The WORD on Wednesday: Wisdom, Trust, Peace + Prayer

I wrote something recently to the effect that I wish God had a hotline in heaven,
or perhaps an Internet connection,
because I surely don't have the wisdom of Solomon,
the faith of Abraham,
the heart of David
or the prophetic gift of Isaiah.
Nope--none of those special gifts seem to reside in this woman's being.
And yet, despite my feelings of weakness right now,
God has not left me without help.
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally,
and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering...
James 1:5, 6a KJV
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5,6 NLT
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My Name,
He shall teach you all things,
and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Peace I leave you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you,
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:26-27 KJV
And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee:
for My strength is made perfect in weakness...
II Corinthians 12:9a KJV
God-given wisdom and truth for those who lived in Biblical times--
and for those who live in times such as these.
Wishing you a blessed Wednesday.

Of Alpacas, Lavender, Provence + Tea

Today a friend and I headed to the hills of Helvetia to visit another lavender farm...
this was my second visit there; my friend's first.

And I'll tell you all about it on Monday:)
Until then...
One last day of the Oregon Lavender Festival 
but not the last day to get yourself some lovely lavender:)

More photos to come -- above photo taken at Helvetia Lavender Farm
