A Surprise

I was taking a picture of my new tulip.

started to clean out around my rosemary when I saw something move I uncovered this

I covered them back and hope I see the mother feed them , but I looked it up and she only feeds in the early morning and twice in the night.

Redbud Tree

Our woods and yards are full of the blooming Redbud Trees at this time of year.
Some years the Dogwood's will bloom at the same time but not this year.

It Is Well

It is well with my soul
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Horatio G. Spafford's classic hymn. Spafford wrote the song while on a ship that was near the spot at sea where his four daughters perished.

Young Again

I wish that I were young again and always full of fight; I'd do the things I used to do and try to get them right.

The city is all a bloom in white and yellow

We have a new Restaurant in Jonesboro, from the picture I bet you can guess what it is.

It was so good!

Spring started March 20 ,but signs may not appear until April. If winter seems as if it will never end, you need a mood boost. Take action! Buy flowers, force bulbs or stick forsythia branches in water as a sign of spring to come. Plant a garden or weekend getaway. Start spring cleaning. Action leads to momentum. This rose was cut back in February.
Now look at it, I don't think it needs momentum or my Blogland friends for they all have tons of momentum.

Good Land

When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land which He has given you.
Be ware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments, His judgments, His statutes which I command you today, lest --when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them; and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and your gold are multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied; when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
Deuteronomy 8: 10-14
Are we about to go in to bondage, because we have forgotten His commandments?

The Word

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away. Help me, Lord, to remember that by thy word the heavens and earth were formed and by thy word we one day will awake in thy likeness.

Rain, rain, precious rain,
That nourishes fruit and flowers. Gives a breath of sweetened air, that gives many pleasant hours.

Rain, rain, refreshing rain, will make the flowers grow; also will make the garden truck put on its annual show.

Rain, rain, God-- given rain, that falls on just and unjust; Praises to His Holy Name! And thankful be we must.
