Scenes from the Country - No. 10

Friday, October 31, 2014

I had never actually seen olive trees before our trip to California this summer. They are beautiful. I picked up some seeds from beneath the trees in hopes that I can grow them in East Texas. Our local vineyards thrive here, so maybe olives will too!

Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Wishing you God's best,

  1. This scene is so peaceful! I just want to wander down the road and see what is around the corner! Thanks for sharing at SASS: Share a Snap Sunday. (Note: the party had a name change and a new button will be posted soon)

  2. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing this at the blog link up. Blessings!

  3. And I'm a big "heart-rock" person. And focusing on the Rocks around and about the world until our Spiritual Rock will arrive. Can hardly wait!!! Thanks for showing and sharing.

  4. I love the beauty of the olive trees in California.

  5. I love the verse you chose and how you describe it as a heart rock for our pocket. A beautiful image to remember when studying God's word. Blessed you linked with The Weekend Brew.

  6. Beautiful!! My parents had a nativity set carved from olive tree wood. I used to love to smell them when I was a kid. When I read that these were olive trees...I could smell them again :)


I love to hear from you. Please leave a message.
