Valley of shadows


The winter garden is all about shape and texture.

Reflection:
Psalm 23:4 King James Version (KJV)
"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me."

Cradled


Remember this one, the baby fern is growing up.

Reflection:
Psalm 22:10 The Message (MSG)
When I left the womb you cradled me;
since the moment of birth you’ve been my God.

Happiness



Even though winter is now in full swing and the weather has been cold there is always something to be happy about.  These lovely fragrant jonquils have been in flower for weeks.

Reflection:
Psalm 21:13The Message (MSG)
"Show your strength, God, so no one can miss it.
We are out singing the good news!

Desire


To appreciate this photo you simply must look at this one.   I'm planning for the summer.

Reflection:
Psalm 20:4New International Version (NIV)
"May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed."

Washed


There were three of them enjoying a bath in the morning sun.

Reflection:
Psalm 19:13 The Message (MSG)
"Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh!
Keep me from stupid sins,
from thinking I can take over your work;
Then I can start this day sun-washed,
scrubbed clean of the grime of sin."

Strong


With the weather still warm for winter it's exhilarating to be out and about in the garden getting jobs done.

Reflection:
Psalm 18 The Message (MSG)
"I love you, God—
you make me strong."

Your way


It is quite amazing that I have all the leaves up so early.  I am usually sweeping then in Spring, sometimes Summer.

Reflection:
Psalm 17:4-5 The Message (MSG)
I’m not trying to get my way
in the world’s way.
I’m trying to get your way,
your Word’s way.
I’m staying on your trail;
I’m putting one foot
In front of the other.
I’m not giving up.
