The cherry blossoms in Japan are taking their time to bloom, heightening our anticipation for their arrival. Living in Yokohama City, I’m surrounded by a delightful project called “Garden City Yokohama,” where flowers grace every corner, accompanied by the adorable mascot, Garden Bear.

Witnessing the vibrant colors of spring’s emergence fills my heart with joy and anticipation.
One of my favorite pastimes is exploring the plant section at the home improvement center with my husband, dreaming of the greenery we’ll nurture together.
But it’s during quiet walks, surrounded by nature’s beauty, that I feel a profound connection to God.

Matthew 6:28-29“And why do you worry about clothe? See how the flowers of the field grow.They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.”

resonates deeply with me in these moments, reminding me of God’s unwavering love and care, beautifully reflected in the delicate petals and verdant leaves He has so graciously bestowed upon us.
