n a cup of violet tea

stars all around us

every good cause

every worthy endeavor
will be tested
time and time again

stars all around us
remind us
look up
shine on!

and give thanks

Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.
to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures forever.
who by his understanding made the heavens,
His love endures forever.
who spread out the earth upon the waters,
His love endures forever.
who made the great lights—
His love endures forever.
the sun to govern the day,
His love endures forever.
the moon and stars to govern the night;
His love endures forever.

Psalm 136:3-9

under the floridian sun

summer makes its way

and flower box projects chase clouds away

Never lose your childish innocence. It is the most important thing.
