Don’t Forget to Remember

But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.
2 Peter 3:8

“What is the price of five sparrows—two copper coins? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.
Luke 12:6-7 

For I will bring them from the north and from the distant corners of the earth. I will not forget the blind and lame, the expectant mothers and women in labor. A great company will return!
Jeremiah 31:8

Forget Me Not

I did a thing. I bought seeds. The seeds whispered promises of Forget-Me-Nots and Daisies and Helichrysum. They breathed hopes of hues bringing joy to the yard.

I planted the seeds, and the started to grow (to my delight!). The seedlings were transplanted and continued to grow. Then one day…a tiny little purple bud. Oh the joy!

This may not seem like much to you, but I tend to kill even cacti…few plants have lasted more than 2 weeks with me. I always felt bad when I was given a plant as a gift!

So, I am happy to present to you: my first plant from seeds. The first to sprout and the first to bloom. One of my favorite flowers – the Forget-Me-Not!

{Janet’s Germany} Kemmern on Main

Just sit right back and you’ll read a tale,
A tale of an fun-filled trip
That started from a German port
Inside a tiny car.
Inside a tiny car.

The mate was a German-learning gal,
The skipper brave and sure.
Two passengers set course that day
For a three hour drive, a three hour drive.

The weather started getting hot,
The tiny car was tossed,
If not for the open windows of the fearless car
The crew would all be toast, the crew would all be toast.

The car parked out on the street of this charted German town
With Katja
And Markus too,
The two cats in the garden,
Lots of tasty food,
And Janet and Kandi Rose
Here in Bamberg township.

selah_candace_rose_Bamberg_2My first weekend in Germany saw Janet and I on a three hour drive to Bamberg (no boats involved). Janet has friends who live nearby so we had a lovely little haven each night we were in town. They live right by Main, a river, and the first night we took a nice long walk along the Main after a good rain fell. selah_candace_rose_Bamberg_3 selah_candace_rose_Bamberg_4 selah_candace_rose_Bamberg_5The walk was beautiful and relaxing after a hectic few days cramming so much of touristy stops into the previous few days. selah_candace_rose_Bamberg_6 selah_candace_rose_Bamberg_7We also threw in chatting in the garden and a drive to Schesslitz for some seriously incredible Italian Eis. Mmm hmmm. Tasty! If you want to see that tastiness (and EAT SOME!!), you’ll have to go there yourself. Who knows what tasty flavors will be available next!!selah_candace_rose_Bamberg_8
