Melanie, you are awesome. I just love visiting your WFW. That is such a difficult verse at times. Your picture reminds me that when we put that verse into action, perhaps our lives will be as beautiful as that blooming flower and that we will be a wonderful fragrance for Him. Thanks for blessing me today!

I know that has got to be one of the more difficult things to do at times...but it is especially IN THOSE times when we need to do it most. This was a beautiful reminder of that. We DO give thanks ---for in the hard times of life, we lean more heavily on the Savior!

That verse convicts me every time......it says Rejoice in the Lord, ALWAYS, not just when I feel like it,but always. As I grow as a christian, and get older, I am starting to understand the always part. :)
Beautiful picture.
