the Lord has done this

Psalm 118:23 This is the Lord’s doing, and it is wonderful to see. 24 This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.

If you've visited here before, you'll know I am still working through some challenges. Challenges haven't changed but as I pray and read and wait upon the Lord - I'm changing. A couple of days ago I took this picture. Sunrise - didn't have to be made with iridescent light, dozens of shades of blue and peach, light and dark but God does this every day - somebody sees the majesty of His creation. I felt better - my emotions were soothed, I felt - what's that ??- oh yes - Joy.

Later the same day - our tiny side pond had the first lily bloom of the season. It's good on Buhlaland in the spring and I'm learning - prayer doesn't have to change the situation to be answered.

Linda - Hi - I'm a Texas gal, too. I added you to my list - hope you don't mind. I have been going through some challenges, too, in my own life. I loved your photo of the sunrise - I always get up early and see how God has painted the sky each morning. How can people just never notice??? I hope things get better for you - The Lord is our Strength - your paninis looked great!!! Vickie

Linda - I think there are 3-4 Sand Flats in Texas! We're not near Cleburne, I don't think. Thanks for adding me - I'll enjoy reading your blog! Vickie

Beautiful pictures, LindaSue!
I think God loves it when we take the time to stop and just be in amazement at his creations, don't you?
