A few days ago, I walked out the front door onto the porch to take an evening walk and was greeted by these beautiful lilies. The sun was filtering through them in a way that took my breath away. It reminded me of how many times the beauty of Lily's life and legacy has taken my breath away.
"We can’t know why the lily has so brief a time to bloom in the warmth of sunlight’s kiss upon its face before it folds into its fragrance and bids the world good night to rest its beauty in a gentler place. But we can know that nothing that is loved is ever lost and no one who has touched a heart can really pass away because some beauty lingers on in each memory of which they’ve been a part.” -Ellen Brenneman
