" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

Oh what a beautiful day !

FINALLY, Spring is springing !   I feared that all of the blooms were going to come and go without us getting to be outside to enjoy any of them !
I photographed them on one of our many rainy days we've had this Spring.

My Rhododendrons are GORGEOUS !   They started blooming a couple of weeks ago, and a hard freeze bit them back, but they are just glorious right now !   There are two of them in the huge pot........I wish that I had bought three to fill it out better, but maybe they'll just really grow and fill it anyway !

This was a few days ago.....I should have gotten a shot of them today.  They looked even better !

Today was a busy one.   I started the day by taking Piper and Lottie-dah to the vet for their annual rabies vaccination.  I got Lottie de-wormed, and started both of them on Comfortis, to hopefully avoid the flea problem I'm afraid this mild past winter will have produced.  Then, I had to turn around and go back to the vet's with Marmalade for her rabies vaccination also.

Once I got home, hubby was eager for me to finally apply the WIPE NEW that he had purchased over 6 months ago for the jeeps black exterior trim.  I followed that with raking twigs from the sideyard, rested awhile with a good book, and then tackled vacuuming out the interior of the jeep. 

I kept getting tired, it's been such a NON-active Winter, but I stayed with it, glad of the work and the warm, sunny day in which to do it.  Praise God !

Kelley, my daughter, has been on near-round-the-clock mommy duty, with 3 kids battling the stomach virus.  I talked to her tonight and everyone is feeling better, and she finally got some rest !   Praise God again........and again !   My sister-in-law, Jean, has been having a horrible week, in such pain that she couldn't even make it down for the funeral this past Monday, but on speaking to her yesterday, she sounded SO MUCH better, and said that she is up again.    God is so good !

  2. Great pictures! Thanks for sharing them in the recent posts! Does it all have a great springy fresh smell too? I can only imagine.

    Spring is not quite here yet...but I did see redbuds starting to bloom this weekend (I have none in my yard mind you... but can see them around town and on travels down I-35 to Dallas last weekend. It's great to see you enjoying the outdoors.
