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.

Grandma's Rain Lily
When I was a little girl my Grandma had this Lily on her screened in porch - she lived in Sanger, California. When she died my cousin, Carole, got the plant and three years ago she shared it with me. Isn't it gorgeous? And don't you just love the connection of having something of your grandmother's? Pieces of the past remind us of the ones we love and miss and who hold a special place in our hearts. Whether it's a treadle sewing machine, a glass sugar bowl, a piece of jewelry, or a Rain Lily....sometimes in the seeing or the touching we are reminded of how important are the memories we make with our family. That's a good lesson for us, don't you think?
