His Days are Like Grass

0914141414       Frost warnings this week threatened our garden and flowers.  It’s been a short summer and our tomatoes are still unripe.  While I worried about the tomatoes, I really grieved over our hydrangeas and morning glories.  They are my favorites, and have only been blooming about a month. I’m sure you’ll agree that they are gorgeous.

The Lord was merciful and spared us by a few degrees. Hopefully, we can enjoy them a few more weeks. It made me think of  the following passage.

As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field;  the wind blows over it and and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.  But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children. Psalm 103:14-17 NIV

0909141113a 0909141113a      It’s good to know that even if our lives are shorter than we’d desire, we can rest in the Lord’s everlasting love.  It is promised not only to us, but to our children and grandchildren.

    How do you get your morning glories to grow like that? Do they
    get a lot of sun? I love morning glories? My mom used to
    tell about a man who came to our resort when I was growing up.
    He was always up early and out of his cabin. If he saw Mom
    out in the yard he would call, “Good Morning Glory!”

      Hi Alice, we plant them along our garden fence every spring, and really enjoy them. Sometimes we have had a few sprigs come up by themselves but we always plant new seed. This year’s blooms are especially nice. Thanks for posting! Hope you and Landis are doing well.
