Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Christmas Is Coming!


I never know if this cactus is a Thanksgiving one or a Christmas one - and it doesn't either. Sometimes it blooms for Thanksgiving, sometimes for Christmas. I don't care when it blooms - I just care that it blooms. And isn't that exactly how God feels about us?

That is a huge cactus. And so loaded with blooms. Beautiful. I think it likes you. Whatever you are doing, keep it up.

Great little insight (as usual, Marlene). Unfortunately I've been so "bloomin'" busy here that I haven't blogged for a week or more! Hope to rectify this state of affairs this week.

Mine went blooming crazy this year with more flowers that its every had combined. It also bloomed very early, my brother said it is because we had a very dreary fall. Thanks for the little wisdom sharing.
