This morning is another beautiful day. I walk around my small yard and thoroughly enjoy the peace God put there for me to see.
Especially after a night of police chases down our quiet street…twice. Proof that satan is busy all around us and now more than ever we need the rest and peace of Christ. Sarah Young reminds us this morning in her devotional Jesus Calling of the importance of resting in Him. Through the quiet restful time devoted to God we find His peace and love. He wants us to know how very much he loves us and it breaks his heart when we feel unworthy of His love. He said we were worth it and that we should never feel that we are not.
I think we sometimes gets caught up in idea that we need to earn our love from Him but with Him His love is boundless. And He loved us long before we started doing any type of work.
So I encourage you today to take joy in His love for you and let His light warm your soul.
I leave you with some more beauty from my yard to enjoy Cee’sFlower of the Day. Flowers do make me smile and remind me of God’s love for us. And if they are fragrant, that is even better.
And as always, I remind you of the beauty and magic of kindness.
Come join in the the fun and beauty of flowers. Cee has created a fabulous prompt that we can all share the beauty we see.
Even toward the end of summer and a crazy storm, the lilies are still hanging on. It is interesting to me in that depending on where the lilies are growing, some are still going strong. My lilies in front yard are gone but the back ones that get sun all day long are still going. They have been a real testament to the 2020 season with all the craziness going on. Stay true, stay strong and you will survive.
And as always remember the strength and resilience of kindness and carry it wherever you go.
As hard as I try to catch a picture of a hummingbird at my feeder, my phone camera is just too slow. But I do have a variety of flowers in my yard that they visit often, so I given you flowers from a Hummers perspective, in macro. Sorry, it the best I can do for now.
Hope you enjoyed a trip through hummingbird food for my yard, maybe it made you smile. I leave you with encouragement from the scriptures and a reminder of the beauty of nature.
Cee’sFlower of the Day prompt is always a fun one to see the beauty everyone sees and shares. Today we are doing “Other side of the fence” flowers. If you had been following me since spring, you know I put up a fence and then I put concrete blocks randomly in front of it to use as planters. They worked pretty good and some of the flowers are coming through the lattice. They scream…”Don’t fence me in”.
What fun this summer has been. I almost can’t wait until its time to decorate for Christmas. Now that I have a fence, I have a place to put outside lights. Sorry, in my house its never to early to think of Christmas.
So I leave you with the reminder of showing kindness. Kindness is a value of immeasurable worth that leaves a deep void when not used and a ripple effect across the globe when it is used, so use it often. We all could use a little kindness.
