Pictorial Tuesday with Link Up 7 31 18

Really, it's time to say good-bye to July already?????? No, stop it! I'm not ready at all for August to be here. School will be starting for the kids and all things Summer will wind down quickly. I'm getting too old for life to be going so fast. Seems I was just posting the last June Pictorial Tuesday. :(

Sharing flower photos for Pictorial Tuesday. I think I picked some of the worst annuals that I've planted in past years. The saddest is my Dahlia. I love, love Dahlias. One of my best favorites. It has grown so big, but it is mostly just greenery and as you can see from the photo, it is being stingy with its blooms. My Impatiens are doing better than they every have...finally found the perfect shady spot for them under the eave spouts. Oh, well, at least they did grow since a gardener, I'm not.

Happy Tuesday and it's time for Pictorial Tuesday. Thank you to all who stop by and link up.

Sunday Scripture Blessings with Link Up 7 29 18

"Come now, let us settle the matter", says the LORD
Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow
though they are red as crimson
they shall be like wool.
If you are willing and obedient,
you will eat the good things of the land;
but if you resist and rebel,
you will be devoured by the sword.
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
Isaiah 1:18 NIV

Pictorial Tuesday with Link Up 7 24 18

This week I made a graphic showcasing my Tess. She was a kitten that showed up at our campsite, stayed the week-end, very hungry (we all took turns sharing food with her), and she was still there when we left on Sunday. I couldn't get her out of my mind so I headed back over to the lake a few days later to see if she was still there. At first, there was disappointment because I didn't see her, and then she came running meowing. I took her home. We only had Tess about four years when her story turns sad. She was too young to have heart failure the vet said when I took her to the Vet on a Wednesday, but she was very sick and died a few days later.

Tess loved to play hide and seek. Can you find her hiding among my flowers? Sometimes at first, I wouldn't notice her at all. These furbabies sure do tear at the heart sometimes. Tess has been gone almost 10 years now, but she is missed always.

If you'd like to have the graphic frame I made, here is one below without my watermark. Just right click and save. Hope you enjoy.

Time to link up and share your photography, graphic art, or a photo turned into art. Thanks for sharing.

Sunday Scripture Blessings with Link Up 7 22 18

Now it happened after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' servant (attendant), saying, "Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise [to take his place], cross over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of Israel. I have given you every place on which the sole of your foot treads, just as I promised to Moses. From the wilderness [of Arabia in the south\ and this Lebanon [in the north], even as far as the great river, the river Euphrates [in the east], all the land of the Hittites (Canaan), and as far as the Great [Mediterranean] Sea toward the west shall be your territory. No man will [be able to] stand before you [to oppose you] as long as you live. Just as I was [present] with Moses, so will I be with you; I will not fail you or abandon you. Be strong and confident and courageous, for you will give this people as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers (ancestors) to give them.  
Joshua 1:1-6

Happy Sunday and time for sharing a Sunday Scripture Blessing. Prayers that all had a great week, a refreshing week-end, and life is treating you well.

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.
