While the earth remaineth...

The hollyhocks were beautiful in September. As I look out my window this February day at the ugly piles of old snow still lurking around from the snow storms we had in December, it seems as if spring might never come again. I'm so glad we can rely on God's promises!

Beautiful hollyhock. I've grown them here. They seem an old fashioned flower. Thank you for sharing it.

We would love a snow!!!!!

Spring IS coming...on our way to AWANA last night it was still light enough at 5:15 for the kids to read by daylight...they even mentioned it.

beautiful picture!

What a lovely WFW. I love the picture of the hollyhocks. It is good to be reminded that the Lord will provide us with spring just as He has provided us with winter.

Beautiful photo! I, too, love the promises of God. We're having spring-like days in MS so I'm longing for good old-fashioned winter today. Happy WFW!

Isn't that the truth? If we can't rely on anything else, we can rely on God's promises!! Happy WFW!!

Hi Karla,
What a lovely photo and verse... very befitting one another!
I was just walking through my garden plot this evening. Although we don't have snow... the garden is barren, with dead branches and alot of old morning glory vines that need picked up. I did see last years' hollyhocks have come up... and are about 4" tall... eager for warm weather so they can once again grow in the SONshine.
Loved your verse today, and I'm relying on God's promises.
Holykisses,
Hope you're doing well!
