Sunflowers have Arrived

Thankful Thursday in Pictures

Adenium in bud.

Tea Roses

The real owner of our yard. 
The only place to be right now.
Happy to greet the morning.
The little garden.
 Flower promises
Dinner of the future.
A Sunflower in the making.
Hard times come and hard time go. Joy comes in the morning. Life is filled to the brim with lots of good things.
I read this today.
Two women looked through prison bars.
one saw mud, the other saw stars.
I think the difference is for me what direction am I looking.
"The secret is Christ in me, not me in a different set of circumstances." Elisabeth Elliot

Have a wonderful Thursday

"They took away what should have been my eyes.
(But I remembered Milton's Paradise.)

They took away what should have been my ears.
(Beethoven came and wiped away my tears.)

They took away what should have been my tongue.)
(But, I talked with God when I was young)

He would not let them take away my soul,

Possessing that, I still possess the whole.
---Helen Keller


  1. Your pics AND thoughts are lovely today !
    A little jealous of those tomatoes ;)

  2. Hi Kim! Oh, how I wish I could ride my bike over and jump in that pool!
    I love that HK quote at the bottom!
    Aren't we all thinking about Elizabeth Elliot? I love it that my sweet kindred spirit blog friends are mindful of her.

  3. Love your post. Blessings comes in small packages sometimes.
    That clean blue bool looks so very inviting especially after another day of digging deep roots and planting veggies.

    I love to watch Youtube videos of Elisabeth Elliot and she says that suffering is never for nothing. It has something to teach us.

    Have a great rest of the week.

  4. A lovely post, Kim, and that was an enjoyable stroll through your luscious gardens! The quote by Elisabeth Elliot was just what I need to remember
    Have a blessed day.

  5. What a fine list of blessings! I'm jealous of those lovely tomato plants with perfect tomatoes. Is your soil super-sandy?

    Making some laps in the pool would be fun!

    I appreciated the EE and HK quotes SO much. Thank you!

  6. Beauty in the simple things. Love it

  7. Great photos. Does the water in your swimming pool sometimes get too warm in the summertime?

  8. Such wonderful photos and tremendously good words to live by. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Love the photos ... And the inspiring words even more.

  10. Sweet post.
    I love your sweet and grateful outlook on life. You inspire me.
    Love the pics from around your place, and the pool looks so cool and inviting :)

    I always wanted a "cement pond"!

    I see much beauty around your place and in your heart.
