Evergreen!

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD. And whose hope is in the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in theContinue reading “Evergreen!”

Get Up!

“For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again, But the wicked shall fall by calamity,” Proverbs 24:16 NKJV If life is a race, there will come a time for all of us when we fail to make the time we strive for, fall short of the distance, or even fall by the waysideContinue reading “Get Up!”

Sun or Shade?

Any gardener’s dilemma often includes where to put a favorite plant. You may have a favorite specimen but not necessarily the ideal place to plant it. I have always been fond of caladiums which thrive in shady environments. When I began my gardening endeavors, I planted about thirty or so bulbs so excited when they finallyContinue reading “Sun or Shade?”

Not So New…

My many hydrangeas have pretty much passed their peak. Most of the flowers are no longer pale and soft. These days, fresh blooms are few. Yet, I welcome their transformation; I’ve learned to appreciate the “not so new.” How is it that the blessings we ask God for and gratefully receive are often taken forContinue reading “Not So New…”

The Winds of Change…

cy·clone:  “storm with very high winds”  Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary A new job. Another new job. A graduation. That about sums up the changes in my household. Sometimes change comes as a soft breeze, unexpected yet refreshing. Then there are times when change pummels us with the fury of a hurricane. Some changes we seek. Others find us. OnContinue reading “The Winds of Change…”

Thirsty…

In need of refreshment? “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:14 NKJV   As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soulContinue reading “Thirsty…”

Out On a Limb!

Out there. That’s how I felt when my boss informed me I needed to leave my store and become manager at another location. This was not something I was seeking. This isn’t even something I wanted. I found myself precariously perched, not quite sure of what I was getting into and rather reluctant to leave my “pharmacyContinue reading “Out On a Limb!”

Sufficient Grace!

Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me.  And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 NKJV Many people are under the notion that when they surrender their lives to God all will be well.Continue reading “Sufficient Grace!”

Light, Camera, Action…

Great light is crucial for most photographers. As an amateur, I regularly seek proper lighting.  Photographers lust after and chase after just the right light well aware of the role it plays for noteworthy images. God’s Light is no different. It is crucial for us. We may not readily recognize it but God’s illumination and revelation are what we crave to reach ourContinue reading “Light, Camera, Action…”
