Happy September 12th Friends,
I'm curled up in a blanket on the floor writing to you on this chilly Saturday morning. There was a fresh rain last night and this morning and I can't help but feel autumn coming on.
Last night I clipped off all of the blooms in my garden in order to get a fresh display of blooms in two weeks when I will harvest flowers for our Women's Ministry retreat. I planted a big array of September blooming flowers this year for this purpose. So, knowing that I would need to prune, I decided to put together a fall inspired bouquet with the clippings!
Since it is peak grape season as well and I have some gorgeous jewel toned flowers I decided to make a Grapevine Inspired Bouquet, and I have to say I was overjoyed with the outcome!
My heart was so filled with joy at these colors and so pleased at the display that turned out. The Lord has been drawing me to spend more time with Him lately and today I had this beautiful reminder of just how sweet His presence is....
When you're in His presence you feel washed, clean. Oneness with Him spreads his purity upon us. There's a glowing joy. Something of lovely holiness. We need this communion.
I pray today that you have the opportunity to steal away with you Savior and are filled with fullness of joy!
