The Blooming Idiots Anthem

Obviously, we use a yard scene as our masthead on this blog, and our upcoming book is called Blooming Idiots.  We draw examples from our amateur gardening efforts to express how care giving itself is a learn as you go, trial and error process. It goes better if we can laugh at ourselves and if we reach out for help, even (maybe especially) divine help.

In the course of daily prayers a traditional Christian hymn came up.  The last verse might have to be recognized as our Blooming Idiots anthem,

There’s not a plant or flower below, but makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow, by order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be, Thou, God art present there.

By the way, here’s a guy playing the hymn tune on an organ.  You can at least feel a bit churchy if you didn’t make it to church,
