Photos to Share

The clematis at the front porch are really growing, since the big trees in the yard are cut back.

Clematis on the other side of the porch ~

This pretty Iris just decided to come up.

I'm so happy my Lamb's Ear has grown this year. I did not know they had these little blooms on them.

A fat little robin on my recently cut back giant shrub ~

My little cat, Jewels was resting on the sidewalk when Bear, the neighbor's dog, went right up to her face. Here they are just looking at each other. He tried it again and Jewels struck her paw out to him.

We just had a 70th Birthday Party High School Reunion weekend of parties. I really don't like to have my picture taken, but thought I would share these with you.

Thanks for looking at my pictures.

Manifest Thyself to Us

John 14:21
And will manifest myself to him.

The Lord Jesus gives special revelations of Himself to His people. Even if Scripture did not declare this, there are many of the children of God who could testify the truth of it from their own experience. They have had manifestations of their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in a peculiar manner, such as no mere reading or hearing could afford. In the biographies of eminent saints, you will find many instances recorded in which Jesus has been pleased, in a very special manner to speak to their souls, and to unfold the wonders of His person; yea, so have their souls been steeped in happiness that they have thought themselves to be in heaven, whereas they were not there, though they were well nigh on the threshold of it-for when Jesus manifests Himself to His people, it is heaven on earth; it is paradise in embryo; it is bliss begun. Especial manifestations of Christ exercise a holy influence on the believer's heart. One effect will be humility. If a man says, "I have had such-and-such spiritual communications, I am a great man," he has never had any communion with Jesus at all; for "God hath respect unto the lowly: but the proud He knoweth afar off." He does not need to come near them to know them, and will never give them any visits of love. Another effect will be happiness; for in God's presence there are pleasures for evermore. Holiness will be sure to follow. A man who has no holiness has never had this manifestation. Some men profess a great deal; but we must not believe any one unless we see that his deeds answer to what he says. "Be not deceived; God is not mocked." He will not bestow His favours upon the wicked: for while He will not cast away a perfect man, neither will He respect an evil doer. Thus there will be three effects of nearness to Jesus-humility, happiness, and holiness. May God give them to thee, Christian!

Psalm 38: 30-31

The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom,
And his tongue talks of justice.
The law of God is in his heart;
None of his steps shall slide.

Jill's Monday Morning Reflections for the name of God today is Peace ~ YAHWEH SHALOM ~ THE LORD IS PEACE.

I thought I would share the scripture verses about peace that I set to music.

Isaiah 26:3,4
1 Corinthians 7:15
Ephesians 2:14

Click here for music.


Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on Thee.
Because he trusteth in Thee, O Lord,
Because he trusteth in Thee.
Trust in the Lord forever
For in the Lord, Jehovah
Is everlasting strength.
God hath called us to perfect peace,
For He alone in our peace.

Honour and Humility

Proverbs 15:33
Before honour is humility.

Humiliation of soul always brings a positive blessing with it. If we empty our hearts of self God will fill them with His love. He who desires close communion with Christ should remember the word of the Lord, "To this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at My word." Stoop if you would climb to heaven. Do we not say of Jesus, "He descended that He might ascend"? so must you. You must grow downwards, that you may grow upwards; for the sweetest fellowship with heaven is to be had by humble souls, and by them alone. God will deny no blessing to a thoroughly humbled spirit. "Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven," with all its riches and treasures. The whole exchequer of God shall be made over by deed of gift to the soul which is humble enough to be able to receive it without growing proud because of it. God blesses us all up to the full measure and extremity of what it is safe for Him to do. If you do not get a blessing, it is because it is not safe for you to have one. If our heavenly Father were to let your unhumbled spirit win a victory in His holy war, you would pilfer the crown for yourself, and meeting with a fresh enemy you would fall a victim; so that you are kept low for your own safety. When a man is sincerely humble, and never ventures to touch so much as a grain of the praise, there is scarcely any limit to what God will do for him. Humility makes us ready to be blessed by the God of all grace, and fits us to deal efficiently with our fellow men. True humility is a flower which will adorn any garden. This is a sauce with which you may season every dish of life, and you will find an improvement in every case. Whether it be prayer or praise, whether it be work or suffering, the genuine salt of humility cannot be used in excess.

Rose of Sharon

Song of Solomon 2:1
I am the rose of Sharon.

Whatever there may be of beauty in the material world, Jesus Christ possesses all that in the spiritual world in a tenfold degree. Amongst flowers the rose is deemed the sweetest, but Jesus is infinitely more beautiful in the garden of the soul than the rose can in the gardens of earth. He takes the first place as the fairest among ten thousand. He is the sun, and all others are the stars; the heavens and the day are dark in comparison with Him, for the King in His beauty transcends all. "I am the rose of Sharon." This was the best and rarest of roses. Jesus is not "the rose" alone, He is "the rose of Sharon," just as He calls His righteousness "gold," and then adds, "the gold of Ophir"-the best of the best. He is positively lovely, and superlatively the loveliest. There is variety in His charms. The rose is delightful to the eye, and its scent is pleasant and refreshing; so each of the senses of the soul, whether it be the taste or feeling, the hearing, the sight, or the spiritual smell, finds appropriate gratification in Jesus. Even the recollection of His love is sweet. Take the rose of Sharon, and pull it leaf from leaf, and lay by the leaves in the jar of memory, and you shall find each leaf fragrant long afterwards, filling the house with perfume. Christ satisfies the highest taste of the most educated spirit to the very full. The greatest amateur in perfumes is quite satisfied with the rose: and when the soul has arrived at her highest pitch of true taste, she shall still be content with Christ, nay, she shall be the better able to appreciate Him. Heaven itself possesses nothing which excels the rose of Sharon. What emblem can fully set forth His beauty? Human speech and earth-born things fail to tell of Him. Earth's choicest charms commingled, feebly picture His abounding preciousness. Blessed rose, bloom in my heart for ever!

"Hope Springs" by Roy Todd

I discovered this musician on Twitter when a minister I know tweeted about him. His name is Roy Todd, and he is " an accomplished pianist who has recently released four piano instrumental albums of his own compositions." This one is called "Hope Springs." I thought it was very pretty.

He is also an evangelist, and is from England, UK. Listening to his music really inspires me to work on my music more. And now I have a new friend on Facebook.
