Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a fattened ox and hatred with it.
Proverbs 15:17 ESV
He didn’t need a ride on a new John Deere, just a chance to sit on daddy’s old tractor and imagine being a grown-up! What satisfies our hearts determines our hearts.
Isaiah 35:1-2 The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy
While her weaker cousins are wilting or just plain cashing in their blooms till next year this Salvia sylvestris is only beginning to show her true colors.
