First one rose, now a beautiful bouquet. You have to enjoy the peonies while they last. The buds open, only to flop over quickly.
Kind of like parenting. (Not the flop part, hopefully.) Before you know it, you've gone from one season to the next. Savor the moments of beauty and wonder.
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15-16 ESV
