summer gold

Comments Off

Late spring early summer, I had been out in the yard gathering weeds and loose brush into a wheelbarrow. I being too lazy to walk up the road and dump it out into a wooded area it has since that day set overflowing under the burning summer sun, humidity, rain, and a lot of it. Shortly there after, it began to sprout an emerald green carpet of cultivated greenery, a thick stalk sprung out the center.  Today, a wealth of golden Sunflower blooms on that one stalk.

Apparently, the birds at our feeder have a noticeably greener thumb then I do!

Now moved to its new area in the yard until the fall. Nature sure can gift with a surprise at times leaving us with a smile!

Happy summer and be well!

No Other Love Like Mother’s Love

Comments Off

A Mother’s love is something
That no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
And of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
And enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
Or take that love away.
It is patient and forgiving
When all others are forsaking,
And it never falls or falters
Even though the heart is breaking.
It believes beyond believing
When the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
Of the rarest, brightest gems.
It is far beyond defining,
It defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
Like the mysteries of creation.
A many splendored miracle
Man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
Of God’s tender guiding hand.
