On a stroll the other day, I came upon this beautiful sight.
I spotted it and thought thistle do for a photo.
it's a Burnet moth it flies during the day time
I know the thistle is prickly but I reckon the necter tastes extra good
I count myself privileged to have taken this phone shot 
thank you God

Gods Love

Romans 5:6-8 NIV

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 
Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
His love for you and for me.
-
It wasn't the things that He'd done wrong,
for He had no sin of His own.
It wasn't the feel of the cross on His back,
that made Him shudder and groan.
It wasn't just the thorns on His blood stained brow
or the way He was taunted, tormented, and how,
as He staggers up toward Calvary now.
It was His love for you and for me.
-
It wasn't the jibes or the taunts or the sneers,
That caused His body to ache.
It wasn't the crowd that bayed for His blood,
That caused His heart to break.
Standing there still, His back all bare,
as they lashed Him with thongs to tatter and tare,
No it wasn't the straps that held Him there,
It was His Love for you and for me.
-
It wasn't the nails that tore through His hands,
or the nail that tore through His feet.
Or the soldiers there, as they threw the dice,
for His tunic so seamless and neat.
or His bones like jelly, and a dry arid thirst,
or the terrible feeling His lungs had burst.
or the fact that men, threw at Him there worst,
It was His Love for you and for me
-
It was us, that caused Him to die on that cross,
for all the wrong things we have done.
In thought word and deed, in going our own way,
With Adam and Eve it begun.
To Him now confess, and from wrong things part.
Please Turn to Him, and give Him your heart.
With Peace and Joy He'll give you a new start.
It's His Love for you and for me.

LOVE

1 Corinthians 13New International Version (NIV)

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part,
10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. 
But the greatest of these is love.

A Goose sneaked round the back and pecked me for special attention :)


I was so surprised, I made sure it got special attention it asked for.

Remind you of anything?

Wall Top Garden

Did a post about wall top gardens before but I just had to post this.



Such magnificence on a wall top
there for all to see
but only those who stop to admire
will get the benefit of its beauty.

Just round the corner

Deuteronomy 6:4
Hear O Israel: The Lord our God, The Lord is one. 

The Lord will be king over the whole earth. 
On that day there will be one Lord, and his name the only name.

Who is your God?

Speak it out loud right now

Joshua 24:15

But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. 

But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.

Forgetting



















Are you forgetful?

Some causes of forgetfulness are, l
ack of sleep, stress and anxiety, alcohol, medicines & pills, depression, the list goes on. 

what about choosing to forget?
Do you hold things against people?
Do you say "I'll forgive but I wont forget?"
Do you keep the wrongs they have done in your heart yet say "I love God?"

Psalm 103:12 says
As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

When we seek Gods' forgiveness He not only forgives but chooses to forget as well.

How amazing is that?
if God does this, shouldn't we?
