Thankful Thursday - Joy in the Lord

I have missed sharing my gratefulness the last few weeks due to not doing much blogging at all. Family concerns and homeowner duties kept me busy and preoccupied.
I am thankful for God giving me the strength to deal with various demands of caring for my nearly 90-year old mother. We’ve made various trips for doctor’s visits and lab tests.

"Be joyful always;
… give thanks in all circumstances,
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."
1Thess. 5:16,18

In the past weeks, I’ve hosted a few nice get-togethers with my sister and brother and their families, such as my brother’s 60th birthday.

After much prayer to find the right one, I got a local landscape company, which did a major cleanup of the yard and transplanting overgrown plants. Best of all, I was allowed to defray the bill in three payments. Just one payment left now.

The beauty of my flowering plants makes me very happy. Be they hydrangeas, viburnum, day lilies, flowering hostas... all are gifts for my appreciative eyes and heart.

"You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being."
Rev. 4:11

Keeping you and your mother in my prayers.

That's a beautiful cake and I love the flowers you posted. Are they from your garden?

Have a blessed weekend ahead!

I love flowers as well. The picture is beautiful. Prayers for your mom. I know it is not always easy caring for a parent.

You have a nice garden. Since green is my favorite color, it is understandable that I love looking at your plants. And flowers always brighten my day.
