Word Filled Wednesday ~ Abiding

It's Word Filled Wednesday and I'm linking up with Amydeanne of The 160 Acre Woods

I took this photo in Giverney, France.  Greg and I were on a vacation to Paris.  We decided to take a train ride to the countryside, which ended up being my favorite part of the trip.  I took this photo in Giverney at Monet's home, the impressionist painter.  The gardens were simply beautiful.  This is the lilly pond that is so famous in his paintings.

It reminded me of how I need to remain ...in Christ.

  2. Wow. That's so beautiful it would make a great greeting/encouragement card.

    I must say, it's the countryside anywhere - be it Europe, the U.S., Mexico, etc., - that I love best. There you meet up with the real folks and the simple life. Too, nature is rarely obliterated by the cement found in cities.

    Yep. The photo is worth a thousand words!


  3. Absolutely beautiful! I kept saying to myself, "WOW, this is a real place..a place of peace and beauty". And the Lord reminded me that I can have this place of beauty and peace in HIM every day! Ahhhhhh!

  14. Debbie:

    I say... let's just GO there!!

    It looks like a place I would love to visit. You and Greg have had some wonderful trips and it's such fun to share the experience through your pictures.

    I wonder what heaven will look like?? I think it will be filled with pictures just like this one, from the original Creator... all of His best!!!

    Love you!

  16. That is gorgeous, Debbie, thank you.

  17. My dear blogfriend, how very true that verse it...apart from Me you can do nothing! I have learned that so well in my life this past year. Without Him, I am nothing, I have nothing. Everything I have and am I owe to Him.

    Have a blessed Easter, Debbie!

  18. I live in the country...wish I had a lilly pond. Beautifl! I've been picking up branches from a recent storm...a good reminder to think about the Vine...I am so glad I know Him and yes I sure can do nothing apart from Him.

    Love you from afar, true sister you are Debbie,

    Carol Joy
