Hyacinth in a bottle


Photograph by Geneva 2024

This little bottle 
covered in wax 
and wrapped with a tiny ribbon 
had been hiding in 
a cupboard for years.

Today, I remembered it
when I needed a small vase.


It wasn't designed
to be a vase, but I think
it serves that purpose well.

Don't you?

I remember when it was a candle holder
- beeswax drips-
The little black ribbon with a 
-thank you-
from when it was used in a wedding party.


This bottle is like us. Perhaps we were designed 
for one purpose but low and behold;
here we are doing so much more. 

The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, 
but one who has insight draws them out. Proverbs 20:5


PS - Buzz picked our first hyacinth of the season. 
It's beautiful and smells so good.
