“How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!” (Ps. 139:17 NIV) And listen as God expresses his love in the following picturesque words: “I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love; I lifted the yoke from their neck and bent down to feed them.” (Hosea 11:4 NIV) Isn’t that beautiful!?
Since I can’t write words that paint that kind of picture, I’ll just follow the advice of another famous saying: “A picture is worth a thousand words.” I’m attaching a picture of my yard as it looks turning into my driveway. Being thankful for God’s love and his bounty to me!
This part of my yard is being sacrificed to reality of my age. The front fountain area will remain but the rest of the landscaping under the trees is being cleaned out and will become more of the lawn area. It is easier to have someone mow than it is to get anyone to do flower beds. I can’t do them. Oh, well. Once the surgical procedure is done it will look nice again. I’m talking about surgery to my yard – not me! Roger (my son) is great at growing nice lush green lawns. He will make it pretty again. The picture below shows bricks piling up as they are being removed.
