Inspired by . . . a month in photos: April

It’s been a lovely  month of rain, and sun, and rain, and sun. I can’t believe we’re getting ready to say “hello” to May.

It’s been a month of welcoming old friends back into my life. The scissor-tail flycatchers are back - five of them this year! Milkweed is blooming, my roses are blooming, coneflowers, blue sage, lantana - - all blooming and welcoming a myriad of butterflies {photos I’ll be sharing soon!}, bees and other creatures! For those of you in northern climes, spring is coming, and I promise, she is worth the wait!

Thanks to all the rain {I grumbled about all winter} the Texas wildflowers are blooming in abundance! The sweetest man in the world says he has never seen the land as green as it is this spring.

Light overshadows the darkness and hope springs forth as a new bud. Love reigns down, and redemption rises to slowly, and tenderly encourage each petal to open to the Son-light.

This is April. This is new life.




Favorite photo of the month:



“Faith does not operate in the realm of the possible.

There is no glory for God in that which is humanly possible.

Faith begins where man’s power ends.”  ~George Mueller


Sprinklings of God’s mercy and grace:

1. The butterflies, oh, the butterflies

2. Birdsong

3. Feeling the warmth of the sun, and the Son again

4. Lunch with a friend

5. God’s perfect provision, just when and where we needed it


When you look back at April,

what do you see?
