It’s always fun to go back through and look at all of the photos that have been posted here over the last year. Here are a few of my favorites. What an amazingly beautiful world the Lord has blessed us with!
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. Colossians 3:13
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17
I just love the forget-me-nots in the first photo. They are such delicate little flowers. I don’t know how to describe their color. It’s almost comforting. I was only familiar with the blue until the pink also starting blooming in my garden. I’m not sure which are my favorites.
The second is a photo of a daffodil with a double center. I’m not sure of the name. It came in a variety pack. It is one of the last to bloom in my yard.
Lastly, is a photo of Autumn Joy Sedum. It won’t bloom until the fall. The green leaves add so much texture to the garden. It lives very happily next to some roses.
All of these photos are from my own flower garden.
Feel free to share any of the above memes. Have a beautiful day!
It’s Sunday afternoon and I am sitting on my deck and soaking in some sunshine. I hear the birds making their various mating calls. A gray cat that I don’t recognize pads across the street, unaware that the bell around his neck is alerting all of the birds of his location. There is still a lot of brown from the winter, but a definite haze of green has made its appearance in the last few days. I’m choosing to ignore the weather reports that say we will have snow on Tuesday.
A week or two ago, I wrote about the beauty of breaking through. It is a concept that I can’t get out of my mind. The constant reminder of growth all around me might have something to do with it. And, not surprisingly, I haven’t been too good about reading the signs this year. The daffodils in the sunniest part of my garden are nodding their heads at me right now. The daffodils are blooming by Easter after all!
Isn’t this how our struggles are sometimes? We wait and we ponder and we try to guess when the breakthrough is going to come. When will the freedom come? And then, one day, when we aren’t expecting it, we see that first tiny tip of a bud. And we know that growth and freedom are near.
Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ
