Remember the bulb I planted last Christmas...and it started growing like Jack's Bean Stalk.  The above picture is a few months after planting the bulb.

It just kept growing and producing leaf after leaf.  Well when we got home from our trip up North it had started to bloom and now stand about 4 feet tall.

The bloom is lovely and certainly worth the wait!
Then this morning, I notices another plant is coming up in the same maybe I will have another surprise.

 Proverbs 21:2-3
"All a mans ways seem right to him, but the Lord weighs the heart.
To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice."

Dear Father, You know my heart better than I do.  Nothing is hidden from You.  For You search every heart and understand every motive behind our thoughts.  You have shown us what You require of us ~ that we act justly and love mercy and walk humbly with You.  So I pray, "Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.  I love You.  Amen.

I praise Thee, Lord,
For cleansing me from sin.
Fulfill Thy Word,
And make me pure within.
Fill me with fire,
Where once I burned with shame.
Grant my desire
To magnify Thy Name.
~J. Edwin Orr

"Stormy Weather" watercolor by Wanda

We have been out of town attending an Memorial Service up North where we served in a Church for many many years.  Even thought we have been retired 10 years and live out of the area, they are still "family" and loved to have Pastor Don officiate the services as loved ones pass away.

That is why my contribution for this week is a painting I did in 2007 for a set of Winter Scenes Note Cards.   We aren't as young as we used to be, and needed a few days rest to catch up.    It looks blurry...but that's just the loose watercolor to give the effect of a storm rolling in. 

Look forward to seeing all the "Storms" for the Picnic this week.  Guess we won't be having it outdoors.....haha. And then again, why not!!!!!

To see all the other storms...just click on the Scribble Picnic Badge on my sidebar.

My dearest and I are home safe and sound after our whirlwind trip of North for the Memorial Service.

Thank you for your love and prayers.  This picture was taken outside the church after the service and I thought it was a really nice picture of me and my dearest.

Busy week ahead.  Salad Luncheon and Tea Party at the Clubhouse Thursday instead of a Cooking Class this month.  Will take pictures to share.

With this season of our lives it seems we see to many friends passing away.  We got a call that one of those dear friends had passed away and they have asked my dearest to have the Memorial Service.  We are leaving this morning for a quick weekend trip up North where we served those many years.
Would appreciate your prayers for journey's mercies and for Don as he shares God's Word at the service and that we can be a comfort to the family.

I'm posting Sunday now, since we won't be home.  

Wishing all of You a Lovely God Blessed Mother's Day.
