For EVERYTHING there is a SEASON.......

As I looked at these gorgeous pansies that I planted last fall, I was sad because I knew they would not be around much longer. Isn't it amazing that these delicate blooms survived the harsh winter to look so beautiful?? Now that warmer temperatures and sunny skies are on the way, they will soon shrivel up and die. In Ecclesiastes it says "For everything there is a season....." So it is with these pansies.......and so it is with us as we journey through this life that God has ordained. And we should welcome each SEASON of our lives as a gift and enjoy it while it lasts. And then we should graciously move on to the next season with anticipation and joy looking always to our Lord and giving HIM praise for His blessings.
So long my sweet pansies......will see you next year!

While shopping the mall last Saturday with my two precious granddaughters, I spotted this very attractive young woman at the bookstore who was dressed EXACTLY like me. I strolled over to her and tapped her on the shoulder and when she turned around she almost screamed! We both had a good LAUGH and then I summoned my granddaughter , McCartney, to take our picture. Talk about a KODAK MOMENT!! My "twin" told me how cute I looked, and I said, "well, so do you!"........It was one of those fun moments that you will remember always with a good laugh.
