As I type this post, the May garden grows and begins to look towards June. Today is sunny. We enjoy our old house, and are grateful every day. Good to have goals, and goals can be revised as needed. Memorial Day Weekend, 2023.
haiku: rarely at your grave
rarely at your grave —
geranium blooms freely

Always room to grow
I believe God has given us all gifts, and the expression of the gifts can change over time. My parents were teachers and then volunteers after they retired.
Gratitude and hope continue to grow.
Many aspects to consider, for another good question. Always room to grow.
Grace was my mother’s mother.

Gratitude and Growth
This prompt follows my previous post, Remembrance.
I bought the 10th Anniversary Edition of One Thousand Gifts, by Ann Voskamp. I read the book awhile ago and wished to read the “Introduction for the 10th anniversary edition the gift of grace upon grace,” written by Ann Voskamp in 2020. The Page for the book at Ann’s site has a picture of the cover and more information.
One of my sites is Grief And Acceptance – growth continues, by God’s grace.
Thank you and blessings.
My father was called Home in March, 40 years ago this year. He was a veteran and history teacher. Once he said to me, “Everything will be OK in the end.”
My parents had “big picture faith.”
One day at a time . . . we try our best and also learn from what life teaches.
For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD:
thou art my trust from my youth.
Psalm 71: 5
Thoughts, Poems, Photos
As I pray the Psalms, there is a sense of love and strength through time. I think of my parents and others no longer on earth. Love endures and grows. Friendships change too, as life asks different things of us. Blogs and books, faith and prayer, are constants. I remember how my mother reconnected with some old friends in their old age. Thank you for visiting today.
