Of sunny days
Dissolve as the dark clouds linger.
Each day summer’s warmth is cut short
This summer we have not seen many sunny warm days.
The weather has been usually cool and even rainy.
Our fruit and vegetables have been aching for sunshine in order to ripen.
Each day I check the Weather App and smile as it tells me the high will be 80-85 and then as the day progresses my smile fades as the sun stays hidden and the temp doesn’t rise as predicted.
I keep hoping though that one of these days I will see summer arise again!
Place your Hope in God
Never Give Up—Be Happy!
Experience God’s Peace
Because God Loves You
His Kindness is un-ending
Surrounds, holds me back
All my human strength
Not enough to overcome
Only blood of Christ
Can wash it away
Remora is today’s “The Word of the Day” at Dictionary.com
See the definition and interesting origin of this word “remora” at this link:
In ancient times, the remora was believed to stop a ship from sailing. In Latin, remora means “delay”, while the genus name Echeneis comes from Greek εχειν, echein (“to hold”) and ναυς, naus (“a ship”). In a notable account by Pliny the Elder, the remora is blamed for the defeat of Mark Antony at the Battle of Actium and, indirectly, for the death of Caligula. A modern version of the story is given by Jorge Luis Borges in Book of Imaginary Beings(1957).
Blessings in the Lord
Of grace, love, mercy,
Faith and hope in Christ
And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 1:14
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1 Peter 1:3
Whom have I but You?
To help when I’m sad and blue,
To plant a new seed,
To lift me in times of need,
To listen to prayers I plead.
(Based on Psalm 73: 25-26)
Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
Thank You Lord, for always bring there for me, to listen, care and help.
Smile! Imagine Peace.
You Matter. Breathe.
Be Happy! And Dream.
Have Faith and Hope
My grand-daughter and I had a “painting day” together today. We had fun painting inspirational rocks to put in my rock garden.
She was very creative and imaginative and turned two of the rocks into a horse face! 😊
Steady Hope, never wavering.
True to His Word.
Enduring to all generations.
Ardent Hope, always
Faithful, firm, fixed.
Abiding hope, long suffering,

Trustworthy. This is our God.
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast,
