Truth from A to Z ~ W is for…

Here we are in the first week of March and the letter for our challenge this Thursday is W. March is the last month in this particular challenge. We’ll end with Z on the 25th of March. Next week I wanted to remind you that you can choose any verse with a word that has the letter X somewhere within the word. I’m thinking about a different challenge for the month of April so stay tuned.

W is for Whose, Word, What, Walk

Psalm 56: 9-13

This I know, that God is for me. In God, whose word I praise, in the Lord, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me? I must perform my vows to you, O God; I will render thank offerings to you. For you have delivered my soul from death, yes, my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.

From Maristella: So WISDOM :

“Where there is strife, there is pride,
but wisdom is found in those who take advice.”
Proverbs 13:10

“Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.”
James 3:13

“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere”.
James 3:17

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
James 1:5

From Cheryl: W is for Walk, Wise

Ephesians 5:15, 16
“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”

From Vera:


“and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
‭‭2 Chronicles‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭NASB

From Patsy:  What, Words, Walking

Like 24:17 And he said to them, “What are these words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking.

From Happyone (Karen): W is for WAIT.

Psalms 27:14 WAIT on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: WAIT, I say, on the Lord.

Gleneden Beach, Oregon

How about these rocks with trees growing on them? I found them quite impressive on our drive along the Oregon Coast to our 1st night destination just south of Lincoln City, Oregon. Once we found Salashan Spa we decided to take a walk to Gleneden Beach along a nature trail beside the golf course.

Standing at the beginning of the trail we could hear crashing waves in the distance.

The walk was about a mile to the shore.

It would be great to have some audio so you could hear just how loud these crashing waves were. It was very nice to be along the Pacific again. It’s been since February 2010 that Dear and I have walked along the Pacific ocean. At the beginning of March 2010 we moved from Camarillo, California back to our home in Washington. Our home in Camarillo was about 8 miles from the Pacific. As nice as it was to have our weekly beach walks we are very happy and content to be back in our home in Washington State that is a lot farther from the Pacific Ocean…

Hope your September is starting well. I’m really looking forward to be back to Women’s Bible Study starting up next Tuesday.


Something New…

…around every corner. Yard Art is just a walk away.


The large fountain with a couple frogs perched and ready.



The wonderful color from these flowers almost made me miss the yard art in these planters.


But this next yard was overtaken with their art. :0)


These were all from my walk on Tuesday morning. Wednesday morning I walked around some different corners and I’ll share the art I found in future weeks. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to participate the next two weeks as I’ll be getting some out of state company soon.

Please visit Mary at Work of the Poet to see more Yard Art on Thursday.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

It Was a Great Day…

…for a walk in the neighborhood.


The hydrangeas are really blooming dramatically right now. This one is such an intense blue.


Beautiful lilies blooming.


A lighter blue hydrangea. I really enjoyed how the sun was shining on these blooms.

The next photos are from my own yard when I returned from my walk.


My blueberries are getting ready and I have to be fast to beat the birds to the ripe ones!


Our pears are getting bigger. They usually aren’t ready until late August or early September.


I didn’t plant this Foxglove but it’s blooming in my yard. Such a pretty flower.

It’s wonderful when the weather encourages us to get out and about and enjoy the scenery. I really need the extra exercise and I’m thankful for the motivation I get from the good weather we are having in the Northwest right now. Tomorrow I’ll share the great Yard Art I encountered on my latest walk!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I appreciate it.

Oops forgot to link up to Susan at The Southern DayDreamer for Outdoor Wednesday!
