God is Faithful!

A verse the Lord gave me this morning to share about my life during giving my testimony to the ladies in my moms ministry:

Deuteronomy 2:7  "For the Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hand.  He knows your walking through this great wilderness.  These forty years the Lord your God has been with you:  you have lacked nothing."

Thank You Jesus for walking through this life with me, enabling me to "walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk]...upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!" Thank You for being my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army!  (Habakkuk 3:19 Amplified Bible)  And thank You for being faithful to me even when I fail to be faithful to You.  (2 Timothy 2:13)

Hope springs Eternal!

In the Spring, when flowers bloom,
it is easy to forget the winter gloom.

First it's just one or two:

Then BANG, they multiply:


It's amazing what a thrill these little lovelies give me!
I know I LOVE flowers all the time,
but seeing them pop out fresh
and beautiful 
makes me

And here are some close-ups!


Praise You, LORD, for creating flowers!
I am amazed at the wondrous variety
You have made throughout our world
for our enjoyment.

Goodbye to February!

Hello March!  I'm so glad to see you.  And so glad that the shortest, yet somehow longest, month is gone.  I'm anxiously awaiting flowers and green and sunshine and warmth.  I know God's grace is just as big in February but I appreciate the ability to 'feel' His grace more deeply in the lush loveliness of Spring!  So I am savoring any evidence I see.  And excitement is welling up from within!
