Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
celebrating the beauty in
the gifts of the garden.

must be open to it!

Wondering if Spring would ever come.  But sure as the sun rises in the East so will the blossoms of Spring burst into being!  

Garden of the Soul

Roses ever bloom
Even with the weeds.


Thanks be to God!!!
