Blessed of the Lord for the precious things of the earth and fullness thereof. Deuteronomy 33:16

Why is it that a Hibiscus
Looks better this time of the year?
I give thanks to the Lord Jesus
For His blessings and the cheer
We gain from the simple things of earth...
Tho' it was photographed in August
I appreciate now e'en more its worth...
In my humble faith and trust ,
I hope it opens again this winter to bloom
In the fullness of its glory in our living room...
Poetry by me, AJP

I'll always remember the pleasure my mother had when she saw her Hibiscus blooming by her picture window in the winter time at the home place...and also my mother-in-law...who loved her Hibiscus...They are both gone, but these memories came back to me this evening when I was going through my pictures that I shot earlier this year..
