A Picture of Restoration

I put together this little video for Pam’s birthday and I wanted to share it here with y’all so you could see the transformation that the Israel Prayer Garden has undergone since we acquired the property. It truly is a picture of restoration! Thank God and declare that there is nothing that God can’t restore!

    Truly Beautiful πŸ™‚ Today I prayed that the Lord would let me visit the garden. Thank you. As people walk in the garden with the LORD, I pray He will transform them to become a meeting place with Him for others, fragrant with His Presence, restful in His Peace, comforted by His Love.

    As Walt Disney once said β€œAround here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” Great video and song!
