It is finally spring here!! It was nice and warm outside (when it it wasn’t raining) all this past week. It is so wonderful to look out my window, when I wake up in the morning, and not see snow but bright green grass! I have been taking a bunch of pictures, but I decided to restrain myself and only share these. I hope they brighten your day as they did mine.
I love crocuses. They are so brave and bold to be the first flowers that come up!
The sharp points of the petals are so beautiful and I love the purple stem!
The contrast of the bright yellow pollen and the white petals is so strong and eye-catching.
Here is this week’s verse:
Colossians 1. 19,20
For in Jesus all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross.
It is so crazy to me that Lent and now Holy Week are over. In some ways it felt endless and in others it flew by. You know what I mean?
Which picture is your favorite of these? How is your spring going? Isn’t it crazy Lent is over?!
It’s feeling mostly springy here again! I spent some time outside this morning with my siblings and we went on a nice walk, only wearing our sweatshirts! It feels like it has been forever since we didn’t need layers of warm clothing, so it is wonderful to only wear a sweatshirt.
I think Zibah was waiting for someone to throw her the ball. 😀
Very soon all the trees will have leaves! I can’t wait.
This thorn looks super pointy, but I love the color of the little branch. I probably shouldn’t love anything about the prickers, but if we have to put up with them we should appreciate any beauty that they have. Right?
Our Verse for this week is:
Show us your steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation. Let me hear what God the LORD will speak, for God will speak peace to God’s people, to God’s faithful, to those who turn to the LORD in their hearts.
I love that how this verse says that God will speak peace to his people. It is such a wonderful and amazing promise, that God will give us peace and I find it extremely comforting.
What stands out to your from this verse? How has your Lent been? Any prayer requests?
I hope that you are all having a good week and staying warm! It is so cold here it makes me just want to curl up in a blanket with some hot passion tea and a good book, like one of the Keepers of The Lost Cities books. 😀
Our verse for this week is:
Psalm 25. 4-6
Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long. Be mindful of your mercy, O LORD, and of your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.
For all of Lent my mom will be giving us lenten verses. We are lighting candles every night for part of what we are doing for Lent this year. I love candles so I am thrilled! At some point I will post pictures of the candles we are using. 😀 We are also fasting sugar and some technology. I’m not so thrilled about that!
Do you do anything for Lent?? If so, what?? Which picture do like the most? Are you fascinated by icicles like I am?
I am so sorry that I once again missed my second posting day, I had a fun and busy weekend and just didn’t make it to the computer. This week I am planning to do a photo collab with Kaelyn and her sister Lauren, so keep an eye out for it!
Here’s our verse for this week:
The LORD sends out His command to the earth; His word runs swiftly. God gives snow like wool; God scatters frost like ashes. The Lord hurls down hail like crumbs – who can stand before His cold? The Lord sends out His word and melts them; He makes His wind blow and the waters flow.
My mom chose this verse partly because of all the wind we have been having recently. Yesterday a huge branch fell in our driveway and my parents had to deal with it. The wind has been absolutely crazy, so strong. I think that wind has a dangerous beauty, kind of like fire.
This verse makes me think about how powerful our God is! It is crazy when you think about everything he does, how he controls the wind and snow!
What does this verse make you think about? Do you agree that wind and fire have a similar dangerous sort of beauty?
Happy second week of Advent! We lit our second candle for the first time last night! My little siblings are glad that two of them can blow out the candles at a time (there was much fighting over who got to blow the candle out last week)! I cannot believe that we only have two weeks until Christmas! I have no idea how I am going to get all my presents ready by then!
God has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly; God has filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away empty.
Does anything stand out to you in this verse? I love how it says that God will fill the hungry with good things!
I will be posting my second BIBPC #6 picture soon! I also am planning on posting a Christmas themed post.
I would love to hear from you all in the comments!!!!!!!!!!
