The Bush in the Front Yard

We have a large bush in our front yard, well, perhaps yard is a generous term!  However, the bush constantly produces beautiful white blossoms. Even better, the blossoms smell incredible!  The bush means more to me than just being a bush. When we moved into Cottonwood and started making the house our own, one of the things I wanted was a gardenia bush.  The scent reminded me so strongly of ladies selling gardenias/jasmine blossoms on the subway in Shanghai! We planted two at the house and they were favorites. Sometimes their fragrance would wrap around me and I was back on the ditia standing shoulder-to-shoulder with a hundred other Shanghainese.  I find it to be just like Him to give me this beautiful reminder that He is here with me…just like He was in Shanghai, Arkansas, and here.
