Walks and wildflowers make my day 🌼

The Sunflower
The beauty of Blossom Trees are one of my favorite!

For you have turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.  Lord my God, I will praise you forever.  Psalm 30:11-12

Heavenly Father, thank You for meeting us where we are. May we humbly lean unto You each morning and throughout our days! Lord, please give me discernment with my time. Help me to see past the urgent to what’s really important. Help me to slow down long enough to ask You for guidance. Show me how You want me to walk, and help me to follow where You lead. Thank you Lord for a new day! Cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee. In Jesus Christ name, Amen.

Acts 2:38
