughts about each of us outnumber grains of sand, all the Bluebonnets, and Indian Paintbrush. What an incredible and giving God we serve.

Happy Monday friends, I hope these pictures bring you as much joy as this little guy brings me.
