The Tender Mercies of the Lord...

I believe there are times when a Tender Mercy enters your life 
that cannot be explained by logic or reason.

It is a very personal and individualized blessing 
that does not occur randomly,
nor is it a coincidence.

The simpleness and sweetness of such a blessing will lift your heart
when words cannot express the solace we need or the joy we feel.

The tender mercies of the Lord are available to all of us.

The LORD is good to all 
and his Tender Mercies are over ALL his works.
Psalm 145:9

I have received such a blessing within my gardens
and it has indeed lifted my heart.

In my next post... I'll tell the story.



  1. Joy is good for the soul and gardens bring joy in spades. Historically, gardens have served many a purpose for regeneration, peace, solace and reflection.

  2. As you know it is where I find my peace and solace. Without it I would be lost. I find the connection to a higher power is where my soul sings...I look forward to the story!!

  3. Oh, I do think that we get so many blessings from our gardens. And I am so happy your heart has been lifted. I look forward to hearing your story.

  4. I, too, am looking forward to hearing the rest of the story. Thank God for gardens, they are a wonderful gift.

  5. I find a peace and a moment to reflect in my garden, that I rarely find anywhere else....

    Carolynn, re your lovely comment, I wish the same for you. Thank you so much.
