Nailed it on a Wednesday? Crazy! Actually, I had a minor meltdown Sunday afternoon while I was trying to take blog photos because I don’t really know how to use my camera and it takes forever for me to change the settings. I ended up taking these photos yesterday during my lunch break.This design was super easy. All I used were 3 nails polishes and scotch tape!
Alliray Garden 2014 has officially started! Last year our garden didn’t do as well as we would have liked, so we’ve changed a few things around, added some bug repelling plants in the mix and are looking forward to this years bounty!
Last week my in-laws brought over some tiny herbs and flowers. We’re in the process of re-potting. I’m hoping to find some cute planters for the sun room and have most of our herbs growing in there.
Somehow our mint from last year is still thriving, which is crazy because we literally haven’t touched in about 8 months. Our rosemary (roots shown above) isn’t doing too bad either.And, in case you were wondering, tiny Valentine’s garden is doing very well! Isn’t it cute?!
Last week I was deleting photos off my phone and I came across a photo I had taken of a page in the book The Valley of Vision. Personally, I have a hard time finding vision in valleys. In their simplicity, these words really speak to me.
Let me learn by paradox
that the way down is the way up,
that to be low is to be high,
that the broken heart is the healed heart,
that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit,
that the repenting soul is the victorious soul,
that to have nothing is to possess all,
that to bear the cross is to wear the crown,
that to give is to receive,
that the valley is the place of vision.
Lord, in the daytime stars can be seen from deepest wells,
and the deeper the wells the brighter
Thy stars shine;
Let me find Thy light in my darkness,
Thy life in my death,
Thy joy in my sorrow,
Thy grace in my sin,
Thy riches in my poverty
Thy glory in my valley
