Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
It’s spring in the Smokies and the redbuds and dogwoods are all abloom…
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.
Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.
Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the LORD, because he cometh to judge the earth.
1 Chronicles 16:31-33

Hangin’ out with the chickens.
No swingin’ today!

The race is on!
Time for hot chocolate!
For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

Hope you all enjoyed these pictures of our winter wonderland.
He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?
It poured down rain on Sunday and our creek got up –so we just had to go see our waterfall.
Along the way we saw…
moss on a rock…
a wildflower ( cranesbill ?) emerging from the leaves…
and mushrooms on a log.
He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.
