Read-Tale Therapy

So much can change with heart-open prayers and some serious Read-Tale Therapy. The verses and quotes and bits of encouragement in each email and comment you lavished on me have helped buoy my lips to smiling and my heart to singing once again. I awoke to the sound of gentle rain upon my gardens and I rejoiced.

Spring returns!

* * *

And so along with the smiling and singing
I feel a bit of dancing in the woods to be in order.

When my feet beg for a bit of respite
I shall sit under the trees . . .

And ponder the miracle of a pink dogwood . . .

And a fancy Shirofugen cherry blossom . . .

Along with the blossoms that merrily dance
On the Gravenstein tree newly planted
With hopes of yummy applesauce
And puddings come summer.

'Tis a lovely day for dancing
Under trees singing a full-throated chorus of Spring.

Don't you agree?

: D

* * *

Let them praise his name in the dance:
Let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

Psalm 149:3

I agree, my dear friend. What a lovely post, and such pretty flowers! I wish I had a garden but all I have are weeds. I need to live in a wetter climate!

Have a really nice weekend! :)

Sometimes I visit her just to see your sunshine--figuratively and literally!

I am so sorry to hear about friend's son--suicide? Of all the things that crossed my mind after reading the post that was not one I had thought of. You wrote about what a high achiever he was, so there must be more to the story. I hope and pray she is doing O.K.

Enjoy your weekend!

I have spent praying time in my garden sanctuary today Debbie. The weather is wonderful, the garden is growing and we have spent a day outdoors.

Praise God for each new day and for renewing our spirit.

I agree!

Thanks for yur encouragement with regards to my son Sean. He is much the same. Still not suer/doesn't believe God is real...

It may very well be a long haul but God sustains us all and if He thinks we need it... we need it!!!

Still love your blog. Keep up the good work and be true to yourself.
