Think on These Things #10 Abundance

 The abundant blooms on my lilac bush this year reminded me of the
abundant blessing the Lord pours into my life.
 The profuse sweet fragrance also lifted my thoughts heavenward

Simple Re-Purposing

When replacing the light over our kitchen table I saved the glass lamp shades because I thought they could be used as pretty pots for flowers.
The shades have been in the garage all winter waiting for springtime to bring warmer weather and cheerful flowers.
I covered the bottom opening by inserting a coffee filter.  The ones I used are little circles from my coffee press and they fit just right.  You could cut a circle from regular filters - I would double up just to be sure the soil remains securely inside.  If you are careful to not over-water, a plastic sandwich bag would work too  and you wouldn't need a saucer for drips. 
Trailing ivy, Pothos or African Violet could be used if you want a houseplant rather that an annual.
 The saucers were made using discarded lids from jars.  I roughed up the surface and painted with acrylic paint giving the lids several coats for complete coverage.  When dried, I applied a coat of gloss clear acrylic sealer.

Here is the new light... and it does have all five light bulbs now :)
