Grow (and bloom) where you're planted - update

So last night I took home some of the flowers we had left over from our events and made an arrangement. I love fresh flowers (especially especially when they're FREE!)  I'm hoping they stay fresh until Sunday for my get-together with my volleyball girls. I also still have my single yellow rose that's opened up nicely - thank you, Eugene, for my Valentine bloom. ;)

I love that our oven is taller than our counter ledge (not), so I'm hoping the fresh flowers will distract the eye a bit from the un-lovely aluminum back of the oven peering through the kitchen. Wondrous thing yesterday = smelling real flowers. Mmm, a little bit of Spring despite the mounds of snow outside my window.

Here's my verse(s) of the day. Pretty fitting for the events of my day tomorrow.

Psalm 62

1 My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

3 How long will you assault a man?
Would all of you throw him down—
this leaning wall, this tottering fence?

4 They fully intend to topple him
from his lofty place;
they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
but in their hearts they curse.

5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
my hope comes from him.

6 He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

7 My salvation and my honor depend on God [a] ;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.

8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.

11 One thing God has spoken,
two things have I heard:
that you, O God, are strong,

12 and that you, O Lord, are loving.
Surely you will reward each person
according to what he has done.
