April: The Charm of Home
This week, we again turned the calendar page!  I am having trouble keeping up with the speed of things.  I had to pause and take a moment to have this cup of cocoa.  It was chilly here and cocoa hit the spot.  There is an infinite wisdom at work here and it is mysterious.  Like the fern unfurling in spring the Master is at work.

April: The Charm of Home
"Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
for wisdom and power are his.

April: The Charm of Home
He causes the changes of the times and seasons,
makes kings and unmakes them.

April: The Charm of Home
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to those who understand.

April: The Charm of Home
He reveals deep and hidden things
and knows what is in the darkness,
for the light dwells with him."
Daniel 2:20-22

The mug is by Graces Tea ware.

Happy April!

Happy First Week of April! We've also been experiencing chilly weather here and some spring snow, thanks to the polar vortex. Love the marriage of roses and polkadots on your pretty mug.

It's hard to believe it is April although it is one of my favorite months.
Your photography is just beautiful and your message is exactly what we all need to hear.
Thank you for sharing this at Thoughts of Home on Thursday!

My first thought when I saw the final photo in your post was "the charm of the garden".

Happy April to you, too, Sherry! I've had a bit of cocoa myself these past few weeks as it's still not yet fully spring here in the midwest. Your teacup and Bible verse are both beautiful! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! xoKathleen

Beautiful post Sherry! Spring is my favorite season and it is whizzing by way too fast. Especially after being away from home for two weeks. Love your sweet mug and garden! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
