The Flowers Are Smiling and Not Giving Up...

I thought that since it has gotten pretty cold, as in the 30's for several nights we would loose the flowers and buds that have come out on the trees and up from the ground. As you can see they are hanging in there and in fact look to be laughing at the cool temps. 
No stopping these gorgeous, smiling flowers.
I have been reading a little book called "Jesus Calling."  I love it.
It is a great companion read with my everyday Bible.
Yesterday this phrase really touched my heart. 

The emptiness you feel within will be filled
either with problems or with My Presence.

1 Thess. 5:17-
Pray continually- give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Blessings on this sunny, warm, God filled day! Amy

Amy, I am also reading Jesus Calling! I feel like the scriptures always seem to find a way of applying to my life everyday! I am thankful for God's word!!!

I know, it's crazy how the flowers are blooming here too! My friend was talking about summer camp just like it was a few weeks away (instead of a few months)!

Beautiful. No flowers up here yet. Not close! Too much wind, cold and snow. Getting reading for spring!
