Pink Thursday

3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor.

Isaiah 61:3

My friend over at Shells And Bells - Flowers And Showers inspired me to join w/ others & post something pink on Thursdays in October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Now that October is almost over, I'm finally(!) posting my first one ... better late than never I suppose.

This pic hangs in my corner of the world (or is it the corner of my world?!) ...I've said before that sometimes I just want to jump in & be there! :) ... esp. mid winter here in New England!

Hi Yiota. Thanks! - it's good to be back. That passage is actually from the Book of Isaiah in the Bible.

Hi M24 :) ... I had good intentions but just didn't get "a round tuit" ... I could sure use one of those! :)
