Toy Tree

We have a new puppy and the girls have been playing outside a lot with her and many of her toys have been taken outside due to this lovely weather we've been having.
I was amazed at how messy our back yard was getting! I asked the girls to go out and tidy up the toys etc..
When I went back to check , What I once thought was a Lovely Apple tree had become a tree of toys.
If It were only true! We'd be going to the Toy forest instead of the Toy store...
Who knows with All the great Gardeners out there....You'd Likely grow Your Own toy trees as You all are such green thumbs!
Jen I noticed that You have a Lemon Skippit in Your tree....
This Toy tree Theory may not be as Crazy as it Sounds! :)

What a view!

Can You see the view from the former post...through the window?

Notice a row of tall trees? That is were the rainbow came down!

Cheryl You have a fabulous view of Gods Amazing creation were You Live!

No wonder it is inspiring there!

Hope the sun is shining there....and You see more rainbows!

Picture worth 1000 words!

It has been a while since I've posted
to this blog.
It is sometimes hard to come up with what words to say , especially when You don't know how to describe what You are going through.

I Love that pictures can say so much!

Teena I love that You've joined the blog. You are so talented and I Love the photos You take....they really do say "Beauty"!

This Photo is a comforting one to me at this time were I need reminding of Gods Promises!

There is an Awe I feel when seeing rainbows! It brings me back to were I need to focus. It helps me lay down heavy burdens and pick up the Hope of the bright future. The future God Has in store for those he Loves!

I remember back in England when Jon was preaching one night. There was something that he quoted that has stuck with me. It went something like; "To Look within is to be depressed, to look around is to be distressed, But to look up (to God ) is to be Blessed!"

It has been a reminder to me to shift my focus when I am feeling down. There truely is a battle field that goes on in the mind!....But Praise God for He has made a way for us to walk into Freedom and Joy!

This Scripture encouraged me today:

Isaiah 43: 18,19
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not percieve it?
I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland."

The fact is I have allowed myself to focus on the wrong things and therefore do not "percieve" the new things God wants to do. I am asking for Gods New Revalation of His Promises for today and the future....Now I feel Hope rising up!!!!

This Picture is a reminder of Renewed Hope in Gods Promises!

Anyone recognise its location?
