You Know It's a Good Day...


So many reasons to be happy in that one pic.


One final thought...


"God says, 'No, I want that soul to prove its power to live an unprotected life. I want it to be a thing of wonder like this little wintergreen in its pocket of poor soil among the rocks. I often plant My flowers,' He says, 'among rough rocks.'" - Amy Charmichael


(I am aware that this is not wintergreen!)

Let's Bloom! (In whatever soil we find ourselves.)

It's a good day... when Sonja's has a new blog. I know you're looking forward to the 'chillaxin' of summer. Have a good end of the year (btw, I love the Amy Carmichael quote~ I'll have to add it to my collection of quotable quote thingies)
