DaShané and Java

My granddaughter, DaShané, spent a few days with me last week.  Besides swimming and playing with the animals, we took lots of pics.  We attempted to take some pics of our dog, Java, outside on the small red couch, but Java wasn't very cooperative though we nearly exhausted our dog treat supply.  We did get some good shots of her inside the storage cube.  Here are a few of my favorites of DaShané and Java.  Enjoy!

Unfolding The Rose

I hope this poem and photo will bless you today.  My husband planted a rosebush for me last month.  With all the rain we have been having, it finally decided to bloom yesterday.  I took this pic after the morning rain.  Enjoy and may God bless you richly today!!!

It is only a tiny rosebud,
A flower of God's design;
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
GOD opens this flower so sweetly,
When in my hands they fade and die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of God's design,
Then how can I think I have wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?

So I'll trust in Him for His leading
Each moment of every day.
I will look to him for His guidance
Each step of the pilgrim way.

The pathway that lies before me,
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.

The Country Life...

We added two more horses to our family recently.  Dakota, who looks like Emily, then Ace, a beautiful blond Palomino.  I don't have pictures handy of Dakota, but wanted to share a few pics that I've taken recently on our ranch.  Enjoy!
