Abundantly Blessed.

Abundantly Blessed

There is an ebb and flow of life

Times of barrenness…

Times of fullness…

Dry and thirsty times…

Times soaking from the downpour…

A planting with the hard eucharisto

A harvesting the bounty….

We all are acquainted these seasons…

Everyone rides the cycle…

Where are you in the cycle today?…I pray you find Him near…and I know God’s Grace is sufficient to meet you right where you find yourself today…

My season...one of bounty....

  1. A baby shower!!!! This pregnancy is just cooking along.
    So exciting... That necklace is so cute.

  2. I love the necklace! Such a sweet moment and a blessed season.

  3. I just loved your photos! Wonderful list, today!

  4. T...beyond excited would describe my heart...people have spoken of the joy...I am almost surprised the joy that can come from another having a baby...
    Blessing my friend...

    Blessings to your day...

    Grace...thanks...a work in progress...thanks for stopping by...

  5. Beautiful photos and words. So true about our lives having a cycle, a rhythm, a rotation of seasons. I think as we learn to recognize our placement during these times, we are more able to embrace fully God's purpose for the moment.

    Blessings as you helpI prepare for a new baby :)

  6. Oh I love it- beautiful pictures, beautiful words that fill my heart - so glad you are in the season of plenty! Oh how wonderful #baby shower in the same place you found Jesus!!!! yay- I'm smiling right now just reading it!

  8. Beautifully said with photos. Loved it.

  9. shanda...thanks for stopping by...blessings

  10. Beautiful post and pictures. Sunflowers always speak to me -- I think because their face is always turned towards the sun. That's how I want to be, my face towards the SON.

  11. Love the pictures of cotton. It's a site I'm so familiar with, although less and less as the land gets gobbled up for other things.

    Your post reminds me much of "Desert Song." Seasons. I am in a season of harvest now, after a hard season of desert losing my parents. All seasons have been grace-filled though, thanks to God.
