flowers for the day, enjoy
The Holland sea of flowers in full bloom. Over 30 million tulips.
There Is A Flower That Has Petals That Look Like Little Hummingbirds
Awww, usually I would go visit the tulip fields (here in the Netherlands), but staying home this year as well
see! I thought someone was close by, I would love to go there one day.
heres a thought y’all may think about
Have you ever noticed how in the scriptures men are always going up into the mountains to commune with the Lord?
Yet in the scriptures we hardly ever
hear of women going to the mountains.
But we know why — right?
Because the women were too busy
keeping life going;
they couldn’t abandon babies,
and a thousand responsibilities to make the climb into the mountains!
I was talking to a friend the other day,
saying that as modern woman
I feel like I’m never “free” enough
from my responsibilities,
never in a quiet enough space
I want with God.
Her response floored me,
“That is why God comes to women.
Men have to climb the mountain to meet God, but God comes to women where ever they are.”
I have been pondering on her words for weeks and have searched my scriptures
to see that what she said is true.
God does in deed come to women
where they are,
when they are doing their ordinary,
He meets them at the wells
where they draw water for their families,
in their homes,
in their kitchens,
in their gardens.
He comes to them
as they sit beside sickbeds,
as they give birth,
care for the elderly,
and perform necessary mourning and burial rites.
Even at the empty tomb,
Mary was the first to witness Christ’s resurrection,
She was there because she was doing the womanly chore of properly preparing Christ’s body for burial.
In these seemingly mundane
and ordinary tasks,
these women of the scriptures found themselves face to face with divinity.
So if — like me — you ever start to bemoan the fact that you don’t have as much time to spend in the mountains with God as you would like. Remember, God comes to women. He knows where we are and the burdens we carry. He sees us, and if we open our eyes and our hearts we will see Him, even in the most ordinary places and in the most ordinary things.
He lives. And he’s using a time such as this to speak to women around the world.

Legend of the dogwood tree:
In Jesus’ time, the dogwood grew
To a stately size and a lovely hue.
'Twas strong and firm, its branches interwoven.
For the cross of Christ its timbers were chosen.
Seeing the distress at this use of their wood
Christ made a promise which still holds good:
"Never again shall the dogwood grow
Large enough to be used so.
Slender and twisted, it shall be
With blossoms like the cross for all to see.
As blood stains the petals marked in brown,
The blossom’s center wears a thorny crown.
All who see it will remember Me
Crucified on a cross from the dogwood tree.
Cherished and protected, this tree shall be
A reminder to all of My agony."
don’t yall get tired of people using foul language to get a point across? and college educated “fools” at that!
Wow , I like that poem
I’m so bored
I could see only that box with numbers…
it’s strange I can see the pic in 3-D if you remember they were quite popular end of 90’s
Can you tell what’s inside the picture below
I can see it very quickly in seconds…
oops couldn’t find it
It’s a creature with 4 legs and the lettering PERRY below… I think it’s also called Stereogram. Some say to look in one corner and then you’ll see the 3D there is a form inside the picture and behind it’s like a wall… some people never manage to see it, lol
