happy friday...

hi, dee, ho friends!
just in case you didn't notice...
up top there...
oh, sweet lee me has its own domain!

www.ohsweetleeme.com

paid the ten bucks and made the switch through blogger.
i'm likin' it!
feeling the love from my coworker (the other mrs. lee)...
she gave me this beautiful arrangement of flowers from her
front yard and a jar of hershey's kisses yesterday at work.
it was a very pleasant surprise!
isn't it gorge? 
 i love canning jars and using them for decorating purposes.
thank you bunches mrs. lee
you rock!
oh, those are dogwood flowers btw...
just sayin'...
and i learned something new...
miss k told me that dogwoods symbolize the cross
because the bloom often appear in the shape of a cross.
the faint red stains at each of the four petals represent the blood of Christ
as the nails were driven into the cross through Him.
the green or yellow bloom in the center symbolizes the crown of thorns
placed on the head of Jesus.

most of you probably knew that already but i didn't and
thought that was pretty cool!

The dogwood is more than a tree…it is a representation of life. With every spring we are reminded of what God did for us and given the chance to be reborn and start a new life as “children of God”. (John 3:1)

anyhoot...
not much planned for the weekend around here...
just some more spring cleaning...
hope yours is a little more exciting than mine.

oh and another thing...

Happy weekend, Alely! I never knew that about the dogwood -- my family always had them in the yard but I never knew they had such symbolism. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Becky said...

I do like that arrangement -- so simple with just the jar and rocks, I'll have to remember that one.
