So nice to be porch-sitting again. It's been so nice outside the past few days, very cool mornings slowly warming in the afternoon.
I found a great spot for this old trellis. I think I'll leave there for a while. I'm thinking I need a climbing plant to sit beside it.
The ivy seems to be doing well, still not as healthy as I would like. I think I will prune it a little more, if I cut that runner the top should do better. It's the cutting from another plant that I shared with you a few weeks ago. I just stuck it down in the dirt and hoped for the best.
I don't know what this plant is, it's a climber and already has tendrils wrapping around the trellis. The blooms are a beautiful mixture of light and dark pink. The picture really doesn't do it justice.
We were out for a ride and saw these bright yellow flowers at an intersection.
Watch out for this dead end, if you don't stop you'll find yourself in the bay!!!
I wanted to close today's post with a short devotion. My mind just isn't working this morning to write my own...but good ol' google helped me out! I searched for one paragraph devotions and I loved the first one to come up ~ hope it touches your heart too!
A Short Devotion With Each Breath
No time to pray? Julia Attaway has just the tip you need.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. (Psalm 150:6)
I have aspirations.
Not of grandeur or power,
but the old-fashioned kind:
And since every breath is a gift from God, it's a given that some portion ought to be directed back to Him. So I keep a stock of breath-long prayers on hand to use throughout the day:
Lord Jesus, I love you.
Holy Spirit, guide my words.
Father, have mercy on me.
Father, forgive me.
Jesus, help me.
Lord, I praise you.
You get the idea. One breath, one prayer. It’s a simple act that can permeate our days. We inhale an average of 15 times a minute, more than 20,000 times a day.
Try using a few of those breaths—5? 10? 20?—to exhale your love and whisper your devotion.
Until Next Time
Live Life Joyously
