God's Beautiful Creation

Good day to everyone! :) So the other evening (Thursday, I think), it rained and afterwards the flowers in the yard (with drops of rain on them, none the less!) were so absolutely gorgeous that I had to take a few pictures....Okay, okay, so I took alot of pictures. But how could I resist? God made this beautiful creation and I think He wants us to enjoy it and appreciate it! ;) 
The Rose of Sharon in our front yard.

More ferns (you can see my foot in this one, if you know where to look...hehe.) 

Lily, I think... ;) 
Purple flower that I don't know the name of. 
Phlox among the hostas. 
Beautiful phlox
Yellow flowers! 

Just so y'all know, I'm going camping this week (Sunday-Saturday) with friends and I won't be able to respond to comments or anything until we get back. :) 
Until next week!  -Faith =)


Hello everyone! Yes I know, I'm a day late...sorry!
The second part of The Clay & The Potter isn't ready for posting yet, so I have a song for y'all today. :)
Blessings by Laura Story I love this song! It's so beautiful...and absolutely perfect! ;) I really like it. Enjoy!

What did you think? Did you enjoy this song? Had you heard it before?
Leave a comment and let know! ;)

The Clay and The Potter ~ 1

O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.        --Jeremiah 18:6 KJV
But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.         --Isaiah 64:8 KJV

 I came across this picture a few weeks back and I thought it would make a great blog post. But I'd forgotten about it. Then last night I was trying to get a post typed up so I could post it first thing this morning, but I couldnt decide what I wanted to do it on. Earlier this morning I found this and I was like "The Clay and The Potter! Of course!" So, this is going to be in two parts. One this week and the other next Monday. :)  I'm going to start with the writing on the picture and y'all are also going to get a crash course in pottery. Wheel-throwing specifically, which is pottery using the potter's wheel. :-)

Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July!

Today is the day America celebrates 239 years of freedom. Wars have been fought and men killed for us. So we can have independence. And are we really grateful? Do we really appreciate our freedom? Everyday do we thank God for the Liberty  to worship Him freely? 
If we were truly, 100% honest with ourselves we would have to say no. There are times we don't give a thought to the lives lost. To the men and women who have died so we can live in this free nation. 
Oh say, can you see by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming, Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there,  Oh, say does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave...

These last couple of days I've been listening…
