(breakfast, Bible reading, journal)

“They were totally amazed, for they still didn’t understand the significance of the miracle of the loaves.  Their hearts were too hard to take it in.”  Mark 6:51, 52

“Jesus, according to your Word, keep my thoughts fixed on You, so that by your grace, my heart will be, not hard, but soft with the ability to take in your miracles, Your work in my life every day.”

Oh Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us.
Your plans for us are too numerous to list.
You have no equal.
If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds,
I would never come to the end of them.

Psalm 40:5

  1. It’s so funny that I don’t have any indoor plants. I have plants all over my yard but none in my house. Your post is inspiring me to remedy that! I love the String of Pearls plant! It looks so cozy hanging in the window with that cheerful banner!

  2. You truly are a very talented photographer. I don’t know if you’ve had any “formal training” but your photos are better than those of many professional photographers in my opinion. There is no way I could take a photo of half-eaten yogurt, a journal and a Bible and make it look so warm and inviting. And the photo of the plants above the sink and the three pigs is special too. And your other plant photos have such wonderful color. I realize that one of the many reasons I like reading your blog is because of your wonderful photography skills.

  3. Love all your plants, Shanda! My cats tend to chew on any type of plant I bring in, even when they’re put up, supposedly, out of reach! *Sigh! Some plants can be quite dangerous to them, so I’m not sure exactly what to do at this point because I do love indoor plants. For now, and for safety’s sake, my house is ‘plant-less’.

    Your Pinterest board is very inspiring … lots of beautiful ideas there, not to mention that I would love to grow an Avocado tree! 🙂
