We moved into the Granville Cottage just as the last leaf fell from the trees. I have to count again to make sure, but I think we have nine trees in our yard. There are a number of shrubs and bushes. Now that spring is here we’ve had some happy surprises around the cottage. A few days ago we were delighted to discover daffodils springing up along the fence in back and from the ground cover. Along the very back fence is a huge, brilliant, yellow forsythia bush. It just flames in the morning sun. We open the back door to the beautiful sound of dozens of birds. Maybe someday I will even get a Dogwood to grow in our yard.
Last week I had a happy experience. Jan Karon read a little piece I wrote about her and posted at www.kenpierpont.com and she posted on my site. So I guess I’m mixin’ it up with the big-hitters now. She is a very gracious Christian lady.
I hope you will take time to listen to the messages in my series Everything You Ever Need based on Psalm 139. You can find it on the podcast page at www.evangelbaptist.com
Well, Hope turned nine yesterday and we are going out for her little birthday breakfast today – so until next week, I have to run. I have a little girl here that’s growin’ up on me and I have to spend time with her while I can.
