On our Lenten journey this week we managed mud puddles and trekked the desert, but hopefully we will also find a few green pastures along the way. Psalm 23: “He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters…He restores my soul…”
This is not exactly ‘green pastures’ but a lovely green vineyard @ Groot Constantia, the oldest winery in South Africa. Years ago we visited on a rainy, overcast day (like today)… but gloomy skies made the green pop.
Maybe there’s stuff in our lives that’s glooming us out a bit right now — let’s allow God to lead us into His green pastures. Hey, we might have to lay down for a little while… & sip from still waters… but all of that could be part of God’s restoring & renewing our spirits (& hearts & minds : )
i know, i know — this pic already turned up once this week. But hey – it sure looks like still waters to me… (& maybe not all of you caught it the 1st time.)
grace, peace & green pastures

GL, that picture is worth repeating…. You have a keen eye for capturing the right shot! Your pictures add so much. What is the saying, “A picture is worth 1000 words”?! Love it!!
Thanks for your encouragement, Cin — the thing about the 1st picture, that’s what the duck (of mud puddle fame) was right next to! Such gorgeous surroundings @ Groot Constania…..
grace, peace & inspiring photos — Gin : )
