Some evergreens

We know that not everything is good and that evil is strong but the Spirit talks to God for us as He knows us so well and He speaks according to the will of God. So while these bad things happen the Spirit can help bring good from them letting them work together with our love for God.

Romans 8: 26-28 (Sandy’s understanding. I suggest you find your own mine may be really only mine. πŸ™‚)
All evergreens.
Kohuhu in the middle lifting brown new leaves. Yew arms stretched out on the side. Holly in green and yellow with all its prickles. Then silk tassels in dark brown with wavy green leaves. Ah, and just one rosemary stalk on the right with a little on the left. The shrub has so many small flower buds I didn’t want to take more.
This is how the silk tassels look now. I look forward to watching the new ones form.

Create space simply to “be” and clarity emerges for you to see.

The yew tree exists three hundred years : first green , then dry then gone.

Before I succumbed to the sweet lull of his voice, I made my last request: “Stay“. I was asleep before he answered but in my dreams I heard him say forever.

The greatest gift you can give someone is space to be his or herself, without threat of leaving. HPLYRIKZ.COM

Kohuhu.
Irregular margins on leathery leaves. They are still fine after a week of frost , snow and below zero temperatures.

Here are three don’t sayings and one do .

Don’t get confused between what people say you are and who you know you are.

Don’t tell people your plans. Show them your results.

Don’t get upset with people or situations, both are powerless without your reaction.

Do not chase people ! Be yourself, focus on your dreams and work hard! The right people who belong in your life will come to you without force and they will stay simply because they want to.

I found these with no names. I wish I knew them because I find them helpful reminders.

I enjoyed seeing and picking these few stems in the garden today.
Thank you for considering these thoughts with me.

  1. Another very thoughtful post. It’s important to be ourselves in all things and to always strive to be better. It’s okay to falter to deviate to be flexible, but we must have some kind of center we return to. The sense of who we are and want to be. It’s taken me a long time to see myself and my strengths. I hope it doesn’t take as long for my kids πŸ™‚
