To start, two thoughts, clinging from yesterday, almost “asides” in a sermon, but items of great rejoicing to me:
~In Eternity, there will be no clocks, wristwatches, or calendars! Think of it! (wow!)
– – -What a venture it might be to spend an entire day like that, just rejoicing in the Lord… But then, come to think of it, after early by-the-clock church worship, yesterday flowed almost that way. – – –
~ (Also from the sermon) Christian joy pictured as a gallon of goodness, of bountiful blessing, poured into an eight-ounce glass, leaving us overflowing, “messy with joy“!
Thanking Him for these wonders just named.
Also thanking Him this morning, in this fragment of time,
~for the rainbow of flowers in bloom about me now:
~the rosy red of rhododendron
~the orange of remaining poppies
~the yellow of buttercup drifts in fields
~the camouflaged green blossoms that hide in snow-on-the-mountains
~the indigo-blue of lobelia
~the lavender of blossomed chives (whose tiny separated flowerets I love to sprinkle on salads and little tea sandwiches)
~the red-violet of iris,
~and for eyes that still can see them all and discern the different shades.
Hear it Sunday, Use it Monday

interesting that you wrote a post about “eventually” – just after this post, about appreciating slivers of time. Nice! But you know what I heart of most about both posts – the pictures of the flowers – and not only the pictures – but the colors that you associated with the pictures – not just blue but “indigo blue” – not just yellow but “drifts of yellow” – I heart it that. Oh, and I mentioned you in today’s post – our chat about Solomon – of course with appropriate linkage and whatnot. God bless you my friend!
Hi Craig, I already visited your latest post and saw that! Thanks for the link-up. And thanks for stopping ’round and commenting here. God’s rich blessings to you, too!
