The Quote

"I have an old nature that noisily clamors
To satisfy empty desire;
But God in His goodness has sent me a Helper
Who whispers, "Your calling is higher."

-Gustafson.

The Cherry Blossom in our Garden and the Quote

Ambition is not always wrong.
But when it consumes us
So that we can't wait for God,
We display luck of faith.

When we submit our desires and goals to the Lord,
We can be sure that He will give us
What is best. -Dave Brannon.

Lord, grant us now the grace to wait,
To trust alone in You,
Lest we set goals outside Your will
That we with zeal pursue. -Anon.

The cherry blossom in our garden. Sad to say that due to the past cold and freezing nights sometimes, most of its small fruits got frozen and turned brown. I am just hoping that we will get some sweet red cherry fruits this year.

A Prayer and the Beautiful Scene

"Lord, grant me grace throughout this day
To walk the straight and narrow way,
To do whatever in Thy sight
Is good and perfect, just and right."

-Huisman.

The only way is the straight and narrow way.

Can be symbols of God's grace,
If through our laughter and our tears

Bouquet of Flowers for Earth Day

Do you remember what day today is? Thanks to the power of internet who help me remember about the celebration of Earth Day today. That is also the reason why I am offering this bouquet of flowers as an offering to Mother Earth and Mother Nature. I just hope that we always learn to take care and take awareness of our environment even in just simply ways. I had started it for along time by planting plants and flowers in our garden and many more other ways.
Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment. It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in held on April 22, 1970. Earth Day is celebrated in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. Earth Day Network, a group that wishes to become the coordinator of Earth Day globally, asserts that Earth Day is now observed on April 22 on virtually every country on Earth. World Environment Day, celebrated on June 5 in a different nation every year, is the principal United Nations environmental observance. Many communities also celebrate Earth Week, an entire week of environment-related activities. wikipedia
