Thoughtful Thursday – Unexpected gifts

Some pretty vines with flowers have popped up in a couple of my planters the past few weeks.  I didn’t plant them, they just kind of arrived – we think perhaps from a patio above the Tree House:

Pretty, aren’t they?

And perfect timing, too, since my petunias had started to look VERY bad recently – and the patio was looking very blah and sad with no pretty flowers dressing it up.

Now,new  bright pink flowers grace the quick-growing vines each day, spreading late summer color in our outdoor spaces.

It cheers me up, just seeing them spreading each day – decorating the view from our windows.

Some of God’s greatest and most powerful gifts to us are the small, unexpected surprises.
