Chapter 37 – Flower Power – page 202

Hi girls,

I was sick last week. And so was my computer. 😦 I’m sorry I wasn’t able to post anything about last week’s chapter (36, which focussed mainly on babysitting). I hope you still read it and enjoyed it, though! 😀 Actually, it’s funny because today my 16-year-old niece was telling me about a babysitting job she had yesterday and how much she enjoyed reading books to the 8-year-old boy and 2-1/2-year old girl she was looking after.

Have any of you started babysitting yet? How do you like it?

This week’s chapter is about one of my favourite things: flowers! Our amazing, creative God gave us a very special and beautiful gift when He created flowers, didn’t He? 😀

On page 203 of Designer Genes, there’s an activity that asks you to look up and draw 10 types of flowers. I’m going to help you a little bit by showing pictures of those flowers right here… but not in the right order. I haven’t completely hidden clues, though, so you can probably figure out which is which pretty quickly, even if you don’t recognize them at first.

First the names of the flowers: gerbera daisy, iris, tulip, rose, sunflower, daffodil, bird of paradise, lily, snapdragon, hyacinth

Now, the pictures:




Mmmm… I can almost smell them! 😀

Well, for some of us who live in colder climates (like I do, over here in Montreal, Canada), we won’t be seeing flowers outdoors for much longer. If you live somewhere warm, be sure to “stop and smell the roses”, as they say. When you see flowers — whether they’re in someone’s gardens, by the side of the highway, or in a vase somewhere — why not stop for a moment, enjoy its beauty and tell God how much you appreciate His special creation!

And remember that you are an even more precious flower in God’s eyes, growing and blooming in your own, beautiful, special way.

Have a great weekend!
