Purslane in Pots
Sharon bought me this neat little flower pot holder several years ago. It’s a simple copper rod with a base to hold it up. It took a few seasons to discover that purslane fits it perfectly.
A bit of assurance to start the day:
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1
Day Lilies I
Day Lilies II
These are re-blooming day lilies, and they actually have a nice scent, too. They’ve been putting out blooms for a month now and show no signs of stopping.
We (I) need to remember our prayer shouldn’t be only asking for help, or mercy. Praising God should be a focus.
“Good and upright is the Lord: Therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgement: and the meek will he teach his way.” Psalm 25: 8-9
Got a late start on the vegetables this year, but they seem to be catching up nicely.
Another good prayer from Psalm 25:
“O, keep my soul and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.” Psalm 25:20
The wildflowers have continued for several years after planting over our rebuilt drain field.
More verses of one of my favorite prayers –
“Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses, for they have been ever of old. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me, for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord.” Psalm 25:6-7
