Friday's Thought:

This rhododendron is very special to me.

My father-in-law, who passed away suddenly a few years ago, gave it to me.

I've had it in my garden for close to 10 years now and every year I get excited for it to bloom and every year it doesn't... until this year!

I was pretty excited to see all these buds and blooms! It reminded me that the Lord sometimes makes us wait, and through it all, He is always good.

"I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD."      Psalm 27:13-14


  1. I like that, Cathy! His love whispers to us through little things and I've found that He uses nature oftentimes. And those verses speak straight to my soul. Definitely want them as memory verses. Thanks for sharing this grace-filled story.

    1. Thanks for your encouraging words Ganise. Glad you stopped by! : )

  2. Haha! This is great! So encouraging! Visiting from Spiritual Sundays.
