Grass

As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children-- with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts. Ps.103:15-18

For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever." 1 Peter 1:24-25

Donna - This grass is so pretty - it reminds me of these verses.

This is so gorgeous and inspiring! Also, this might not be the place to post this, but I'm having trouble subscribing to your RSS feed. I've tried twice in the last week, and it says there is an error. Anyone else having trouble?

Beauty can be more challenging to find in the winter, but it's obviously still there. Very nice!

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for visiting and posting a comment! Someone else did have trouble with the site feed - it may have something to do with still being on "Old Blogger." I've never updated because I made so many changes to this template. I may have to - but that will probably be a weekend type project! I'll let you know if I get it fixed. Julia

Annette- It helps to look through a lens sometimes.
