It's blowing a gale outside today, so here's some flowers I picked during the more pleasant weather a few days ago. Going down the back to gather kindling I always find time to dilly dally and pick the violets, then the other day with the fragrance of daphne newly filling the air I picked some of that too. The daffodils came out this week, winter will soon pass.
James 1:2-3New International Version (NIV)
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance."
