I was wrong a few weeks ago when I said our magnolia had not flowered again this year. It was just being slow.
Psalm 35:19-23New International Version (NIV)
"Do not let those gloat over me
who are my enemies without cause;
do not let those who hate me without reason
maliciously wink the eye.
They do not speak peaceably,
but devise false accusations
against those who live quietly in the land.
They sneer at me and say, “Aha! Aha!
With our own eyes we have seen it.”
Lord, you have seen this; do not be silent.
Do not be far from me, Lord.
Awake, and rise to my defense!
Contend for me, my God and Lord."

We've had guests this weekend. The perfect excuse to fill the vases with flowers from the garden. Such a bounty of beauty.
Psalm 34:12-14 The Message (MSG)
"Who out there has a lust for life?
Can’t wait each day to come upon beauty?
Guard your tongue from profanity,
and no more lying through your teeth.
Turn your back on sin; do something good.
Embrace peace—don’t let it get away!

Ah Spring! And I saw three beautiful birds this week
- I tiny Eastern Yellow Robin flitting among the still bare branches of the maple
- An inky blue-black Satin Bowerbird looking debonair for his lady friend with a white blossom in his beak
- A gentle Brown Cuckoo-Dove taking a drink at the shallow pond.
Psalm 32:1-2 New Living Translation (NLT)
"Oh, what joy for those
whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sin is put out of sight!
Yes, what joy for those
whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt."

Today's photo is a borrowed view looking over the fence into the neighbour's garden. My magnolias have disappointed me by not flowering again this year.
Psalm 29:11New International Version (NIV)
"The Lord gives strength to his people;
the Lord blesses his people with peace."
