This is a picture of the nectarine tree, it puts on quite
a show, but it's fruit isn't that great. It is such a nice
tree I just keep it for the blooms.
I can't believe it is already Monday. Today, I read this,
" The call still comes to us: Take up your cross and come with Me.
With You, Lord? Yes, with Me. Will you give me strength and show me the way?
That was my promise---is it My custom to break promises?"
(A Lamp for My Feet, p.118)
"And he who does not take his cross
and follow after Me is not worthy of Me."
Mondays are hard for me to do this, pick up my cross.
I have so much work to do and I fail to see that
whatever it is that I am doing I can use it as a
form of worship. But so often on Mondays my heart
is like a log-jam so filled with grumpiness I miss
Like that beautiful tree blooming away, as I
dash through the day never even looking outside
and smelling the perfect perfume that will be gone
ever so quickly.
So today, as a reminder to my self, I will stop, and
use everything as a way to say Thank you to God
for all of His gifts.
Have a happy Monday!
