Meant to be

For my sweetie, and our 'meant to be'. 

FF: 8/24/12 Guesthouse, West Texas

Every feel like you are in a foreign country in your own state?
Where we are staying (while the hub works) feels so foreign from our home in East Texas.
Home is green and humid.
Here is brown and dry.
 (and thorny...SO thorny)
Phal Orchid
 I don't think I could ever live without plants.  Ever.
Mourning the (almost) death of my Sharry Baby orchid, I subcomed to Lowe's marked down orchids.   

Bad lighting. 
I'm so weak.  AND I'm hoping for some awesome dark purple blooms.  (I just love the structure, especially against the white wall.)

I moved my "kitchen window" pot from the front porch of this guest house.  The amount of shade was great, but the heat was melting some of my babies.  (Plus they can get extra loving in the bathroom.)

reclaimed metal art
I found a cute souniver . 
Meet Mr. San Angelo.
Cutie-pie.  They have neat metal works down here, and this neat little fella fits the bill.
Once upon a time I lived a year in El Paso, TX (as far west as you can go in TX).  From there to central TX.  We has lots of these horny toads.  They are almost none existent in the wild now.

Out on the front porch the stack-a-pot thing is popping with salad babies.

Homeowner's house plants look good.  (think I'm going to start me some of that var. pothos)

In my grow pot ever thing is doing well. 

I added in this native needle leaf plant.  It blooms orange, and has a tuber root. 
Also this runner (different colored leaves and light colored bloom pods), it blooms a creamy yellow.
We see if they live and do well back home.
My horse herb is all green and fluffy.  This is ground cover for back home. 
Pigeon Berry blooming in the back (more ground cover for home).
The other grow pot has beans, and salad greens in it.  (Esperanza) yellow bells bush and fragrant floss flower in top right corner.  These, too, do well back home. 

Its hot and dry here in August here.  But not crazy hot or crazy dry like some places in the USA this summer.  Hope every one is having a wonderful Friday.

Son-Day: "Step Of Faith"

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Step Of Faith
Above the noise I hear the voice
Of God givin' the choice for me to say
I do believe and will receive
Within the heart of me the seed of faith
He does accept a baby step
As long as I have kept His word inside
But Jesus knows that I must grow
And tells me I must go ahead and try
Well all right, okay, I guess it's up, up and away

Chorus 1
I'm takin' a step, takin' a step of faith
Walkin' out on the promises God made
Takin' a giant leap in the air
Steppin' out on nothin' and findin' somethin' there
Tellin' the doubt to wait, wait, wait, wait
I'm takin' a step of faith

It turns me out to think I'd doubt
Someone with so much clout from up above
And yet I see the way that He
Can work with me and do it all in love
The past is gone, the future's long
And I need someone strong to help me through
I'm ready now to take the vow
And see just what the power of God can do
Well all right, okay, I guess it's up, up and away

Chorus 1

Take that step now
Keep goin', the left, the right, heel, toe, heel toe
Well all right, okay, I guess I'll ride this horse away

Chorus 2
I'm takin' a step, takin' a step of faith
Walkin' out on the promises God made
Takin' a giant leap in the air
Steppin' out on nothin' and findin' somethin' there
Tellin' the doubt to wait
I'm takin' a step of faith
Step of faith, step of faith
Living for the Lord, trusting in His care
Steppin' out on nothin' and findin' somethin' there

Walking with the Lord, stepping in the light
Living by faith and not by sight...
~God Bless~

Son-Day: O My Father

<iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="" width="420"></iframe>

O My Father

Eliza R. Snow

O my Father, thou that dwellest
In the high and glorious place,
When shall I regain thy presence
And again behold thy face?
In thy holy habitation,
Did my spirit once reside?
In my first primeval childhood
Was I nurtured near thy side?

For a wise and glorious purpose
Thou hast placed me here on earth
And withheld the recollection
Of my former friends and birth;
Yet ofttimes a secret something
Whispered, "You're a stranger here,"
And I felt that I had wandered
From a more exalted sphere.

I had learned to call thee Father,
Thru thy Spirit from on high,
But, until the key of knowledge
Was restored, I knew not why.
In the heav'ns are parents single?
No, the thought makes reason stare!
Truth is reason; truth eternal
Tells me I've a mother there.

When I leave this frail existence,
When I lay this mortal by,
Father, Mother, may I meet you
In your royal courts on high?
Then, at length, when I've completed
All you sent me forth to do,
With your mutual approbation
Let me come and dwell with you.

~God Bless~

Test. This is only a test...

I could go real deep with that title:). But it actually is just a test. My other blog says I have too many pictures. So I'm seeing starting a new one under this account will work. So far so good.

~God Bless~
