Evan recently found this broken-off hyacinth bud in our yard. It was light green, tightly closed, and looked ‘dead’. He encouraged me to put it into water and thought it might still bloom.
I was doubtful… and totally astonished when after about three days, it did! It made think about the power of water itself—a basic compound— essential for life, and wonder what areas could I experience transformation in by simply ‘watering’. I’m currently reading Soundtracks by Jon Acuff, and working on removing what the author brilliantly refers to as "lying, unhelpful, unkind thoughts" and replacing them with thoughts that are “true, helpful, and kind”. If I'm consistent, in time I’m hoping to see big changes. How about you? Any areas in your life that could use watering?
"Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose."
Proverbs 18:21 MSG
Hi Friends, Happy Spring!
Let the flowers begin!
• What's your favorite flower?
• What's a new thing that's happening in your life?
"Look, the winter is past, and the rains are over and gone.
The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come,
and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air."
Song of Solomon 2:10-12
The picture above was created by me digitally using Photoshop brushes.
One of my favorite scriptures-- I originally designed this back in 2015, but wanted to share it again. Shalom!
“The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring.”– Bernard Williams
It's always a thrill when our yard is in bloom!
This little fella made an appearance, too!
I revived this 2013 photo of cherry blossoms taken in our backyard with some tools in Photoshop to get this!
