Early Spring Flowers

Early spring flowers bring smiles to many faces. The rose always gives a fresh fragrance to the air as you walk by.  The yellow water lily is in our fish pond.  I spent a lot of time trying to get a picture of this bumble bee. He finally stopped long enough in an area for me to get a picture. So this bumble bee brought a smile to my face.

Accept Who I Am Today

3D402826-7711-4730-AB68-E48835DF8198

How do I thank you for coming and being born as a baby.
To give hope, love, grace, mercy and light to all who receive you.
So much love and grace I know you have given to others and to me.
I wonder what it is that I can do to show your love.
Many years you have given me and so thankful for that I am.
Independence is what I long for but it never seems to come.
Maybe acceptance is what I need to do.

Accept Who I Am Today, what I can do today.
Start each day with renewed strength in You.
That the day has been given me to serve You by serving others.
Thank You God, for giving us love and light through your Son.
Give me strength to do all You want me to do.
And to Accept Who I Am Today.

Fall Color-Natural Beauty

Even as the leaves fall and some limbs become barren, the beauty of the woods remain. There is still dark red, golden yellow and brown leaves. The twisted limbs and vines, have a beauty that I think is very attractive also.  You just cannot improve natural beauty.
