I have to admit my weekend was full of emotion, tears and frustration.

Most of it caused by me.

When I get in these *moods* I try to do this:

Whatever is true,
whatever is noble,
whatever is right,
whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable-
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-

think about such things.
Philippians 4:8

Think about things like

how God is love,

how blessed I am,

and My first roses and peonies of the summer.

I'm neck-deep in a project... I'll be back soon to show you all about it.

I hope you are feeling better.

WE all have days like that, and usually caused by the same person.(ourselves)=0)

Love your little vignette with your peonies.

Blessings and hope today is filled with sunshine,

What a beautiful posting: and tears must fall for us to know the true meaning of joy.

Hugs and prayers coming your way...I can identify with you Rene. Isn't it wonderful that we have our Heavenly Father to rely on at all times! Hope you are doing better today.

Your photos are just gorgeous!!!

Oh my... not a day like that. They seem to come more often... than in the past.... You sure did manage a beautiful photo of the lovely peonies.... Hope you are on the right tract again.

Hi Rene,
I am sure that you are feeling better now. You did just the right to the Word! That is such a good scripture for attitude adjustments! We all need them from time to time.
Your roses and peonies are so pretty.

Your peonies and roses are exquisite. I wish we could grow peonies here.

You're keeping your mind set on some good stuff...thats the place to run to, Him and His Word. May the Holy Spirit comfort you dear one.

Just a little something from Judy said...

It helps me to dwell on that verse too, when I am going through clouds and overcast day. Beautiful post!

What a beautiful vignette.
The roses and peonies are gorgeous; both are favorite flowers of mine.

Hugs and prayers for a better day,

Hi Sweet Rene, I think we all get like that sometimes. Did you know thats the devil ? We need not to let our minds get to that place. I hoping you keep up with all things that are positive in your life and definitely keeping that Scripture to mind.

I'm very curious about the project.

Sending a Big Hug out to you-

Hope your feeling better:)
Your peonies and roses are just beautiful, mine haven't bloomed yet..soon though I hope!

Can't wait to see your project!


I sure hope your out of your funk, I hate when that happens but just remember we all have them, unfortunatly, it always helps me to destress by decorating,painting or rearranging stuff, it gets my mind off of things(; I'm always here if you need me!

Hi Rene,
I hope your feeling perky again! I get in those moods too, and then I count my blessings and pretty soon I am happy again...

Your pictures always make me happy, such beauty you capture!!
