"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."
~Psalm 127:1

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid."  ~Jesus, from John 14: 27

This verse just struck me this morning as I was reading from John 14.  Nothing in this world is like the peace that God can give us!

Longwood 2013- Happy Mother's Day (a little late)

Photos from our Mother's Day (eve) at Longwood Gardens.

Wisteria: such a wonderful smell!!

I think this one if my favorite of the day!


Yum, blue flowers!  Do they match my eyes?

"Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
He made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation."
Psalm 100

Little Miracles

I love flowers that come back every year and need no maintenance at all!  And they are just crazy beautiful, the way God made them!  They are the little miracles of life that we overlook so often.
