We went from a chilly wet spring to a blistery hot summer almost overnight... from highs in the 60's to over 100 yesterday depending on where you were! So now the challenge is not to complain about having too much sunshine and heat!!
A PEEK into MY BACKYARD
I spent the cooler morning hours yesterday working outside and thought you might enjoy a peek at some of the God's beauty that's growing out my back door.
This is a newly created bed of necessity... that concrete circle under the bird bath is the lid to to our septic which we had to work around when we poured the new patio last fall. I finally got around to planting it and must say the birds like it already!
I love our little rock wall... great for contrast in texture and moss... and I love moss... in the right places! The daisies are wild but I have to leave a few in the beds every year just for fun.
Love this rose... the deer won't eat and it's gorgeous!
These daylilies are just so stately.
Does this photo not just shout... "Be still and know that I am God"? It does to me... I can hear God calling out... "stop your work and come sit with Me... be quiet and rest... delight not only in the beauty of my creation but delight in my love for you. Know that I am God... your God... sovereign over all creation... and sovereign over your life. You can trust Me... rest in Me... let stillness find its place in your heart and thoughts. I am the One who holds all your tomorrows in the palm of my hand... I am "
You are an awesome God... full of mercy and grace. Remind us to take time today to simply be still and think about just how great You are. Remind us too, that no matter what our circumstances are or what we hear in the news, You are God and You are sovereign and we are Yours. Help us to rest in You. Amen.
