Simple + Southern Sunday No. 78

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast”
Ephesians 2:8-9

SSS (1)
“He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater, 
He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;
To added afflictions He addeth His mercy, to multiplied trials He multiplies peace”   
Annie J. Flint

“Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need”
Hebrews 4:16

Sun rising over our pasture yesterday!

Cherry blossoms!

Peaceful view after the sun has set!

Have you ever seen a field of canola?  Butch shot this photo in northwest Georgia!

All Caitlynn needs is her pink fishing rod, cute overalls, and her adorable hat to catch dinner!

Just a field of clover…crimson and hop!

Shrimp and crawfish tartine with remoulade, avocado, and dill at our favorite French cafe, Chez Fonfon!

The snowball bushes continue to give us these gorgeous blooms!

We Southerners love our azaleas!

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus”
Ephesians 2:4-7

“I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!”
Psalm 122:1

    I love the shot of the wisteria drooping over the church in the background. It surrounded the steeple perfectly! Beautiful wild flowers – and tame. Your snowball blooms are so nice and white. Some of mine are getting a little dingy. Rain and wind have knocked off some blooms, too. Your azalea is so full of blooms and looks so healthy. No deer have been eating yours! Ha~ Sunday blessings to you!

      Sunday blessings to you dear friend! Butch saw the church on a business trip this past week and I thought the setting was beautiful and I love a white church! Have a beautiful Sunday!

    Happy Sunday to you! Having lived 55 yrs in Ca., we sure miss our Azaleas, Rhodie’s, Wisteria and other blooming plants and trees. Beautiful photos on this Sabbath. We got hit with another snowstorm yesterday and all we can see is white all around us. But “He will make us whiter than snow”.

    • Everyday Living says:

      Noreen, more snow, oh my goodness! I know spring will eventually arrive! Stay warm! Have a joy-filled week!
