Come Ride The New Orleans Street Car Down St. Charles Avenue With Me
We're Looking for Hope; the symbol of pink
We'll start off with a beautiful pink Louisiana Hibiscus -- this one is growing in Jackson Square near the St. Louis Cathedral. Go ahead pick it, put it in your hair or use it as an umbrella in your drink. I live but a few hours from New Orleans so I often visit. Thank you for allowing me to join Pink Saturday and "hi" to all.
I first heard of "Pink Saturday" with Beverly Abbott from the Summer 2010 issue of Artful Blogging. I adore that magazine! Did you notice something different about that issue the moment you began to read it? I did! -- Blessings ran through the words of that issue like thread through a button, strong with closure. And this group truly is blessed -- you've got the Spirit of Multiplicity running through your pretty-pink veins. Look at your growth. This is hard to do in blogland.
Why its nothing but a miracle!
We're traveling down St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans on the street car and there are so many beautiful Victorian homes that survived Katrina -- Praise God. Here's a pink two-story with decorative columns and banisters along the front porch.
I was so moved to create my blog, Morning Dewdrops. I believe Holy Spirit is asking us to share our gifts and kindnesses, no matter how small, God's gonna use us in a big way. I just know it. He led me to y'all didn't He. My first post was just in September.
It is a good thing the street car goes slow or I wouldn't have been able to get two shots of the same house. Pink Houses, can you imagine, on my first Pink Saturday post -- Two, that's double and that means double portion for anyone reading this too!
Isn't this the cutest -- looks like a gingerbread house; precious. I visited quite a few of your homes in blogland and they are precious too. I left a few messages along the way. I visited Texas, West Virginia, north and south California just to name a few. I can't wait to see more.
The Oak in front of the house is nothing but magnificent. It represents strength, courage, sacrifice and sensitivity -- that's nice to have in our pink heavenly realm. I know everyone possesses these characteristics, but many people don't realize it. It is my prayer they do and I believe we're reaching out around the world subtlely -- I like that -- there's a lot of subtleness in pink. Let's plant that small acorn (seed) and as it grows we'll watch hope subtlely multiply into His Magnificence through Christ. May Jesus touch a needing heart today.
Well our street car ride has ended. I enjoyed it and I hope you did too. Ladies, it has been quite a ride! Loved the company and you can keep the Hibiscus.
