Ready For The Rain

Sunday Scene

DSC_0028-001

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.  Romans 8:28 NKJV

I’m ready for the rain to fall
I’m ready for your heart to call
My name so loud, it cracks the clouds
And your love comes pouring down
I’m ready for the rain

From the album TRUST, 1995 Phillips Craig & Dean

Dogwood Days Full Bloom

A Dogwood tree will never grow on your lot I was told when we built our new  home a couple of years ago. So, being a little bit contrarian, I rescued a Cherokee Red Dogwood from Lowes Garden Center for $7 after gardening season. You do not plant Dogwoods in the fall and expect them to survive the winter, especially in a high wind zone. But I did. It was pretty scruffy looking last year but this year the nurturing is blooming dividends.

From earlier this spring.

Sunday Scene

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,  not of works, lest anyone should boast.  For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:8-10 NKJV

 

Perseverance – Trout Lilly

Floral Friday – Wildflower

Also called the Fawn Lilly or Dog Toothed Violet, these flowers come from plants rooted and growing for six or more years. Each bulb can be found about a foot or so deep with plenty of company. When you find one, you’ve most stumbled into a whole colony. Its perseverance is our visual treat.
