Impossible But True

"The Lord your God is with you,
    He is mighty to save.
  He will take great delight in you,
    He will quiet you with His love,
    He will rejoice over you with singing."

~ Zephaniah 3:17

A Summer's Day

"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate."

"As I hold the flower in my hand and think of trying to describe it, I realize how poor a creature I am, how impotent are words in the presence of such perfection."

~Celia Thaxter

With just one close look at this intricate blossom on this winding vine that cannot contain itself to only one garden, I am reminded again of how prolific and generous and creative our Lord is, to sprinkle these perfect works of art all over even humble homes such as ours.

The Art of Gardening

"Gardening is the art that uses flowers and plants as the paint, and the soil and the sky as the canvas."

~Elizabeth Murray

I find endless inspiration for all my artistic endeavors from The Great Master.
