Pre-Spring Flowers

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring. Usually, I look upon the advent of warmer weather with great trepidation. Southeast Georgia Summers are long, hot, humid and down right yuck phooey. I’m born and raised in the South, but, needless to say, this is one resident who is not a fan of Southern Summer’s. However, after all the overcast days, cold and snow last season, I’m ready for a bit of sunshine and warmth. I’m definitely looking forward to wearing flip flops and my favorite capris (or peddle pushers, as we called them in school). Even my dear friends at Church will be subjected to these now bloated, white, blotchy legs as the temperatures soar! [lol] Good thing they love me.  😉

Here’s a few photos from around the property. The pink flowers are Azaleas [genus Rhododendron], the white are Cherokee Rose [Rosa laevigata]. All are native to our area. The Cherokee Rose is our State Flower.

It’s overcast again today, which is a good thing because God blessed our area with at least an inch of much needed rain. The new fertilizer should start working it’s magic in a few short days. It will be so nice to see green grass again.

Sadly, the Christian Men’s Job Corp (CMJC) at the Church came to an abrupt halt last week half way through the term. So, now our week is an empty slate. Please pray with us that we all seek guidance from God the Father through our LORD Jesus Christ to show the way in which to help men trapped in poverty. The CMWC, for women, has been very successful thus far. I’m told that many women have been assisted in getting a proper education and then a job. I guess with men they will have to try a different tack.

god is my refuge

What are y’all planning today or this week?

  1. Spring flowers are always the prettiest because we havent seen any color but black and white all winter. Sorry about the men’s group, but will pray they solve the situation and are up and running soon. I just went to the Dollar General to get eggs and milk and left half of the other stuff there, so had to make a second trip in the pouring rain. ughhhhhh….plans for the rest of the day……stay dry!

    1. Old Man Winter just doesn’t want to leave this year.
      Holy cow, I’ve done that too and it was also at the Dollar General! Must be something distracting about that store. 🙂 Yes, do stay dry! I might just stay right here and do some genealogy research this morning. Haven’t done that for awhile. For some reason, I find it very soothing to research.
      Hope you both are well and happy. ❤

  2. Prayed! And thanks for the lovely flower pictures…we’re expecting big rain Tuesday/Thursday, which is really good for L.A…. The funny thing is the news people have a certain number of inches they decided we needed to declare drought is over…3 years ago, we hit that number, then the media raised the amount of inches…kept pushing it up “now we need 13 inches this year” as it rained and rained in unusually heavy amounts but the media was not going to give up on climate change causing the drought if it had to admit we were OUT OF IT 🙂 I always think of that when it rains now! (it’s always politics with me 🙂 Have a happy day, stay warm and you can get those PEDAL PUSHERS out soon!

    1. Most of these weather people are not meteorologists, and therein lies the problem. They try to take something that is mediocre, at best, and dramatize EVERYTHING about it to justify their worthless lives. (That was ugly. Sorry.)
      I think most of what happens in life is because of political, religion, sexual or food based and sometimes “E” all the above. 🙂

  3. No sign of spring here….sigh…although the birdies are back in the bushes, maybe a sign? Sigh…why did the CMJC come to halt? (just wondering–nosy rosy lol)—-hope you all have a lovely day, I see rough weather might be in your forecast, as here, another winter storm…we shall see, sigh.

    1. This term, it started out with 5 or 6 students. All quit early on with only one left. He suffered from Fetal alcohol syndrome because of his alcoholic mother. Poor guy couldn’t focus or stay with it, so, he quit. Bless his heart, he tried though.
      There is rough weather just inches away from us right now. You know how scary that lightning down here can be. I pray that everyone stays safe. ❤

  4. The flowers are just lovely! I agree with you about the hot sticky summers, but I’ll take them over northern winters anytime! Sorry the men’s group went bust.

    1. It’s just me with the heat. I have a wonky thyroid that doesn’t regulate temp’s properly. It’s easier for me to bundle than to get cool. 🙂 I think the CMJC can be rescued. Gotta lot of nice people working on it so it may do so. One idea is to actually approach local business and offer help to their “marginal” employees. You know, the guys living on the edge that can’t quite cut it because of whatever but it’s too expensive to fire them then replace them – this would help THEM and the BUSINESS owner. Smart, ‘ey!? One of the fellow administrators came up with the idea.
      Thanks for stopping by! ❤
