After the Rain


Comes the Sun

the cats greeting and enjoying the warmth of the sun

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4

After the rain4

Daffodils bowed low after the rain

How can a day be a day without a night? ..How can a win be a win without a fight? .. I will not be shaken by the troubles up ahead ..I’d rather trust Your goodness instead .. Thank You for the heartbreak ..Thank You for the pain ..Thank You for the sadness ..On the gloomy days of rain.. Thank You that the hard times..Have a reason and rhyme.. Thank You that the healing makes the beauty Downhere ‘For the Heartbreak’

I love to see the Resurection Fern and the moss in the Cypress tree

Daffodils, Snowdrops and more are beginning to fill the garden with bits of sunshine

  1. Wonderful photos friend! It will be awhile before our daffodils come up. Enjoy the weekend, Anna

    Hello Kathy
    The beauty of your garden is most welcome as we look out upon a white world today. We only got a couple of feet of snow but I’m sure to the east they have more. It’s stopped snowing and we have a bright sun shining on us.

    • Only a couple of feet! I remember when we lived in Ohio what real snow was like – in the south it is rare…loved having four real seasons.
      Have a terrific weekend,

  3. This is so amazing to me – you in the south – already having the beginning of spring! This is so lovely! Loved your scriptures too!

  4. Kathy, I do so enjoy being outside in my yard. You have a lovely one and have taken good care of it. Behind every cloud, there is a sliver lining.

  5. The photos of your garden are so beautiful! I always love visiting your blog.

  6. Oh, such beauty! Spring will be here where we are in few weeks!

  7. Your garden is so beautiful, I can’t believe all the flowers that are in bloom! Thanks for sharing, here we are surrounded by whiteness! xo

  8. Your garden is beautiful and yiur daffodils are earlier than mine! But I expect the first to bloom next week! It’s been raining for four days here and I guess it doesn’t encourage them!

    • This is our rainy season too – this is the normal time Daffodils would come up – everything is quite early this year.
