On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Blue Monday

Linking up today with Backyard Neighbor for a Blue Monday!

Blue happens to be one of my very favorite colors.

Love seeing a beautiful blue sky on a sunny day 
as I look up through the branches of a tree in bloom.

There is a big blue sky
right behind those puffy clouds.

Deep blue ocean

 Blue plumbago blooming on my back porch.

 Hydrangeas at the Arboretum

at the Dallas Arboretum.

To me, blue is a happy color, a peaceful color and I'm not sure how it came to be attached to sad, feeling blue. So I googled it, and since I don't believe everything I read on the Internet, decided to leave it alone. I found several possible answers, interesting thoughts, but I don't think anyone really knows for sure. Both sky and ocean are so vast and blue, I think God must like it, too.

  8. Yes, I love blue as well. I have a Plumbago that does not bloom very well, but I treasure each blue blossom. I also love Hydrangea although mine were always pink. Can't have them here in Florida now. The ones blooming in North Carolina are the bluest blooms I have ever seen. I watch for them every year when I go north.
