This lovely, pink crepe myrtle resides in my neighbor's yard. However a branch has grown through a narrow slat in our fence. The slender branch made its way to bloom on our side of the divide. Lacy petals whisper a dogged determination to branch out and bloom against a weathered barrier ~ its image captured in the juxtaposition of a sunny blue sky and gossamer raindrops barely falling.
September 18-19, 2010, I will be branching out to speak in the Baltimore, MD, area.
Saturday @ 2:00 Ladies Annual Tea
Heritage Community Church
Point of Contact: Joan Bowman, Ladies Ministry Director
On Sunday in the morning worship time @ Heritage Community Church,
I will take part in the service, as well.
I only now noticed that this picture, taken of me last weekend, is against the same weathered fence as the background of the crepe myrtle - a photo I took today.
"And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling. And my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God." ~ 1 Corinthinans 2:2-5
