Stand still


Take time to be still and you are sure to find something to delight you.

Reflection
"Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today."  Ex 14:13 (R.V.)

Not resting


We spent two days away out at Whisters Rest again this weekend, certainly not resting as we were attacking the blackberry again.  In the meanwhile the leaves are building up for a big job back home sometime soon.

Reflection:
"When thou liest down thou shalt not be afraid." Proverbs 3:24

Making calls


We allow the neighbours down the back to go too and fro through our garden rather than them having to take the longer route via the road.  As they have teenage daughters a regular parade of young men go up and down our driveway.

Reflection:
"Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"  Rom 10:13

Missed it


I  have shown you Rosellas several times before, that's because they are easy to photograph.  The red breasted robin is quite a different matter.  I've been keeping my eye out for them making their annual visit to the garden and have been thrilled to see one twice but didn't have my camera to the ready on either occasion.

Reflection:
"Behold the fowls of the air; for they sow not, neither do they reap, yet your heavenly father feedeth them." Matt 6:26

Heart's Delight


Out front the leaves are doing their part to delight my heart. 

Reflection:
"Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God believe also in Me."  John 14:1

Colour


The rain has cleared from the sky so it is sunny and chilly, perfect for switching on the long awaited autumn colour out the sunroom window.

Reflection:
"But with me thou shalt be in safe guard." 1 Samuel 22:23

Mother's Day


It's Mothers Day so I popped out to the garden to see if I could find a white flower to honour my Mum and Mother-in-law.  What a surprise to find this camellia which has never flowered before with this pretty white bloom.

Reflection:
"The Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." Joshua 1:2

Home fires


A load of wood dumped under the cherry tree to keep the home fires burning during the cool and damp weather.  We are both feeling a little wonky in the bones right now so they might lie here a while longer.

Reflection:
"Thou remainest .... thou are the same"  Hebrews 1:11:12

Yes, thou remainest ever present Friend.
Tis on thy strength our weakness must depend.

Stepping out


Its been very damp as you can see from the haze of mossy green on the sandstone steps and the leaves being stripped from the trees and glued to the stone by raindrops even before they have a chance to change colour properly.

Reflection:
He shall pluck my feet out the net.   Psalm 25:15

Cycles


As our friends in the northern hemisphere welcome spring I can see the potential of spring even before the autumn leaves are fallen.  I find calm and reassurance in the cycle of the seasons.

Reflection:
"Thou shall ... be lead forth with peace."   Isaiah 55:2

Each day, as our time rolls on
Thus by trusting, watching, praying
We shall find the promised blessing
Daily strength till Jesus come.
