Good afternoon Friends ~ It is a gray day, lightly raining off and on. We needed the rain, so I’m not complaining. This will do the gardens good.
Here are some flowers from a couple of days ago.
Ceasar Weed ~ an invasive that I’ve got to pull/dig up. They have burs that stick to you or a critter, plus drop seeds and spread. Pretty blooms though.
This is Philippine Violet. Very hardy and easy to grow.
Plumbago and a spent hamelia patens.
‘Kathleen’ ~ I took some cuttings of her this week and hope she will root for me. I love the blooms and and their sweet, delicate scent.
As I was editing the picture below, I noticed the one petal is in the shape of a heart.
Today is 23 months since my dear husband and best friend left this planet to be with God. It was on a Sunday morning, and today is a Sunday too. I was a little depressed earlier, but after working outside for a bit with a little project, I started feeling better. It started to sprinkle and then rain so I came inside.
I’ve had a project in mind for quite sometime now, and just recently found beads to make it. Tear drop beads and this neat little bottle. Two tear drops are sewn behind the bottle and three are falling into it. My first attempt. This one is for a friend. I plan to make up others to put in my Etsy shop. This was the right thing to work on this day.
“You keep track of all my sorrows.
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book.”
Psalm 56:8 (NLT)
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes,
and there will be
no more death or sorrow or crying or pain.
All these things are gone forever."
Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy...
God’s word speaks to my heart. It uplifts my spirit. It encourages me to keep on going, one day at a time.
We don’t know ‘why’ things happen when they do, or the way they do, but we can know, that He loves us more than we can even imagine at this time. All will be known when the time is right.
All we have to do is believe in Him, call on Him, trust Him.
Have a great upcoming week ~ FlowerLady
