Angels are there for you. They come from the Lord and are around you to protect you.

Psalm 34 : 7 (Sandy’s understanding, yours may be different.)

Anyone can love a rose, but it takes a lot to love a leaf. It is ordinary to love the beautiful, but it is beautiful to love the ordinary.

M. J. Korvan
God’s family on earth , subject to temptations and trials, is very near to His heart of love, He has commanded that communication be kept up between heavenly intelligence and His children on earth. Angels from the courts above are sent to minister to those who shall be heirs of salvation. The angels work to keep back the powers of Satan. EG White.
Green with yellow patterns.
Leaves from the garden today in a pottery jug with left overs in a jar.

Here are some thoughts about patterns:

Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so that each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry.

Richard P. Feynman 1918-1988 American theoretical physicist, known for his work in quantum mechanics.

Nature does not turn out her work according to a single pattern; she prides herself upon her power of variation .

Seneca the Younger (4BC Spain- 65AD Italy Stoic philosopher of Ancient Rome)

Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot others transform a yellow spot into the sun.

Pablo Picasso

There is a sun, a light that for want of another word I can only call yellow, pale sulphur yellow, pale golden citron. How lovely yellow is!

Vincent Van Gogh
Then the words left overs used for food and when arranging flowers or leaves.

I looked at this saying quoted twice. Exactly the same quote with two different names.

Leftovers in their less visible form are called memories. Stored in the refrigerator of the mind and the cupboard of the heart.

Thomas Fuller 1710-1790 enslaved African. ( Was this the same Thomas Fuller ,a question. I liked this Thomas Fuller!)

When I researched the 1710 -1790 Thomas Fuller. I appreciated this story so much I was happy to follow this road and leave the quote where it belonged a memory.🤣

Thomas was known as the Human Calculator. He was bought with 16 other Slaves. His owners wouldn’t sell him because of his great ability and he said he was thankful for that. At the age of 70 after many years of working on the land some people came to see for themselves how agile he was with numbers. Amongst other questions they asked was this one :

” How many seconds are there in the life of a man who has lived 70 years, 17 days and 12 hours ?” There was someone working it out on paper. They came up with different answers.

Thomas answered in one and half minutes 2,210,500,800.

When he was challenged he said: “Have you remembered the leap years? ”

He was correct.

Once Thomas was told that it was a shame that he hadn’t had an education equal to his great intellect and his reply was sharp.

” No, Massa, it is best I had no learning for many learned men be great fools.” Well said Thomas! (Sandy)

This post travelled its own road and I went along for the ride. It is the third day of 2023. My best wishes for a safe journey.

Sandy 🙂
