There is a longing for what was and may never quite return.
Yet in considering the veterans of the past we know the abiding loving spirit of those men and women continues to live on in many hearts today. That has not changed.
To all my dear friends in other parts of the world may you too take time to remember those who have worked diligently to keep you safe.
"My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." John 15: 12-13 (NIV)

The trees seem to have leafed out overnight.
so are these New Guinea Impatiens.
Mr. Bunny seems happy to return to his favorite spot with the violas.
May you have a pleasant week.

Like so many of you - am hoping May will bring sunnier days...warmer temperatures...and lots more time outdoors.
Here are some tomatoes and peppers that were started at the beginning of April...planning on transplanting the tomatoes this week to a bigger pot. The peppers are not quite as fast germinating - take a little more babying to get them going. :)!!
Today hubby and I celebrated the first of May by joining a couple of sweet friends for a motorcycle ride in the country.
This week our state begins to slowly open up and ease some restrictions. Am praying that we are able to do this safely. As our Governor reminds us - the virus is still out there and most likely will be for quite some time.
On this first Sunday in May wishing all of you the best and please keep safe.
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Gal. 6:9 (NIV)

As these pink azaleas begin to bloom I find myself a prisoner of hope. They remind me that spring comes each year and therefore they will continue to don their blossoms...
Yes there may be many changes in the world that we are finding hard to accept. Still there is comfort to be found in what remains the same - such as these three signs that spring has arrived.
Keep the fires of Hope burning this week.
"Return to your fortress O prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you." Zechariah 9:12 (niv)

and last but not least the concerns of tomorrow will rob us from the joy and love we have today.
May all of you have a blessed week.
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, no any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)

Tomorrow will be Resurrection Sunday - Easter - A time of Hope - Faith - Love. As Jesus rose from the tomb over two thousand years ago - we too will rise out of the grave of despair and sorrow if we keep in step with the Spirit.
A brighter day is coming - let us hold onto that hope and keep faith and know God's love never fails.
Stay well my dear friends - prayers for each of you are being sent upward.
I will leave you with one of my favorite worship songs - hope you enjoy it as well. Done by Stephen McLeod.
Am taking a wee bit of a vacation from the daily routine. Will be back in July. In the meantime be safe and be blessed. Hugs Debbie...
I hope you will pause with me a moment. Perhaps you will stop and enjoy the morning mist... savor the first ...
The month of August seems to always bring changes. It is a transition time. Summer not quite over and fall not quite here. Like the ga...
