  1. Tasha, I did not inherit my fear Grama’s green thumb. I joke my house is a hospice for plants to come die well. But I am drawn to the process of growing plants & the spiritual lessons they display! What a beautiful lesson you shared this am! Thank you! (((0)))

  2. How beautiful! Thank you for sharing the story of the Lotus flower and the reminder of the beauty God brings out of the mire of our lives.

  3. Thank you Tasha for your wonderful encouragement this morning. I am 76 years old and am going through the longest season of depression and anxiety I’ve ever had, but the Lord is so good and merciful and kind. He visited me in the night awhile back. I was awake all night with His wonderful presence, His Peace and comfort. I also have been diagnosed with some serious back problems which limit my stamina and abilities to stand for very long. I don’t get to see my dearest friends anymore and I am very lonely. But I know Jesus is with me and is my very best friend forever. I would be so grateful for your prayers ❣️

    • Donna, I too struggle with depression and anxiety and know it will most likely always be a constant companion, some seasons more so than others. I would love to pray for you daily, that we remember we are not alone in the battle and that the Lords peace would comfort us always. You are loved!

      • Thank you Kim very much for your prayers! I will be praying for you also! God bless you more than you can contain!

    • Donna,

      Praying that God can send His healing touch to your body. May He give you more good days than bad. Asking Him to send friends your way that will comfort you in this time. May you continually sense His presence, peace & comfort.


      Blessings 🙂

  4. Tasha thank you for today’s lovely reading and the lovely way you discribe it in the flower and the roots. With the way they go down deep to root. God love can take his love make it go deep into the roots of our hearts if we let it. So we can then go share it with others and be beautiful flowers that grow for him where ever we go. Especially to a lost world that need a saviour. I say Amen to that. Lover today’s reading. I want to be that beautiful flowers for God so the world know God is watering me with his word and everything I do and say is about him. I say Amen to that. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xx

  5. Tasha,

    Such a great analogy. God uses nature to teach us many lessons. We just need to slow down & notice. The Bible promises God can make beauty out of ashes. Our trials make us stronger & more rooted in Christ. Chris Tomlin has two songs that speak to God’s love for us no matter what. One is “Who You are to Me” Here is the verse I love
    Sometimes I have my doubts, I’m sure that everybody does And I wonder when I stumble, am I still worthy of Your love?
    But I know that I get stronger when I’m talking to You down on my knees You’re everything I need.

    The second song is “Thank You Lord” The third & fourth verses speak volumes to me
    Thank You Lord for the hard times For lighting the way in the dark times For pulling me in, forgiving again
    The times that I took it too far, I Gotta thank You for keeping me humble
    For picking me up when I stumble And although I change, You stay the same And I don’t say thank You enough.

    Nothing we do or say-no sin is too big for God to forgive. His love is deep, wide & amazing!

    Blessings 🙂
