“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7 KJV
“9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?
12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 KJV
Busy Lizzie (Impatiens walleriana) is a sweet little flower who gladly brightens shady places with months of abundant blossoms in a number of colors.
She is a tender perennial that must be brought indoors when a frost is in the forecast, or else she will need to be treated as an annual and replaced the following year. Unlike annual vinca (or periwinkle) they like a little morning sun, but must be protected from the afternoon sun. They also need moist soil, and will wilt when they become dry. If your Impatiens have wilted give them a good watering, and then check on them in an hour or two. It is amazing how quickly they can respond.
“Impatiens” by Theresa Moore
I n shady places we sometimes find
M eloncholy states of mind
P ensive musings that confound
A bjection threatens to abound
T hen when it is least expected
I llumination is projected
E mancipation is effected
N ew found friends came to your side
S upplying warmth restoring pride*
* This pride should not be confused with the sinful, “haughty” pride that causes a person to think he or she is better than others. The pride to which I am referring is an awareness of worth; for a person to realize that he or she is valued and loved.
This post was submitted as part of the A to Z Challenge, where participants agree to post an article that corresponds to each letter of the alphabet and publish an article every day during the month of April (except Sundays).
Here at Serenaded Softly, my theme for the month is Blossoming Verses, where I’ll share a picture of something in bloom, a passage of scripture, and a poem.
