Saturday in the 'burbs

Today I had some kind of plans but not really... I went to Grace Centers of Hope for their Men & Women on a mission... The people and other volunteers went around Pontiac (the city it's located in) and cleaned up trash and then afterwards there was a BBQ. I really just wanted to go and hang out... so I brought cupcakes (96) of them to go with their BBQ. It was a nice time of fellowship.

Then afterwards I went to Cranbrook. Beautiful day, I had intentions to take TONS of pictures but I got kind of caught up in the beauty of it all and was too busy talking (to God) to take too many pictures. There are a few... you can read my captions if you would like.
This was just beautiful, I couldn't believe that God would paint such a picture for me.
I walked for awhile before I got to this wall. It kind of symbolized the wall that I feel like I can't get over lately.
I've never seen yellow iris before. I'm no expert in iris, but I thought they were pretty, plus yellow reminds me of Phyllis.
There were two turtles, then only one (towards the center). This pond was FULL of turtles! I wanted to jump in and swim... well, not really.
This tree from far away looked like 3 trees all intertwined, I thought it was cool and it reminded me how the lives of those we love are intertwined in our hearts.

I loved that tree, kind of all by itself.

I just thought this would be a cool pic

So purty
I'll say it again, DAISIES ARE MY FAVORITE!!
Today's Biblegateway verse of the day... God's Word never fails.
"In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?"

You color my world, Margie! Daisies are the best, then tulips, delphiniums, sunflowers, peonies, .... dandelions too.

Hugs ... and have a blessed Sunday.
