Rich and dark. It has a sweet fragrance.
 It is life supporting. It is water retaining. 

                    I love SOIL

                         Flowers - 
living and fragrant,   colorful and pleasing, cheerful and delightful

                        I love flowers 

Have you ever noticed when we want beautiful flowers we don't concentrate on the flower? We look to the soil. Healthy soil brings healthy flowers. 

The days of our lives are expressed like the flower. 
They are a reflection of our soil or our heart. 

To display a life of beauty, nourish your soul with what is beautiful. 

Fix your thoughts on what is trueand honorableand right

and pureand lovely

and admirable.

Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

We can nourish our hearts with all sorts of sustenance
For today make a point of finding what is lovely. Or maybe what is admirable. Not only does it strengthen us but it inevitably points us back to the Giver of good.
