Shabbat Shalom, All!
It’s pretty nippy here right now, and I managed to get quite a few photos of the snow in the garden before I was too frozen to press the shutter button anymore. I also took some video which will most likely go up on the blog on Monday, so stay tuned! Please enjoy the photos of the beautiful white garden, and enter in to His shabbat rest this evening!
If you’re reading the emailers from Chuck then you know we’ve had an icy few days here in North Texas. I walked through the garden as soon as I arrived this morning, and captured some great photos and video of the beautiful “snow” and ice. (I put snow in quotations because it was mostly just ice disguised as snow, ha!) Please enjoy, and thank God for the beauty in EVERY season, no matter how cold or dreary it may seem! And for those of you in much colder climates than ours, please stay safe and warm!
The first almond tree blossom has appeared in the garden, and there are new blossoms sprouting up everywhere! I am so excited for the coming spring, and wanted to share this video and pictures with you. The verse I found for today is from Jeremiah 1:11-12 (NIV) –
11The word of the Lord came to me: “What do you see, Jeremiah?”
“I see the branch of an almond tree,” I replied.
12The Lord said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.”
Rejoice in the hope and promise that spring brings! Just as the almond tree brings the first promises of spring, you can have faith that His word will bring forth everything He has promised you!
