July's Finish

Well sweet friends this week marks July's finish. This month has brought us breathtaking sunsets... delightful daylilies fragrant phlox... abundant squash and zucchini...  plenty of green beans to snap... and delicious Lodi apples for sauce and baking. As July winds down and makes its final finish this week - hoping that all of you are enjoying a lovely end of the month. See you in August - God willing. Hugs Debbie "I have fought the good fight.  I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."  2 Tim. 4:7 (NIV)

Do You ever wonder...

why the sky is blue... certain flowers flourish in the heat... others not so much. Why a butterfly selects the common clover for its nectar... or one type of tree bears apples... and another peaches. Finally what makes this a cat and this a dog? Silly questions for sure.  Yet if we had the answers to these - then perhaps we just might have wisdom to solve the bigger concerns that this life holds. Thank you for letting me share my wondering with you. Have a blessed week. Hugs Debbie "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."  Isaiah 55:8-9

Doubt & Fear

Whenever moments of doubt and fear come (and I am certain most of us have experienced those moments)... I take a walk outdoors and "Look-Up". There one can see the hand of the Creator.  The magnificence of the heavens never fails to bring peace. So if right now your hearts are a bit doubtful and full of fear...take a moment with me and "Look Up". The one who created this beauty is more than able to bring us safely through our worse storms. God Bless - Have a beautiful week and keep "Looking Up". Hugs Debbie "Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him.  "You of little faith, he said, "why did you doubt?"  And when they climbed into the boat the wind died down."  Matt. 14:31-32  


Dear friends hope your July has started off well. Summer is now in full swing at Harmony Hills.  We are in the 90's and the forecast is telling us the heat is to keep us company for the next week or so.  Like this male cardinal I will be spending more time in the shade... enjoying all the visitors that come and go... painting what is in bloom and catching up with a bit of extra baking. Would love to hear what you will be doing in July. Hope you will share.  Have a great week. Hugs Debbie "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not men."  Col.3:23 (NIV)
