Hi Folks ~ Here we are just about into the month of May. This year is zipping right along. It is already starting to feel like summer here and we ‘need’ rain. It’s been predicted for days now and so far zilch. I hand water mostly and use the sprinkler in the morning a couple of times a week if I remember.
This morning I worked in front of the work shop doing some clean up and pulling weeds and cutting down overgrown vines hanging from the tree. I won’t show pics of that because that whole area is still a work in progress as are some other areas on the property. I selectively take pictures.
So, here are some taken from the last few days.
Moonflower ~ which I didn’t get opening, just the bud and then the opened bloom. The scent is delicate and sweet.
Brunsfelsia at the end of its blooming. They only really last a day, opening in the evening and that’s when their scent is the strongest.
Hugs-n-kisses ~ no two blooms are alike that is for sure. This one has a lot more yellow.
Here we have Dancing Lady orchids, Aloysia, and a rose.
This is the White Orchid Tree ~ Bauhinia acuminata ~ this also has a delicate sweet scent.
Yesterday morning I was sent to you-tube from an email, to watch a video and after watching it, I don’t even remember now what it was, I saw one that said Gypsy Christian music. I thought why not, we were familiar with gypsies in Spain, in fact my dear husband bought a bedspread for our bed before I joined him, he got there in Dec ‘69 and I got there the end of Jan ‘70, and had it on our bed and I still have the bedspread today.
Anyway, I couldn’t understand a word of the song, but the photos were self-explanatory. As I was watching the video a few grabbed my heart and here they are. They really spoke to me.
My husband was always in blue jeans and a tee shirt.
Here he is leaving planet earth, heading towards his heavenly home.
Isn’t this great?
And the grand finale.
Needless to say, the tears were flowing, but they were tears of joy.
Then last night I came across another you-tube that caught my eye, just meant for me at the end of the day.
It’s ‘Walk by Faith’ by Jeremy Camp
Then last night I dreamed of my dear husband again and he came up behind me and gently kissed me on the right side of my neck, and told me ‘it is alright’. Very comforting.
I believe that these different things I’m lead to read or listen to or view, and dreams too, are gifts to me from my heavenly Father.
I, even I, am he that comforteth you
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation,
that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble,
by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
Enjoy each day, counting your blessings, learning lessons, and moving forward.
