Proud Grandma





A few weeks ago I posted photo's that my 
Granddaughter Anna took.
Yesterday at her high school's Art Show,
she won 3rd place for the one she entered.
As her grandma, of course I think she should
have won 1st place. I love this photo and that
is her Ukulele and she plays it.
Just wanted to exercise my "Grandma Bragging Rights".


Have a Blessed Weekend!

Thankful Thursday






Every day we should stop and count our blessings,
tomorrow isn't promised.


"O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
His mercy endures forever."
Psalm 107:1
NKJV

Have a Blessed Day!

Wonderful Rainy Wednesday




It's raining again today and is suppose to all week and through the weekend.
We need the rain to wash away the pollen and water the trees and plants. Yes, the birds need the water also, but it is dreary out so I used this time to clean all the floors in the house.
Thank you God for your Love and for this rainy day!


My daughter gave me this pretty Hibiscus for Mother's Day. I have never had one before so any info on how to take care of it will be appreciated, do I plant it or can I leave it in this pot?
I'm not sure if it's hardy for my zone 8 or not.



I do love it and would love to leave it here on my porch since my dirt is so hard and I am not able to dig because of my knees.

her husband also, and he praiseth her."

Happy Mother's Day
to all my Blogging Mother's!

Have a Blessed Day!

PLANTS AND GOOD DEEDS




I enjoy planting flowers each Spring
in pots, some small and some larger.
I love color and try to plant as many
as I can care for.

Each morning I go out to water them. 
Taking care of them is a chore but one
that has it's rewards, but some not so 
good.
You see I have a squirrel that lives in a
tree in my yard. I believe it's this pesky 
little animal that digs in my flower pots
and uproots the plants.



It has even eaten the flowers off the moss rose
(the last pot on bottom row).
I have also seen several holes in the ground.
It could be a chipmunk or both that digs up
my plants.


I am reminded of another pest in my life.
As hard as I try to do good and let my love show,
there's this thing that we all have, it's called 
"sin nature". We're all born with it.
It's the things we do or say that "uproots" our
testimony. Unkind words or actions can uproot
all the good we've done.


Today as I water my flowers, I'll be
reminded to water the seeds in my life with words of kindness and actions with good deeds. I will try my best to treat others the way I wish to be treated.


"My little children, let us not love in word
or tongue, but in deed and in truth."
1 John 3:18 
'NKJV'



Thankful for this day,
be blessed!
