It was a hot day yesterday so I took just a quick stroll around the garden. At this time of year there is always freshness and expectation on my mind. Like this prickly cycad in a thorny corner of the garden sending up new fronds.
"Fear not ... be glad and rejoice; for the Lord will do great things." Joel 2:21
Joy that fades not, changes not,
Peace that leaves us never,
Joy and peace we have in Thee
Now and through eternity.
