The 5th day of gratitude is relating to Nature
Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me with the beauty that we can find all around us. Just look at this beautiful passionflower
This plant is growing wild over our local country park and the small piece 'accidentally' came home with us after a walk 😉 The flower has a religious story behind it and in case you haven't heard the description, I'll pass it on now.
The 10 petals represent Jesus' faithful Apostles
The 5 'anthers' symbolise the five wounds that Jesus suffered
The circle of purple filaments represent the Crown of Thorns
The 3 stigma (hard to see in my photo) represent the three nails holding Jesus to the cross.
PS Daily news. Today is our first day of being in total lockdown - again. It's such a shame and even more so because our area isn't one which has steadily increasing cases. I had a bit of a toddler style 'it's not fair' feeling at first but then read a great quote on a friend's Facebook page which made me think again
We isolate now
So when we gather again
No-one is missing.
Keep safe everyone x
