“OFFERING” is Melissa’s prompt for six-word Friday. Here goes:
Jesus came to earth a man
Part of Our Father’s salvation plan.
His life offered on a tree
Salvation can’t be earned, it’s free.
He paid the price for eternity
All I can offer, is me.
This prompt also brought this song by Third Day to mind:
The potted geranium was brought indoors and placed in front of the kitchen window to receive as much sunlight as possible during the short days of winter.
(And being next to the sink, I would remember to water it).
It got a little “leggy” as it stretched forth to soak up the sunshine.
When that light could no longer be kept inside, it burst forth in a glorious red blossom.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely, goodness, mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord shall be my dwelling place. –Psalm 23:5-6 Amplified Bible
This was our greeting when we arrived at our daughter’s house. Oh, don’t get me wrong, the family was friendly enough,
but the sky was rather ominous.
The temperature was a bit cooler than forecast, and thunderstorms were expected. We opted to skip the cherry blossoms and sought an indoor activity. This is where we spent the afternoon:
National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, Virginia
The galleries and exhibits are nothing short of amazing. I didn’t get very good pictures to share, so if you click the link above the photo, you can get all the information from their website.
This is the elevator, surrounded by the stairs to the different deck levels.
The kids enjoyed taking the stairs and racing us (in the elevator).
And wouldn’t you know, at the end of the day as we exited the galleries and returned to the main lobby with glass ceiling–
The view looking straight overhead.
–the sun was shining brightly!
Do you have a favorite museum? Or one you would like to see?
It’s been a busy week, and I haven’t gotten around to visiting all of your blogs. Usually I try to catch up on the weekends, but we’re going to our daughter’s, and hopefully, if the weather holds, to see the cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C. This is something we’ve never done, and I’m really looking forward to it.
Our church has been doing an in-depth study on prayer throughout this Lenten season, and this weekend’s services will wrap it up. It’s hard to miss that.
Which leads to my six-word offering this week:
I have a sense of being
torn in two. Lord, order my
steps to bring glory to You.
I filled the birdbath for the umpteenth time. Those birdies do love their water! Thought I’d share some photos of the garden springing to life.
Day lily, Butterfly Bush (I got it cut back this year!) hopefully it won’t break like last year. Bee balm, Vinca, Catmint, Iris, and Lorapetlum in her full glory. Enjoy!
