The Lovely Month of...August

August is such a glorious month of the year...spring is just around the corner and all around me there is new life! 
On the beautiful sunshiny days, I have to fight the impulse to rush outside like a little child, throw back my head and drink in the gorgeousness of nature and the splendour of our King... 
On days such as these, my thoughts are filled with wonder for our Lord who spoke everything into being... 
I am in awe of His strength and majesty when the moon makes way for the glowing sun in the early mornings...humbled by His creativity when I notice the fresh pink-sprayed buds on the fruit trees and the new intricate plants popping up in what would seem the barest of places.
I am so thankful to live in a world as rich and wonderful as this one...a world where the workmanship of our Father is so evident if we would only stop and look for it...

Growth in the garden is always such a delight...

{How I look forward to sharing once again on my very dear blog.  I have been somewhat busy this last while and had to take an unexpected short break...}

I hope all my readers are having a perfectly splendid August!

Much love and blessings on this very beautiful day,

Today I am sharing with...
