  1. Beautiful blooms... and yes, we need the Lord's encouragement daily for live rightly, love Him and love others...

    1. I've been amazed at the colors that keep on coming right into these cooler months! What a gift as the clock ticks on and we head into the cold weather!

      Thanks for coming by today, Madge! Have a wonderful week, wherever you are ...


  2. What a spectacular color combination! Those blooms must have gotten a lot of ENCOURAGEMENT (and TLC!) throughout the season... Nice job, Linda!

    Wow, encouragement that's "eternal"... Now _that's_ spectacular. "Everlasting consolation" and "well-founded hope," in the version I use. Knowing that it's ultimately GOD taking care of us -- loving, consoling, encouraging, comforting, strengthening, and directing our hearts -- is so comforting and, it seems, crucial to appreciating His character and our own limits.

    Nice sharing some Word time with you this evening! God bless your week ahead.

  3. Those gorgeous cascading flowers burst forth everywhere in a little oceanside town we visited last month. Ah, how I wish my thumb was green!

    1. Oh yes, we surely are able to bloom as we receive God's love, grace, encouragement, hope, and strength into our souls ... and it can't help but spill over onto the relationships in our lives!


      Again, thanks, Alicia for spending a bit of time here tonight!


Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...
