Beautiful in God's eye~

Written by Sue, Thursday Nov. 4, 2011                                       cold, rainy, temps. 50's.
am thankful for a beautiful, fulfilling day of gardening

Our perennial gardens have been put to bed, to sleep for the winter,  just in the nick of time, we had our first killing frost Oct. 29th. I love flowers, living where we do we are able to have some type of flower blooming year round. Pansies are my favorite for  fall and winter. I love their delicate faces,

they have such a sweet aroma.Yesterday was a beautiful, sunny, fall day.....

So...what does a farm girl do on a beautiful day like this... Buy and plant flowers of course...

Oh! beautiful! pansy that you are, 
you bring me much joy, 
 your face so shiny and bright 
as a morning star

Being an avid gardener, I study the plants that grow in my gardens. I like to look deep into their little faces, I see God's handiwork in every detail. If God took the time to create such beauty in plants and trees, how much more beautiful are we in His  eyes, for we are even more Unique, because we were created by Him in His own image. How Awesome is this !!
~May your days be filled with much beauty and joy,~

Genesis 1:27~ So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Much thanks to Leah for hosting Giving Thanks Challenge! It is still not to late to join! I would so love to read your thankful list.

I love pansies as well and I've never planted them! I think I'll do some next spring. My father loved pansies and he always made sure he had them in our garden in Queens. My mom and I have brought pansies to his gravesite every year in the spring. Your pansies look really pretty and I love the violet colors! Enjoy your weekend!

Do they last all winter there? I have some little johnny jumpups that are doing well despite the freezing temps, but I hadn't considered pansies. I don't imagine that they'd make it much beyond November here. I got a thrill from the scripture you shared all over again. We are worth more, after all, than the birds and flowers to Him. Enjoy those pansies! And I know that you will enjoy the planting as you love to have your hands in the dirt.

Sue, I really like your blog. I appreciate your stopping by my blog and commenting.

I look forward to reading your GTC in the comming month.

I need to do the same in my flower bed and pots. I love the pansies no matter how cold it gets when the sun shines their little face smile.

OH such pretty flowers. I love pansies too and I really think they need a different name because they aren't pansies. :)
I am so glad you had a nice day to garden. I love reading about your day each day and finding myself asking I wonder what Sue is thankful for today.

Pansy's are a beautiful flower! I will never forget my Grandmother's pansy bed, just filled with lots of bright colors. She loved them!

Cheryl November 4, 2011 at 10:27 PM  

These flowers are lovely...such a cheery thing to have flowers smiling amidst the cold!

Oh, and I was so inspired by yesterday's post about your mother. What a blessing to have a mother about whom such wonderful things can be said! I can see her (both inner and outer beauty) in you!

I am loving your gratitude list!!

Cheryl November 4, 2011 at 10:29 PM  

P.S. Thank you for agreeing with me that my grandchildren are adorable. ~huge grin~

Such beautiful thoughts and pictures, Sue! And your "thankful list" always inspires me....

I just took my sister on the "web tour" of your house and farm via all the photos you have on here, and she was enchanted by the beauty of y'all's "Country Life" just as I am....

I love the sweet little pansies. They are so pretty and cheerful.
Have a joy-filled weekend!

Lovely photos, Sue!
I had to grin when I saw the boot of your car stocked with pansies -
what a joy!
I love them too :-)
They'll bring you lots of pretty pleasure over the colder months.

Sue, that's so clever how you've linked back to the post in your sidebar list. I may have to copy that one! It's excellent.

Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous!

Hi Sue,

Oh, I smiled when I saw the photo of all the flowers in the back of you car. My car looks the same when I go flower shopping, it's so much fun.

Blessings to you and your family,
Love, Michele

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
