Simple + Southern Sunday No. 39

     “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:38-39‬ ‭sss241-1 “When he shall come with trumpet sound, O may I then in him be found,
dressed in his righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand,
all other ground is sinking sand”
-Edward Mote

    Your tomatoes are gorgeous! I feel so at home here – your surroundings are so close to mine. We have soybeans this year, and they’re starting to be stressed with too little rain – so typical in July. Your cotton looks full and healthy, and what a contrast to the snow. All beautiful, though. That little Braden sure is a cutie! God bless~

  2. AnnMarie says:

    Wow! I can’t believe you have 3 bushels of tomatoes from your garden! I am waiting for one to show up on my one plant! Your pictures are gorgeous! The winter scene looks great after the 90 and humid weather we had over the weekend. We have been eating more ice cream lately, having found a fabulous new ice cream shop!

    Your Sunday posts are always a joy, my friend. I am always reminded of the beauty in everyday things and the blessing of family.

    It’s always a pleasure to have you share your loveliness with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs!
