Where is the Shade? — 15 Comments

  1. Janis – those dry, parched seasons are not always easy to endure. I love the scipture verse you shared – He is our shade, our refuge, a present help in times of trouble.

    I will pray for you, dear sister.

  2. Such a good analogy, Janis. Thank you for sharing this verse and may God bless you.

  3. Deb~thank you for visiting. Looking forward to dwelling in my SONday.

    Joan~thank you for your sweet understanding and prayers.

    Mildred~thank you for your encouragement.

    Susan~glad you enjoyed that scripture.

    Pamela~I like your contrast between the heat and God’s shade; between Satan’s hate and God’s love.

  4. Janis, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. My poor lantana is suffering as well. Those fresh, new shoots need a lot of water to keep them from wilting in the hot sun. They’re like us, I guess!

  5. The shade of the Lord is a sharp contrast to the heat. Just as His love is a sharp contrast to Satan’s hate. Knowing God is looking over my life gives me the peace to stand in the shade.


  6. Dear Janis, Thank you so much for dropping by my blog and all your sweet words. I am so glad you were inspired to set up your “playlist” and I love your music. smile

    God bless you richly on this journey. Your blog is lovely.

  7. Janis, it’s a beautiful metaphor. I see the picture, I read the words, and you have me wondering which flowering plant I am. You have me walking away pondering – pondering is good. Thank you. God bless and keep you and whatever season of life this finds you in.

  8. This looks like the Lantana in our yard. It’s amazing how it comes back each year after being cut back to just about nothing. It makes a good reminder. Thank you for sharing.
