Happy Labor Day!

“Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope.” Psalms 16:9 NKJV

Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him;” Psalms 37:37 NKJV

“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God [did] from His. Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.” Hebrews 4:9-11

“That You may give him rest from the days of adversity, Until the pit is dug for the wicked.” Psalms 94:13 NKJV   DSC_6391 (4)

“Come to Me, all [you] who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29 NKJV

      1. Thank you very much!

        The majority of flowers/butterfiies/bees are from my own yard/garden with the exception of very few which are from either the Atlanta Botanical Garden (which is probably very evident due to the scope of the flora) or magnolias from my mother’s yard in Florida.

        God uses them all to teach me things. Thanks for taking the time to check them out!

        B Blessed! 🙂

      2. Well, you are lending a new meaning to the term of “flower girl!” I know nothing about plants and such, I just think they are beautiful.

        God teaches us many things in many ways. He’s the Master Teacher, and uses simple things to “school” us on His very complex and eternal thoughts.

        Glad to talk with you, Lilka, and hope to do so again soon.

      3. Glad you enjoyed the flowers! They always put me in a better mood. Yes God knows how to get my attention. The more time I spend outside, the more time I hear from Him. Take care! I leave for vacation tomorrow so I will catch up when I return 🙂
