For You My Friend

I am aware that some of my blogging friends are going through a difficult time and so with that in mind I am dedicating this post to those of you who are in any kind of trying circumstances.


You may be finding yourself struggling with health issues or the failing health of a loved one or even weather related problems,I trust that this picture will bring you a sense of peace.
A scene overlooking the beautiful Pembina Valley.
To me this picture speaks peace. When I am standing at this spot and I see this,I feel a deep sense of inner peace and contentment.
I hope it does the same for you.

 God's love does not keep us from trials;it helps us through them.

Wildflowers bloom in profusion,spreading their cheer all around.
These may be simple flowers but they are so brightly coloured that they are like yellow lights among the grass.


Purple Delphiniums wind their stems around a rustic bird house.
The little bird who makes his home here will have flowers gracing the front door.

A single stem of purple Delphiniums stands tall in another part of the garden.
I trust that as you look at these pretty flowers they will bring a smile to your heart and help to lift a heavy load you may be bearing.

As the sun sets it spreads a warm glow through a stand of trees.
As in life we may have trying days,but always God's love shines it warm light through the darkness.


Thought for today:
I was thinking of YOU today and just wanted you to know how important you are to me.

  5. Delphiniums make me think of Christopher Robin from my childhood. He had a poem --"Delphiniums red, Delphiniums blue..."
    Don't remember the rest. But thanks for the encouraging words.
