Sunday Scripture Blessings 7 8 18

I am so not a gardener. I watched this grow all through the Spring season because I couldn't remember if I'd strewn seeds in my flower bed so I let it grow. Finally, it sprouted what appeared to be a bloom that I was not at all familiar with so I then thought it was a flower. After a bit though, I googled spiky green plants, and found according to Wikipedia it is this:

Cyperus esculentus (also called chufa sedge, nut grass, yellow nutsedge, tiger nut sedge, or earth almond) is a crop of the sedge family widespread across much of the world. It is found in most of the Eastern Hemisphere, including Southern Europe, Africa and Madagascar, as well as the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.[2][3][4][5]

Cyperus esculentus can be found wild, as a weed, or as a crop. Evidence exists for its cultivation in Egypt since the sixth millennium BC, and for several centuries in Southern Europe. In Spain, C. esculentus is cultivated for its edible tubers, called earth almonds or tiger nuts, for the preparation of horchata de chufa, a sweet, milk-like beverage. However, in most other countries, C. esculentus is considered a weed
Link is here in case want to read about it because I guess it can be edible and used for many sources. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyperus_esculentus

Having the weed grow among my flowers reminded me of Matthew 22 ~ the parable that Jesus tells of the wedding:

Matthew 22 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC):

And again Jesus spoke to them in parables (comparisons, stories used to illustrate and explain), saying, The kingdom of heaven is like a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son And sent his servants to summon those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they refused to come.

It also reminds me of Paul's conversion and how he assured that we weeds (I use that term loosely and not meaning to offend anyone) known as Gentiles are adopted in by the Grace of Jesus.

For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. 8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:  Ephesians 3 KJV

There are pretty flowers and there are weeds, but they all make up this wonderful planet that is God's creation. As with people, all things have a purpose. As a human, there are times that I can be a prickly weed or days that I'm a gentle flower. God in his wisdom knows all that about each of us, and he loves us all one and the same. Since I probably won't use for eating or other uses that my weed is known for, I pulled it from my flower bed. Praise Jesus that we weeds will not be pulled from Heaven's garden. We are all welcome. We only need accept the invitation.

Happy Sunday.

You're turn for sharing a Sunday Scripture Blessing. Thank you.

Pictorial Tuesday 7 3 18

This is a cute dainty new perennial to my flower bed this year. I think it's nicknamed pincushion flower. I lost my description card but found this online: 

Scabiosa Scabiosa

Also known as pincushion flowers, Scabiosa is an interesting flower with a pincushion-like center and an outer layer of petals.This summer bloomer can be found most often in shades of blue, white and purple.

My ever favorite Hens 'n Chicks (Succulents) 

A weed that I photographed with blue flowers. Even a bothersome weed can be pretty.
Flowers are so tiny, but the camera made them pop.

Always a favorite shot...up under.

I put this one in a frame that you can find for free at Shabby Blogs.
If you've never checked them out. Lots of goodies.

Now it's your turn for sharing what you've been photographing, a digital scrapbooking of a favorite photo, or a photo that you've turned into photo art. Please share your photography and try to visit other photographer enthusiasts.

Sunday Scripture Blessings 7 1 18

Praise be to the LORD, to GOD our Savior,
who daily bears our burdens.
Our GOD is a GOD who saves;
from the Sovereign LORD comes escape from death.
Psalm 68:19-20

June has said good-bye but is leaving the flowers still.
As the blooms are flattering with bursts of color,
the heat waves of the days will be refreshed with ice tea, colas, lemonade, and water
as we bask in the July sun.
Children and grandchildren will make their summery visits
and the world will seem quiet, peaceful with cookouts, swimming an water play 
as the day winds down to fireflies, glistening moons, and tales around the campfire
with smores and roasted marshmallows.
And at days end, we will rest in the arms of Jesus and be blessed throughout the night.

You're next for sharing a Scripture Blessing. :)

Pictorial Tuesday 6 26 18 and Goodbye June

Happy Last Tuesday in June. Could not wait for Spring to become more like Spring, then it turned into sweltering hot Summer like. Now it is Summer officially in Ohio, and we're back to Spring like with rain. Glad it's been bit cooler though, but hear warmer is on way again. Not really much to share this Tuesday. Took couple pictures of a bridge that I drove over. There is just something about bridges that for some reason seem interesting. Maybe the way they frame the background? Not sure.

Here's another one that I took few years back and shared before. Use to be a traveled bridge, but then new road bypassed it.

And who doesn't love this famous one. First flight ever in all my years, and I got to visit California and go above this one. Great memory and moreso special because the daughter surprised me with the trip and my son and his family lived there at the time so got to visit them and the newest grandbaby.

Abandoned railroad bridge that is now along a newer walking path that we can enjoy.

And of course, the covered bridge is always a favorite find when out and about.

It's Pictorial Tuesday time so please share your photography, digital graphics or photography manipulated into artwork and try to visit a couple others that link and give them a hello comment. Thanks for sharing.
