I have both tasted and seen that the Lord is good || Random ;)

“O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.
The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.”
Psalm 34:8-10

“O taste and see”. What awesome splendor is wrapped up in those 4 words! “O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more.” He is good! :) We often stop at verse 8 with “O taste and see” and completely forget the promises & command wrapped up in the verses that follow. As promised in His Word, there is no want for those who fear & seek Him. Through times of peace or war, through trial, rejoicing, temptation, famine, prosperity, persecution, and even death the Lord promises to never leave nor forsake His saints{Deut 31:6}. He promises to be “our guide even unto death.”{Ps 48:14}! We truly don’t need any more than that, do we?! :)  I have tasted and seen the goodness of the Lord. [:

"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
Hebrews 13:5

Well, it has been quite a busy 4 weeks around here and running off of espresso has become a norm. ;]  My mind has been left somewhat cluttered with “loose-ends” that I need to shore up! ;) By the grace of God alone, 2,500 photographs taken, edited,  and prepared for our Garlands of Grace Spring release, long nights working, and a few major work-related hiccups have added to the beauty of a somewhat crazy and very busy month! Hence, blogging has been randomly non-existent.  But here I am, finished with a few major hurdles and life should return to a  moderate level of busy! Or not? ;) We shall see what the Lord has in store for the days ahead and I look forward to seeing His plan continuing to unfold before me but for now, how about randomness in pictures from my iphone and a few from the camera? Keep on trusting the Lord, friends! He is worthy and He is faithful. :)

    What a fun post! I really enjoyed reading it. That apron is just adorable.
    I like your coca cola jar. What a vintage and pretty way to display flowers.
    Your head coverings are just so pretty. Which stretch head covering have you found to be the most versatile and easy to keep from sliding off? (And that you find yourself wearing most often?)

    Thank you for the spiritual encouragement. =)

    For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:6

      Thank you so much, Leah!! :) So glad you enjoyed and took time to comment!!
      I’m not too fond if sewing but when I found that kitten material on sale I just couldn’t help myself. ;]
      I absolutely LOVE this stretch headband in blue dove( https://www.garlandsofgrace.com/products-page/classic-coverings/stretch-cecily-2/) . It tends to be the one I choose to wear most of the time. The color has proven to e so versatile for my wardrobe. I’ll put it on frost thing in the morning and forget I have it in! Doesn’t even budge until I take it off at night. :) I wear it bunched into a thick headband with my pinned hair up. Helps keep those fly-away hairs out of my face.

      Thank you for that verse! Romans 8 is so encouraging. :)

      And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.-Romans 8:28
