It's beginning to look a lot like spring!

Spring is in the air! Along with thunderstorms and flooding, but it is definitely time to be thinking Spring!

So in that spirit, I put out my gorgeous Spring wreath. Yes, I took down my Christmas really didn't look all that Christmassy. I know, I'm tacky! But it's up now and isn't it pretty. I got this wreath one year in the mountains and I really like it a lot. If you couldn't tell.

AND! I planted flowers in my planters. Doesn't sound like a big deal to you? Well, ask any of my friends and they'll tell you a gardener I am NOT. But in a burst of something, I ran down and bought several pansy plants, planted them in my planters and felt like I had just laid out and planted a garden!

A friend came by right after I planted them and told me they love COLD weather! Lucky for me, and my pansies, it cooled down and they've been blooming like no body's business!

Please ignore the fact that I needed to power wash the planters. But notice I had mowed the grass. I may not be a gardener, but I'm good at manual labor.

Good grief! I just noticed how cracked our driveway is!

So........ tomorrow our Bible study is on peace! According to Bible Gateway, the word peace is used 247 times in the Bible. I need each and every peace verse I can read this week. I have a little situation that could possibly be brewing and I'm really asking for peace. Actually, I already have a lot of peace about it and am so thankful!

And so in whatever situation you face today, I leave you with this......

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

We may have LOOKED like spring today, well except for no leaves and precious few flowers - - - but it was still quite cold. I already whined about it over on my blog in a post titled "She didn't get the memo"

Hmmmmm - - - my word verification is "osavo"

Is that the brother to osama? YIKES how my mind does work.

It was really cold today - hoping for better soon.

There's a situation here, too! I'll probably e-mail you soon.

I love that verse. I also love your wreath and pansies. Which do love cold weather (anything below 70). Mint and rosemary are hadry herbs to grow, and hard to kill. As is basil. FOur o clocks too. I love your urns!

My pansies from the Fall are doing so well right now that I'm leaving them until they start to look like they're struggling - they're just too pretty to pull up at the moment!

Your wreath is so "Springy" and perfect!!

Thank you for the verse...I need that peace always.

I love your pansies! Planter "gardening" is my kind of gardening, too and the only kind I have any success at.
Thanks for the peace verse, too-I needed it.

That driveway looks just like mine!! Yikes!! Love your wreath and pansies too....they won't last long in warm weather. I think in this fast pace world we live in it is comforting to know we can have peace through Jesus.
