Cheer

Today I am sending a bit of cheer your way...

Spring has arrived at Harmony Hills... the forsythia is blooming...










so are the crocus...


the King Alfred daffodils and Glory of the snow...



blue squill... they volunteer everywhere...













 



and something new for me to grow... Hellebores...






even the Peach tree is budded showing color.













 
Praying you found a bit of cheer here today.

Keep faith friends.

Hugs & Prayers coming your way.

Debbie

The Lord's Prayer


Perhaps those of you reading this post today will join me in "The Lord's Prayer".   I am sure He hears us when we pray.

"Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us today our daily bread.  Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one."   Matt:6:9-13

May God be with each of you and keep you safe in His Love this week.

Hugs

Facing Fear with Faith

"Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God; trust also in me."  John 14:1

I am facing fear with faith...may all of you do so too.

Grace Notes

To those who read music or study a musical instrument you most likely have encountered grace notes.  They are embellishments added to the composition introduced by the composer or performer. 

I like to think of them as the extra trill in a song...not necessary but something special added to a piece.

In other creative pursuits they may be the icing and streusel on an ordinary muffin.


or a soft patch of bright in an otherwise gray sketch.

Sometimes they appear on an early morning walk

Super Moon














Pink Sunrise




















or a cute face at the bird feeder!

Wherever and however - they are the extra joys added to our lives...unmerited, undeserved but sent to us from the "Creator".

Praying all of you will find some "grace notes" along the way this week.

First Day of March

The first day of March brought blue skies...

 Pussy Willows bursting forth...
and loads of sunshine.

Just may be time to put these old boots away.  Hoping so.

May all of you be blessed this first day of March.   Have a great week.

Hugs

Rest

In the business of living it often is a challenge to find time to rest.

We fill our days with to-do lists and rush about seeking new opportunities to inspire and motivate us.

We are busy doing one task while our minds are moving on to the next chore.

It has become a way of life to see how much work one can get done in a given day.


We are so focused on what lies in the future that we miss the wonderful miracles that are happening now.  Perhaps that is why God designed a day of rest. 

Resting is necessary for optimum health...mental and physical.  It restores us and gives us time to take in the daily gifts that are waiting for us to unwrap.

Hope each of you will find some time to rest today.  Have a blessed week.

Hugs


Debbie


..."Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls."  Jeremiah 6:16 b

Three P's

Today I am sharing a painting done in January...














a photo taken on a winter's walk...













and a favorite hymn on prayer - done by Alan Jackson - hope you enjoy!

Have a wonderful week.

"But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father who is unseen.  Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."  Matt. 6:6 (NIV)
