Oh, glorious dogwoods bloomin' away! Just lovely! Yes, those pains and struggles can truly bring us to the heart of God should we choose to allow them. I am learning through physical pain again! And God is faithful to teach me.
Thanks you for sharing, ~ linda

Hello, Donna Rae! Thanks for stopping by. I had to do a double take when I saw your name because my aunt loves magazines and gardens, too! So happy to meet you :)
