Today I am sharing an old lovely hymn done by Anne Murray..."Whispering Hope". If you are like me you may need to be in need of  a bit of hope. Wishing everyone a blessed week and may you all find some hope along the way. Hugs Debbie "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful."  Hebrews 10:23 (NIV)   


Here in America tomorrow we will recognize Memorial Day.  For many it will not be possible to gather to celebrate this holiday. Our world has changed and even though many of us are beginning to go out and about - we are finding that life as we knew it is not the same. 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.  We see it in the faces of the nurses and doctors and all those who have risked their lives to save others during this pandemic.  May we honor these special heroes tomorrow as well. 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. God Bless Debbie "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 fri


The weather has finally turned pleasant. The trees seem to have leafed out overnight. The azalea is showing off a bright color -  so are these New Guinea Impatiens. This lovely tulip is one of the last  to bloom in May. Mr. Bunny seems happy to return to his favorite spot  with the violas. The Hummingbirds know the weather has turned pleasant also...they are back. Well that is all for now friends...think I'll just take a rest and enjoy the warmer weather. May you have a pleasant week.  Hugs Debbie "Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good; sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant."  Psalm 135:3


To all the Moms today - wishing you a blessed Mother's Day. Hugs Debbie "When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, "Dear woman, here is your son," and to the disciple, "Here is your mother."  From that time on, this disciple took her into his home."  John 19:26-27 (NIV)

Goodbye April - Hello May

Apple Blossoms I am saying goodbye to April and hello to May. 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. :)!! watercolor sketch It would not be May without a sketch of violets.  They are popping up everywhere now. Today hubby and I celebrated the first of May by joining a couple of sweet friends for a motorcycle ride in the country. It was lovely to see old familiar places along the way... hillside views... and cruise a quaint village . 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 i
