Thank you, Lord!!

We are blessed with beautiful sunny skies and warming temperatures....and not a moment too soon! I think even the weeds were about to pout about having soggy, cold feet!!

I found this piece of statuary at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago. He was tucked away in a corner in the back garden....waaaaay in the back under some overgrown brush. One really had to look in order to see him. He was waiting for me to find him. It was divine intervention. I'm sure of it.

He seems quite happy in his Mt. Pleasant home. He stands among the pine and flowering cherry trees in a stand of ferns and bleeding hearts at the entrance to Flourishes. At one point today the sun had completely engulfed him and bathed him in sunlight. It was incredibly uplifting...a sunprint on my soul. It's moments like these that make life grand!! Life is out of balance sometimes, but there is always something grand right around the bend!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Isn't the sunshine wonderful? We've waited a while to see it and it must be making Mt. Pleasant a place of sunny delight! ~Adrienne~

Oh what a beautiful statue of St. Francis; always my favorite Saint for his dear kindness to animals.

He is in a beautiful spot in the world and I am so happy that you found him!

See you next week!
