A few years ago, we started putting out more perennial plants and flowers, and rocking flower beds. But, every spring I also add a few impatiens or geraniums. I just love those bright colors, don't you?
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people.
Colossians 3:23 GNT

For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
Luke 14:28 RSV
How about you, Dear Reader? Perhaps, like me, you're thankful we don't have a God who leaves us to our own devices, with no recourse. One more reminder that it's never too late to go to Him for help.
