Three on Thursday – Signs of Spring


First Signs of Spring at Cozy Acres
along the garden path.

First to be seen along my pathway are the white violets.

  Then these precious bells appear.

Last, but not least,
(really not even the last blooms that reappear)
are the purple violets.
These will continue to bloom long after the white violets and bells are gone.

Just one more, please
The spring bulbs need separating,
but I love them bright and compact.
The little bells grow in a row to the right of this picture.

Linking with Carole for Three on Thursday .

Today’s thought – ‘ . . . and do good, . . .’

Feb 24 catch up 010Three weeks until Spring!

Psalm 37:3
Trust in the Lord, and do good;
so shalt thou dwell in the land,
and verily thou shalt be fed.

Let us bow our souls and say,
“Behold the handmaid of the Lord!”
Let us lift up our hearts and ask,
“Lord, what wouldst thou have me to do?”
Then light from the opened heaven
shall stream on our daily task,
revealing the grains of gold,
where yesterday all seemed dust;
a hand shall sustain us and our daily burden,
so that, smiling at yesterday’s fears, we shall say,
“This is easy, this is light;” every “lion in the way,”
as we come up to it,
shall be seen chained,
and leave open the gates of the Palace Beautiful;
and to us, even to us,
feeble and fluctuating as we are,
ministries shall be assigned,
and through our hands blessings shall be conveyed
in which the spirits of just men made perfect might delight.
ELIZABETH CHARLES.

Doing . . . Today

February 22, Today’s thought – Prayer

Feb 18 13 010 Awake to Spring

Good Morning

“If you cannot find time to pray, ask for forgiveness.
Ask to be cleansed of the sin of having no time to pray …
It could be that Satan is pushing you
into too much work so that you cannot take time to pray.”
– Corrie Ten Boom

“The work of praying is prerequisite
to all other work in the Kingdom of God.
It is by prayer that we couple the powers of heaven
to our helplessness and make the impossible possible.” 
– O. Hallesby

Continue earnestly in prayer,
being vigilant in it with thanksgiving
.” Colossians 4:2

Praying. . . Today ……..Leslie
