Graphic by MamaBear

MAY

The wind is tossing the lilacs,
The new leaves laugh in the sun,
And the petals fall on the orchard wall,
But for me the spring is done.

Beneath the apple blossoms
I go a wintry way,
For love that smiled in April
Is false to me in May.

~ Sara Teasdale ~

What a day,

Oh what a day.

My baby brother ran away,

And now my tuba will not play.

I’m eight years old

And turning grey,

Oh what a day,

Oh what a day.

He’s Waiting
I sought the Lord, and He heard me. —Psalm 34:4

Jane Welsh, secretary to Scottish essayist Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881), married him and devoted her life to him and his work. He loved her deeply but was so busy with his writing and speaking that he often neglected her. Some time into their marriage, she became ill and suddenly died.

In a new book by John Ortberg, I read that after the funeral Thomas went alone to Jane’s room and looked at her diary. He found these words she had written about him: “Yesterday he spent an hour with me and it was like heaven. I love him so.” On another day, she wrote, “I have listened all day to hear his steps in the hall, but now it is late. I guess he will not come today.” He wept brokenly, realizing his neglect of her and her desire just to talk with him.

As I read that, I couldn’t help but think, God loves me dearly and waits for me to fellowship with Him. How many days do I forget Him?

The Lord welcomes our worship, our prayer, our praise. He has told us in His Word to pray all the time (1 Thess. 5:17). As He did with the church in Laodicea in Revelation 3, Christ knocks on the door of our heart and patiently waits (v.20). He listens attentively for our call, our cry, our prayer. How often does He wait in vain?

We can know that God is watching,
Always present, everywhere,
And with hope and joy and patience
He is waiting for our prayer. —Roworth

Talk with God—He longs to hear from you.

Bible in One Year: 1 Samuel 22–24; Proverbs 11:12-21

Once upon a time, a beautiful, independent, self-assured princess happened upon a frog in a pond. The frog said to the princess, " I once was a handsome prince until an evil witch put a spell on me. One kiss from you and I will turn back into a prince and then we can marry, move into the castle with my mom and you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children and forever feel happy doing so." That night, while the princess dined on frog legs,she kept laughing and saying, "I don't THINK so."

In addition to May Day, today is also "Save a Rhino Day".

Our second source also states that today is "Plant a Flower Day".

Have a Remarkable Save A Rhino Day!

...And after April, when May follows,
And the whitethroat builds, and all the swallows!
Hark, where my blossomed pear-tree in the hedge
Leans to the field and scatters on the clover
Blossoms and dewdrops—at the bent spray's edge—
That's the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over,
Lest you should think he never could recapture
The first fine careless rapture!...

~~ Robert Browning, "Home Thoughts, From Abroad"

It's

Rhino Day!

The rhinoceros is between 35-65 million years old. They used to live in North America, but are now only found in Asia/Africa - and in zoos. They have poor eyesight, but a sharp sense of hearing and smell - and they can run up to 35 m.p.h. Their diet is made up of bulbs, grass and leaves, and they use their horns to help gather food. These horns grow about 1 inch a year and are more valuable than gold. They are sold for $30,000/pound.

Happy Save a Rhino Day!

I guess is my graphic also exploded. (I wish Google would indicate which images are perishable.) I presume they shutdown if they have too many hits. Whoops, I just checked--it's back up again. (Some part of the above is inoperable.)
