Take a Listen Around You! Amazing...

Join with all nature and sing His praises...

Take the time to hear nature praising Him....Be aware that everything that has breath praises Him.  God's breath (His voice) created everything and each one is expressing their praise.

Lyrics to my favorite hymn.....Great is Thy Faithfulness..
Join with all nature in manifold His great faithfulness, mercy and love...

16Do not therefore let what seems good to you be considered an evil thing [by someone else]. [In other words, do not give occasion for others to criticize that which is justifiable for you.]
17[After all] the kingdom of God is not a matter of [getting the] food and drink [one likes], but instead it is righteousness (that state which makes a person acceptable to God) and [heart] peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
18He who serves Christ in this way is acceptable and pleasing to God and is approved by men.
19So let us then definitely aim for and eagerly pursue what makes for harmony and for mutual upbuilding (edification and development) of one another.

9Surely His salvation is near to those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him, [and is ready to be appropriated] that [the manifest presence of God, His] glory may tabernacle and abide in our land.
10Mercy and loving-kindness and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

14 For he is our peace, who made both one, and brake down the middle wall of partition,
15 having abolished in the flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; that he might create in himself of the two one new man, so making peace;
16 and might reconcile them both in one body unto God through the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
17 and he came and preached peace to you that were far off, and peace to them that were nigh:
18 for through him we both have our access in one Spirit unto the Father.
19 So then ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but ye are fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God,
20 being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone;
21 in whom each several building, fitly framed together, groweth into a holy temple in the Lord;
22 in whom ye also are builded together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.

12And I will make your windows and pinnacles of [sparkling] agates or rubies, and your gates of [shining] carbuncles, and all your walls [of your enclosures] of precious stones.
13And all your [spiritual] children shall be disciples [taught by the Lord and obedient to His will], and great shall be the peace and undisturbed composure of your children.

Today was a JOYOUS Day!

Elliott and Mommy traveled today to visit Grandpa.   I had a great visit with Dad! The weather was nearly 70 degrees so I took him outside and walked around the boardwalk in the woods next to the nursing home! He recognized me and his eyes lit up like a Christmas tree! : ) Oh the JOY!! He said, "When I saw you coming, I knew you were one of my girls!" He recognized Elliott too.
Elliott and I had a good trip.  I didn't take any pictures as I had my hands full....but it was one for the memory book in my heart.  Above is a picture taken last week with Elliott and Grandpa!  For those of you who do not know...sometimes my Dad doesn't know me and this was a goooooooooood day...I pray that his memory gets better and better.
Earlier in the day we stopped window shopped at a local Greenhouse...
It smelled wonderful in there!
All God's beauty for us to enjoy!
Let me run, Mommy!! : )
 You can see Elliott had fun driving the cart! : )
My Little Man on a Mission!
Enjoying all the beauty around us!
It was fun as you can see by the pictures...
Check out those cool brightly colored chairs on the wall...
I have my eye on the green one!
I gotta get us some of these cool hats!
And to make the trip complete, we had to go for a ride..
Check out this blog if you missed Elliott's ride at Home here!
Tonight, while going out to pay the rent, I met some friends along the way!
Driving along right here in town...they were undisturbed by my presence..I just rolled the window of the van down and snapped pictures...Apparently, they own the road! : )
Here is your peaceful pic for the day!
