What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Blooming Beauties

Now that the warm weather has arrived, my patio is looking just a *bit* different. Flowers are starting to poke their heads out of their leafy coats and the sun is doubling the size of their leaves. It is a happy time to be outside, enjoying the color God has given us.

I wanted to share an 'up to date' view of my little potted flower gardens. It makes me sad to see them all in pots, knowing that if we had our own land, they could dig their little roots deep within the earth~and we would do the same. At this place in our lives though, I am thankful that the Lord has given us a nice home even temporarily and that He has blessed us with BEAUTY to brighten our days.

Flowers are not just to be planted around the mansions, but also the cottages after all.
