It Was All About Love

"And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do...
And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour, And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst, And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, He said, Father, into Thy hands I commend My Spirit: and having said thus, He gave up the ghost. " Luke 23: 33-34a,44-46 KJV
Wishing you a blessed Good Friday

The Word on Wednesday

"For God so loved the world, that He gave only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16,17 KJV


God bless,

Beauty in the Storm

Our springlike weather has temporarily taken a hiatus here in the PNW.
Meterologists are now busy reporting snow in the mountains, hail in places, lots of rain and WIND. It's almost as if we were back in winter again! Well, not really because the temperatures - mostly - are about average for this time of the year and we native (and almost native) Northwesterners are not used to sunny springs anyway:)
Ferns love moisture and we NW'ers love ferns.
This one is putting out new growth--the new leaves are the ones in the middle, all curled up.
This weekend brought us the first blooms of the crabapple for this year.
I LOVE, love, love this color and the tree is filled with more buds,
still to open, in His time.
Also, blooming is the flowering cherry tree near the lower pond.
And last, but certainly not least, is Lake Blessings.
Maybe not so pretty, but certainly very surprising to have a 'lake' so very close to our deck;
it did make getting around today a bit challenging though and I was glad when the water receded a bit!
Well hope you enjoyed the quick garden journey
hope you can find beauty in the midst of your storms too.
