I've been trying to take a couple of walks around my neighborhood each day, for exercise and for prayer. One of my favorite sights lately has been these blooming California poppies. They easily brighten the day, and I hope they brighten yours too. I also came across this quotation which I can think about as I walk - a good reminder of hope, in a difficult season.
