United as Friends

A lovely Basket of Flowers.

This was on our back Patio with Harry (cat) checking it out.

***

You may like to make yourself a really nice Basket of Flowers for Easter.  If you have a garden it is amazing what you can find in the way of flowers and leaves to make something special.  Put the flowers in a vase or jar of water that is if you do not have Wet Flower Oasis to put them in.

 Then stand them in some sort of basket or a larger bowl.

Once you have organized your lovely Flower Arrangement put it on a table or somewhere for you to look at over the next few days.

  It can bring much joy to any visitors or family that come to your home.

Here is a Poem:

All the Flowers:

All the flowers their faces lift

to the sky and never cry,

for anything us mortals need

except – maybe for their seed,

to carry out their fruitfulness,

of reproducing God’s good work,

in making flowers of glorious hue

for the likes of Me and You.

Psalm:  133 verse 1:  Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

* I hope you have a lovely Day *

   * Maybe pick some flowers and make a cake.???? *

Honour our Friends

This looks nice with the Dark Leaves as a central point in the Basket of Flowers.

Hope you may like a poem today:

So here we are:  It is about a Rose.

*

The beauty of a Rose is beyond compare.

The petals so soft as they take in the air.

The colours so subtle as well as bright and strong.

The perfume out passes even our loveliest song.

The Rose has thorns on the stems and the stalks.

The thorns are protection from predators walks.

So touch a petal smell the Rose.

The perfume will bwonderful to your nose.

Find time, look at its beauty it is so timeless.

Be refreshed with it’s perfume, it’s softness it’s loveliness.

Maybe it’s time to put a Rose in your home,

to look at each day and not feel alone.

Here is a picture of a Pen/Ink Drawing of a Cat from one of my books.  It may encourage someone to look at their cat differently or to encourage a child to start Drawing.

Australian Cat

This is what an Australian Cat may look like – have you seen one out Bush in the Outback of W.A.?

Verse from the Bible:

Exodus: Chapter 20 verse 12 – says – Honour your Father and your Mother.

*

I thought it would be a good idea to think about honouring our friends as well as our Parents.  Friends are very special so it is nice to think of them kindly and to appreciate having them in our life.

 * Hope you have a Lovely Day and be glad if you have a friend *

Why Judge?

Flwrs on Chair

These flowers look good on this old Cane Chair.

Ready to take to Church – they do look comforatble just sitting there. I think the Geraldton Wax sets the Basket of Flowers off very well.

*****

Well what to talk about today then?

Thought I would put this in to encourage anyone to eat a good meal, even at lunch time instead of just rushing to eat something quickly.

It is good just once in a while to choose something different to eat.

The other day I had a lovely lunch here is what I had:

Cream of Cauliflower Soup (Home made from the freezer) Just had to heat it up. Plus a Sausage sandwich. (Cold Sausage left from yesterday’s dinner)

I always toast the buttered bread on one side in the frying pan first, only had a small piece of sausage so I cut it up and put slices of sausage on one half side of the toast, then covered it with Horseradish sauce (to help clear up sinus?) made it into a small sandwich with the other half of the toast – very nice. !

Then had the other slice of toast with Blackcurrant Jam on and Coconut Cream on top.

That was my Gourmet lunch. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then I had to get on with an ‘Oil Painting’  for someone.

*****

Here is a  Bible verse which gives us food for thought.

Matthew: Chapter 7 verse 1

Do not judge, or you too will be judged.

*

One thing what I believe is that it is not a good idea to judge what others eat.

We are all different and all need to eat sometimes a bit different to each other.  That is not to say  that we should eat a lot of unhealthy foods…… or offer them to others who may have a special diet to follow for their health.

But how lovely to eat something that we really enjoy as an enjoyable treat.

So have something today that is special for you.

Have a special – Breakfast.

Have a special – Lunch.

Have a special –Dinner.

Maybe have something

special to share

with a friend.

* Have a lovely Day *

“Flowers for the Altar”

Are we like Children

Painttng with Flowers

Lovely Basket of Flowers as a corner display.

It is nice to think that we do not have to always put a vase of flowers or a basket of flowers in the middle of the table.  They can be very effective as you can see by sitting them in a corner maybe near a window.

I hope you have been having a good day today.

Well I did a silly thing today…...I took a pretty wrapped up chocolate out ot the fridge and as it was too hard to eat I put it in my pocket to warm it up.

An hour or so later I remembered it was there and surprise, surprise it had gone all soft.

It was a blessing that the wrapper was still around it and that I had not sat on it.   So took it out and left it on the table to then harden up a bit.

When I went to eat it – I found out that it was one with melted chocolate on the inside of the round chocolate – which then spurted out of course……what a mess.!!!
The morel of this story is…...do not put a chocolate out of the cold fridge to warm up in your pocket and forget that it is there.

I must say that it still tasted very good, although I had to eat it standing over the sink and licked all I could get off of the wrapper as well.   (We can’t waste these things you know)!

That’s my report for the day.

*****

Here is a bible verse:

Verse Matthew19v14

Well with my episode regarding the Chocolate it reminds me that we should have patience with our Children when they get all yucky eating their chocolate.

Remember that Jesus loves them and us when we seem to get in a mess with chocolate or with other things that happen in our daily lives.

A Brother

with Sleeping Hybiscus

A Beautiful Basket of Flowers.

Two blossoms of Sleeping Hybiscus really helps to make the Basket of Flowers look very good.

The basket is sitting on our two seater settee, so that gives you the size of it.

With Geraldton Wax, Yellow Lantana flowers including the Dark Brown Leaves of…(Not sure what the name of that plant is) helps to make a pleasing display for our home or office.

Here is a Poem taken from a book by J.M.R.Larman.

Poem Love Important

*****

Here is a  small reading:

Psalm:  Chapter 22 verse 22…. I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation I will praise you.

****

I thought it would be nice to share some of our thoughts with our Brothers….. Brothers are precious…yes I know Sisters are precious as well but in the Bible Brothers stands for all our Brothers and Sisters.

Anyway I have three Brothers who are all special to me, also three Sisters equaly precious and they all know that I am a Christian but today I thought it nice for us all to maybe think about them today.  Mine are in another Country and so memories are good to keep and also a few time during the year we like to keep in touch on the phone.

If you have not been in touch with your Brother or Sister for a while maybe it is a good time to think about it, just a word, a phone call or even a postcard to say ‘Hello’

I was able to phone one of my Brothers for his Birthday the other day, he was so pleased to hear my voice and told me that he has to have a heart operation.  If I had not phoned it would have been quite a while before anyone would have thought to let me know.  Now I can pray for his recovery.

I Hope you have a lovely day remembering or thinking about your Brother or Sister who maybe a long way away from you.

Here is a lovely Basket of Flowers – Roses & Geraldton Wax

I thought we would start off with a Poem today especially as it is New Year Time.  Which I hope will be a really excellent 2016 for all who finds this page to read.

*

Time

The above Poem is copied from the Book ‘Godly Verses’ by J.M.R. Larman.

*

It gives us really something to think about because all the things in the above Poem seem to be right.  It is good to spend TIME to contemplate about TIME and what you yourself think about it.

The Days come and the Days go and there never seems to be enough TIME to do all the things we would like to do.

But God says not to worry about tomorrow as there is enough to think about today.

One good thing I believe – is not to put off till tomorrow what you can do today (that is the English way) but many people think it best to leave things for the next day hoping that someone else will do it for them.  Well if they don’t it makes more work for the next day, what a blessing if we have already found TIME to do it.

To be Accepted

This is quite a nice arrangement of Dark Brown Leaves with colourful flowers.

*****

It is nice to know that a lovely arrangement of flowers can be made using some leaves from your garden with just a few pretty flowers to make a nice display for your home of office.

Many people don’t always go to the trouble of having live flowers in doors because they are out working most days, however it is lovely to come home to see a beautiful flower or flowers waiting to greet you.

Poem for today:

This is part of the Poem  ‘Where is that Special Place  taken from the Book of  ‘Godly Verses’ by J.M.R. Larman.

Who would know that in my heart

there is this longing and longing

to be accepted for who I am

not just for what I can give.

Accept me my beloved in your heart

Here is a short note from:

Lamentations Chapter: 3 verses 25-26.

The LORD is good to those whose hope is in Him,

to the one who seeks Him it is good to wait quietly

for the salvation of  The LORD.
