Inspired by. . . my garden


I am so thankful for my garden. No matter how my life day is going, when I look out either of my two front windows, I see these happy blossoms and I feel -





That is a GIFT.




I've been feeling pursued lately.

Some would say it's mercy and grace nipping at my heels. It doesn't FEEL like mercy and grace! But then, the author of Footprints in the Sand didn't feel like she was being carried during the hard times of her life either.


"Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life." (Psalm 23:6)


I think it is often that way. God is there, in the most profound ways, when we are least aware of Him, and when we need Him the MOST.




That is a GIFT.

A GIFT I can never repay. But I can {try to} do as He asks. I can {try to} do good, and pursue peace.


"...do good, seek peace, and pursue it." (Psalm 34:14)


Perhaps, if mercy and grace are pursuing me, and I'm pursuing peace. . .



. . . at some point we will all happily collide.
