  1. The Words are Wonderful, the Pictures are Perfect, and the Blog is Beautiful. I love it.


  2. Whew! Thanks, Dave! Only you and the Lord know the labor of love this took!


  3. Glenda….

    Sigh. I want to walk there with you. I have a special corner in the back of my yard, tucked away behind Sammi’s playhouse and the now-tall cornstalks, where I have a bench, a little table, and some potted flowers. It’s my quiet, special place where I can sit and talk with friends, especially my best Friend, Jesus, and your photos and scripture today make me want to slip away to my corner with you. I can’t wait for the day when we meet.

    Dave – hugs to you. What a good man you are!


    • Becky, you brought tears to my eyes! It is always my prayer and desire to encourage others to draw near to Jesus. How about a little retreat here with me sometime. I might even invite a couple of other heart friends. Becky I would love to meet you and your champion and family! Thanks for sharing! You made my heart smile.


  4. Oh, that would be SO AMAZING! I think the day will come… no, I’m going believe the day will come. I’m going to start praying now.


  5. Beautiful Glenda, both the words and the flowers. Keep up the good work!


  6. Wow, Glenda! How beautiful & thought provoking! Thank you for the time & effort put into this.


  7. The beauty of the gospel in His creation . . . right in your garden! Love this post – I’m pinning it!


  8. Lovely photos, and such powerful words to match. That passage from Isaiah is one of my favorites! Do you know what species of lily is just opening up – it looks like a beauty! Lilies are among my favorites – I have 40+ varieties.


    • Melody,
      Oh my, your lily garden must be an extravaganza! I ‘m sorry, but fail to remember the name of this particular one. Thanks for visiting…always an encouragement


      • Right now all they are is buds of promise – but in a few weeks, they will be breath-taking! I used to know each by name – but as time goes on, my brain skips a notch or two and the names won’t come. Gotta love plant tags! 🙂


  9. I know the feeling! Tags surely do help!
