A Simple Splurge

Sometimes we need to splurge a little......
On ourselves.....

To brighten our day

Make us smile

Give us hope

Chase away the teardrops

Be in awe of His creation

Sunday Blessings

On a hill faraway
Stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross
Where the Dearest and Best
For a world of lost sinners was slain
So...I'll cherish that old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to that old rugged cross
And exchange it someday for a crown

It is a tad gray and gloomy here on this 2nd day of Spring.
But my sweet hubs is out raking and doing some light winter clean up. The raked areas smell sooo wonderful...
earthy. damp. promising.  
The snow is melting  off the new simple potager and I pray I will soon be lifting handfuls of that garden soil 
to my face and breathing deep of that same wonderful smell...
earthy. damp. promising.

Blessings, Mumsie

A Wee Irish Blessing

From our wee Irish cottage ~

Wishing you always...
Walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain
And tea beside the fire.
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire.

(Irish) Blessings, Mumsie

Sunday Blessing

I will praise you with my whole heart;
Before the gods I will sing praises to You.
I will worship toward Your holy temple,
and praise Your name
For Your lovingkindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word
above all Your name.
In the day when I cried out,
You answered me,
And made me bold with strength
in my soul.
All the kings of the earth shall praise
You, O LORD,
When they hear the words of Your mouth.
Yes, they shall sing of the ways
of the LORD,
For great is the glory of the LORD.
Though the LORD is on high,
Yet He regards the lowly;
But the proud He knows from afar.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
You will revive me;
You will stretch out Your hand
Against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.
The LORD will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

Psalm 138
