Nesting time. . .

Image

I have been hearing the little birds singing outside my window the past few mornings. Could it be that springtime is on its way?  I sure hope so!

I put  a new bird feeder on my balcony garden today.  I have been peeking out my window from time to time to see if any of my birdie friends have discovered it.

This is the time of year when I feel like I should start “nesting”, too.  I love to “fluff up”  my little nest here in Texas with something springtime pretty.  I can’t seem to pass the garden center without picking up a new flower or two.  I hope you are feeling the promise of springtime in your part of the world (even though it may still be cold, cold winter).  Sending sunshine hugs to you!

Tender mercies. . .

“Great is His faithfulness;  His mercies begin afresh each morning.”. . .I am so very  thankful for his tender mercies and a fresh start each morning!

A New Beginning for Me…

Hello, dear friends, and thank you for following along with me here at “High Cotton”.  I have heard that phrase, “walking in high cotton” all of my life.  It meant prosperous, good times for folks.  I hope you are having “high cotton” times today and every day.  My daddy was one of the finest men I know and so I dedicate this journal to him.  My mother told me that daddy knew my sister, Myra, needed a coat for the winter when she was just a young girl.  Times were hard.  It was during the Great Depression.  Daddy worked all autumn digging out tree stumps from a farmer’s field so that he and momma could buy a coat for Myra.  To me, this is what true love and devotion is all about.  I hope you enjoyed your holiday of love, Valentine’s Day!  Sending love and best wishes to you!
