Myrna shared this quote on Facebook today:
“Humility is perpetual quietness of heart. It is to have no trouble. It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me....
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me and when I am blamed or despised; it is to have a blessed home in myself where I can go in and shut the door and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and about is trouble.”
Oh wow. It took the writer just a few sentences to write what I've spent six years trying to say here in my blog. (I don't know the author's name. I'll add it when I discover it.)
I just wanted to give you something sweet to sip today.
In other news....... I should know what these flowers are called, but I'm not sure. Any of you Master Gardeners out there wanna tell me? (Note in the top photo they are growing quite tall, perhaps 9 or 10 feet.)
And they are scenting our Bunny Pasture this minute and making me think that surely! Heaven must smell exactly like this.
