In Appreciation…….. of the simple pleasures of life…
Zeena Singh For Eastern Mirror Sunday
I believe that life has so much to give if only we cared to give a little thought to the most minuscule of joys (which we’d find so much of) only if we’d stop looking at the looming discomforts and discontents.
So here I am, to share with you the simplest joys in my life as I have experienced some time in my life and those that I take as I face each day, at a time.
They say it best…..
However much of a stern agnostic you might be, I would like to take you to my sojourn.
A fleeting stopover from our busy and hurried world; a slight shift from the daily routined mess of ‘gotto’, ‘have to’ ‘ought to’ ‘musts’ and ‘must nots’.
This sojourn, luxuriant and abounding, holds no trespassing bars. If you but care to step inside, it’s as much yours as it is mine.
Its magnificence is a perennial flourish grasped by even the eyes of a child enroute his sightings. You can too if an instant you spare, to marvel at one of God’s creative wonders!
In splashes of vivid colours and shades they flood fields, meadows and the expanse of an entire countryside.
Flowers! in all of their refreshing splendour give of their brilliant best, irrespective of accolades or applause.
Amidst their leafy bloom, forests are set ablaze with their vibrant flamboyant hues. Without it, no bee, no butterfly nor bird would hover, not a garden be reckoned complete; no child could taste the secrets of its juicy sip, nor have her moment of being crowned queen with daisies of white and yellow.
It’s the flower that spruces a man’s button hole, adorns a woman’s hair, enhances a house inside and out; honours the deceased and welcomes the guest; is muse to an artist’s palette, its lively tints an inspiration to the soul that necessitates colour.
The bride in all her refinery yet needs flowers to accessorize. It’s often used for worship while also served as food to man.
A Flower’s extract’s also used to add to lovliness.
Flower Power! What versatility!
Now that you’re here, pray chew on a Rhododendron, blow into a Dandelion – Make a wish!
Please stay a while, the time’s just right! Remove your cares and apprehensions, your disquiet and unease. Look around you; feast your gaze upon the newness of this creation that springs to life.
Matthew 6: 28 ,29 “ …consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow; they neither toil, neither do they spin:
yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these”.
