Odd Hanging Basket

Sculptured like Hanging Basket

This was one of our Odd looking Hanging Baskets.

It had a Sculptured like appearance.

I thought it looked great – especially when the tiny orange trumptet like flowers were out in bloom.

I don’t seem to have a photo of them, sorry about that.

The plant is a succulent and although the stems grow downwards they then change and turn up towards the sun before the flowers appear on them.

The whole thing looks very artistic.


Because the above plant lifts its stems upwards  before the flowers appear I thought this poem would be quite nice today.


All the flowers their faces lift

to the sky and never cry,

for anything us mortals need.

Except – maybe for their seed,

to carry on their fruitfulness,

of reproducing God’s good work,

in making flowers of glorious hue

for the likes of Me and You.



Psalm: 92 verse 1

It is good to praise The Lord

and make music to your name,

O Most High.


I Pray that you have a lovely day today.

God Bless You.




Act Wisely


Here is a Basket of Flowers for today.


It is good to see a nice  basket of flowers, even nicer to see our cat Harry sitting there.

He is not with us any more as he has gone to cat heaven.  However he was a lovely cat very wise but shy and sometime affectionate.

As a token of his affection he would bring a mouse to the back door as a present, so I used to thank him, then leave him to enjoy his prey.


See my servant will act wisely, he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.

That is what Isaiah: Chapter 52 verse 13 says – in the Bible.


So when you think of it  – Harry cat was acting wisely in catching his prey and bringing it as a gift to us.

Maybe we should act more wisely as we go about our daily tasks, then hopefully The Lord will lift us up.  As servants of the living God it is a privilege to  be able to do things for Him, to bring our gifts of obedience to Him, is something special.


Here is a Poem for us to think about living Wisely:

 These are the days of our lives today, tomorrow, yesterday.

What are we doing with them? where are we now,

where have we been, where will we go?

Some have been to the depths of despair.

Some to the height of glory.

Today is a new day, a time to begin.

Start with a clean sheet at the beginning of morning.

Just as a page is in a book or a canvas for painting,

today will hold the picture that we are painting with our life.

The mornings can start with a Prayer or a curse.

The day will progress and unfold as a flower,

like petals unfolding until the flower is full bloom.

So lets start the day with a prayer and blow away the gloom.

Let us get up from our bed, try to smile and rejoice.

Remember God has given us a voice.

Use it bless those we see today.

Tell them you love them, enrich their day.

We shall be blessed when we live this way.  

Today is ours to live.

Walk in Love

 Flwrs BlkBG on Stool

The flowers today are Geraldton Wax & Lantana with lovely Brown leaves and some Green ones.  They are in wet Oasis to keep them nice ready for Church.

As the heading says to Walk in Love –  it would be good to have a poem that relates to that.  The only one that I can find at the moment is this one.  Which I hope you may like – it is called:

Feel His Love.

Come along take my hand

let us run along the sand.

Feel the wet beneath your feet

think of Jesus on the mercy seat.

Run. run, run along the beach.

Jesus is never out of reach.

Stop and feel His presence there,

look  –  feel His presence everywhere.

In the light and in the shade,

even in the water as you wade.

Feel His presence  –  feel His Love

here on earth and up above.


The above Poem is taken from the Book:

For the Kingdom of God. Author: J.M.R. Larman.


Bible verse for today as follows:

2 John:  verse 6.

……And this is love: that we walk in obedience

to His commands.

As you have heard from the beginning,

His command is 

that you walk in Love.


Yes to walk in Love and holding the hand of The Lord Jesus would be great.

 But…..you can walk in love with your friend hand in hand or just beside each other.

To walk in love is really also to walk in Friendship with each other…..that is a nice thought.


Here I would like to put my first ever Video.  It works  better full screen.  If it does not work out for you just delete it  –  or if O.K. please share with a friend. –  that would be walking in love just to send it on maybe.?

May Jesus  Bless you today and always.







Roses & Leaves

Flwrs+ Leaves
Here is a beautiful arrangement of Roses and Leaves from our Son’s garden ready to take to Church.


It is lovely when you can pick flowers and leaves from out of the garden and make a colourful display with them. Sometimes there may not be many flowers growing in your garden but if you fill the pot or put them in the oasis to make an arrangement it is surprising what difference the coloured leaves make with just a few flowers.

I think there were only four Roses in the above photo and the rest were beautiful leaves, plus a gold ribbon tucked in with the basket of Flowers.


Just a small Verse below for today:

This is the Day

This is the Day that the Lord has made.

Come He say’s don’t be afraid.

Laugh and play, sing and pray.

Why not have a glorious day!


From the Holy Bible:

in   St. John: Chapter 13  verse 3.   it say’s

Jesus knew that The Father had put

all things under His power

and that

He had come from God and was

returning to God.


As Christians we can take heart and believe the above verse that Jesus really did walk on this Planet Earth and has returned to His Heavenly Home to wait for us.

I hope you have a lovely Day today

God Bless You.



Be Faithful

 Be Faithful


Another Flower Arrangement ready for Church.


I thought the above arrangement looked quite nice sitting in the green box and with the purple ribbon tucked in with the flowers from my garden.

It is surprising what you can do with culling things from the garden including leaves to put in the background and the really dark leaves in the middle.

Don’t be frightened to experiment with different leaves and foliage to be put in odd containers instead of a vase.


Here is a quick Poem.

This is the Day that the Lord has made.

Come He say’s don’t be afraid.

Laugh and play, sing and pray.

Why not have a glorious day!


And here is a quick Bible Verse:

Revelation:  Chapter 12 verse 10

“Be faithful until death


I will give you a crown of life.”


How about that then – what does it mean if we are to be faithful – well that means – I am pretty sure – to be faithful to God, to Jesus and to The Holy Spirit.

How are we going to do that?  Well the main thing is to try our best to keep the Ten Commandments that were given to Moses.

O.K. so we all fall down on the job – but – through Jesus we can repent and try again to be faithful towards our Heavenly Father. 


Have a Lovely Day.

Let us try to be faithful to friends and family as I pray they will be faithful to us as well.




Fragrant Rose Poem


Pencil Drawing of a Dog Rose by: J. Larman with added colour

***  Fragrant Rose  ***

Dear God I’m thinking of that flower. Ever fragrant in every hour.

The wonders of this Universe, makes one want to write a verse.

The delicate softness of the petals Against the hardness of different metals.


To touch a Rose is a wonderful thing. Man made metals  –  no real pleasure bring.

But touch and smell a dew fresh Rose, is a pleasure few of us really knows.


To touch and feel your wonderful world, especially the Petals so curiously curled.

What a priceless treasure the Rose must be.

I pray they’ll be there in Eternity.



2 Peter:  Chapter 3 verse 18

“Grow in grace


in the knowledge of our

Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ”


I hope you like today’s Poem above it is taken from the book – ‘For The Kingdom of God’  Inspirational Verse by: J.M.R. Larman.

Maybe today you will be able to smell a Rose or even purchase one for your garden or just treat yourself to one Rose to put in a vase indoors with some green leaves etc., 

It is surprising what a talking piece it can be if you are fortunate to have a visitor.

May God Bless you this week with something special – especially His Love that you can share in thought, word or deed with others.

Have a Lovely Day.

Tender Love

Roses in Frame

 Here is my Poem for today:  especially if you have a new born Baby.

Little One.

Little one sleeping there,

Tender Love Divine.

Little one Sleeping there,

Are you truly mine.

Has God given you to me,

Tender love Divine?

Has God given you to me?

Yes,  –  You’re truly mine.



Deuteronomy:  Chapter verse 27

The Eternal God is your refuge

and underneath

are the everlasting arms.

Tender Love Divine is something we can lavish on our Babies, sometimes we love them so much, it is hard to believe that God Loves Us with an Everlasting Love.  Let us carry on that love that The Lord God has put into our hearts towards others during our life on this earth.

May The Love of God be with you today whatever your circumstances are, do not be robbed of the fact that Jesus Loves you just as you are.

God Bless You with Love to Share.

The Truth

with Sleeping Hybiscus

Here is a Lovely Basket of Flowers from my garden ready to take to Church.

Notice the two Blooms of the Sleeping Hibiscus Flower.

When you think of it, lots of us are just sleeping like that, we seem to  be living in our sins, we don’t want to get rid of them and walk in Truth.

So mainly we hide our sins away from some of our friends and family.  Therefore we cannot blossom as we should in our home or our workplace.  In  other words we have one face for the world to see and another when we are on our own to wallow in those really forbidden things that we cannot give up.

The only way that we can hopefully overcome is to be Born again.

Lots of people don’t know what that means – well you may like to read:

John: Chapter 3 verse 3. 

“I tell you the truth, no-one can see the

Kingdom of God

unless he is born again”


Here is a Poem for today from the book:
‘For the Kingdom of God’
Inspirational Verse by: J.M.R.Larman.


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 on their fruitfulness,

Of reproducing God’s good work,

In making flowers of glorious hue

For the likes of Me and you.


Isn’t it marvellous that we have all the flowers throughout the world for us to enjoy.   However the Sleeping Hibiscus never opens fully – just stays as it is in the Photograph above.

With Love & God  Bless you today.



Walk in Love


My Oil Painting – Apricot Rose.
Poem from Book: For the Kingdom of God – Inspirational Verse.  By: J.M.R. Larman.

 Love  –  Most Important

Love is the most important thing, Open your heart let it come in.  Only when you let love into your heart, can you truly make a fresh start.

Then you can learn to love your brother, Christian people should love each other.  Not just now but day after day, then together with Jesus learn to pray.

Give your Sister in Christ a smile, you may not see her for a while.  don’t let hate and misery and greed be in you or you can’t intercede.

Love is the important thing in life, not anger, hate, worry and strife.  So love each other as Jesus loves you.  Get on with the work He gives you to do.

Don’t look to the left then to the right.  Keep Jesus always in your sight.  He will bless you as only He can.  When you help Him carry out His plan.

Don’t keep asking for worthless things.  Soar to heavenly places as on wings.  Love, Peace, Joy and Grace are the blessings that win the race. 

Look at each other  – stop the doubt.  Don’t try to catch each other out.  We are not to judge our Sisters & Brothers.  Jesus loves each one  –  as much as the others.

 2 John:  verse 6.

And this is love:

that we walk in obedience to His commands.

 As you have heard from the beginning,

His command is that you walk in love.



God Bless us today as we try to walk

in the Love of God  – our Heavenly Father.




Someone Special ?

Flowers in Hanging Basket.


Here is a verse from one of my Poems.

I just thought it would be nice to share it today.


A Poem is a good way to remember or to think of family or friends who may have moved away from us for various reasons. And only we know that in our hearts we miss them still.

Sometimes we cannot talk to others about what we feel and forget that our friends and people we meet in the street have feelings too.  But they as well probably keep their thoughts close in their hearts not able to speak out about their own feelings.

So here we are: – just think of that special someone that you miss and relive in your mind some of the good times and things that you did together.

 They may have been very special.


There is an awakening in my heart to-day,

I feel that you are not far away.

But I cannot see you anymore

although your memory lingers on

and in my heart you are here to stay.



Have a Lovely day relishing some good memories.


God Bless You Today.
