Glad All Over
I have never liked gladiolus. In fact, I have downright hated them at times. Surprised? Well, the thing is...I am terrified of spiders, and growing up, my family always told me that spiders breed in gladiolus. Or at the least that spiders are more attracted to them than other flowers. So this made me scared of them. But as an adult, I associate them with death, because they seem to be the main flower in funeral arrangements. Now tell me the truth, don't you think of funerals when you see these flowers? Tall stalks of death...Anyway, we have been passing by these a lot, and they are beautiful, so I finally gave in and snapped them. But the story is not the flowers, it is where we found them. We found them in our neighborhood mystery, a place that causes great puzzlement. But that is for tomorrow when I will show you where these are growing!! Perhaps you can even help solve the mystery!
"The ransomed of the Lord will return.
They will enter Zion with singing;
everlasting koy will crown their heads.
Gladness and joy will overtake them,
and sorrow and sighing will flee away."
