Time to Smell the Flowers Again
I've loved bleeding hearts and lilacs since I was a child. I had an aunt with whom I spent many a sweet hour as she showed me her garden of glorious flowers. I often think of those walks at this time of year. You see, my aunt had just lost her seven year-old daughter unexpectedly and we were all reeling from that terrible loss. My aunt explained to me that the bleeding hearts were God's way of showing us that He knows our hearts are breaking but He is there to help us heal.
