HAPPY SABBATH — ENJOY SOME FLORA

WOW!!   This blog seems to be mixed up with another by the same name.  That is, they’re both mine, but accessed from here differently.   And sent differently some how.  Consequently, I’ve posted sometimes on one and sometimes on the other for several months.  I’ve had a terrible time with it today,  just now finding the draft that should have gone out hours ago.  So here it is below.

The grass is just a weed, but look at God's artistry with water drops

This grass is just a weed, but look at God’s artistry with water drops even so.  Hmmm  How does that apply to His relationship with us?

Yes, I promised all plant images in this post, however the Coreopsis yielded these from the animal kingdom.  Couldn’t resist.411 cricket & spider 9 18 2015 063 copy copy - CopyThe sun is setting.  Another biblical Sabbath is about to begin, and will end with tomorrow’s sundown.  (The new header at the top is a Mount Rainier sunset reflection from Cooper Point Aug 24, 2015, captured by Tom Bigley.)

Happy Sabbath!
