Clean Water Mural








This is a mural for clean water that we found in downtown Charlottesville. I do not know who or what company made it. But I like it. And of course there were wires in front of it, darn the luck! I think my favorite thing about it is the little squirrel driving the tractor. I also love the colors, so vibrant.

 “Listen—the fish in the ocean will tell you their stories. Isn’t it clear that they all know and agree that God is sovereign, that he holds all things in his hand— Every living soul, yes, every breathing creature?”

Fourth Of July House

There is a house in this area, and they really decorate for the Fourth Of July holiday! It is amazing, all the things they have in their yard and on their house! I have to wonder if they have many children or grandchildren, and it's for them. So, here is the house and it's decorations!









“Worship God in adoring embrace, celebrate in trembling awe.

Flip-Flop Wreath





While we were driving through the neighborhood, I spotted this front door with a flip-flop wreath on it. Nothing says SUMMER better than flip-flops!

“God said, “Don’t come any closer. Remove your sandals from your feet. You’re standing on holy ground.”

An Italian Beauty!






I was shopping the other day when I saw this plant. I was delighted, because I had never seen this before, and it looked so unusual. It is Italian Heather! The blooms are like long, thin pockets. One legend says that white heather only grows on the burial grounds of fairies. Long heather branches were used to make brooms. I wonder if this is the broom bush referred to in the following bible verse? 

“Then he lay down and slept beneath the broom bush. But as he was sleeping, an Angel touched him and told him to get up and eat!”

1 Kings: 19
