Never abandoned

“Blessed are the forgetful,
for they get the better even of their blunders.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche

If Christ Jesus dwells in a man as his friend and noble leader,
that man can endure all things,
for Christ helps and strengthens us and never abandons us.
He is a true friend.

Saint Teresa of Avila

(emerging daffodils/ Julie Cook / 2016)

Just when the old, grey, cold blanket of winter had grown too stifling and heavy…
Just when you thought all joy and enthusiasm had fled…
Just as everyone and everything has moved against you…
Just as you fall, fearing that you’re down for the final count…

God sends a little reminder that He’s still very much present…as in He will never allow you to fall nor will He ever leave you alone nor abandon you for any reason…

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6





****the emerging bulbs planted back early Fall and very quickly forgotten…until now…

    Wow, this is wonderful and so encouraging. Loved it all, but especially the quote from St. Teresa.

    I love watching new life emerge in the garden. Everything is so fresh and unblemished.

  3. You lucky dog. I’ve never ever had any luck with daffodils. They come up year after year all right but with NO stinkin’ blooms. Not a one!!!! This is another great post my friend. 🙂 ❤

  4. Spring…and the promise of summer! New life emerges from the ground and Winter begins to recede into the distance. Amen and Amen!! Wonderful post.
