Tiarella and iris







The Tiarella or foam flower is blooming as well as the some iris.


"Our struggle is not about being forgiven, it's about feeling forgiven. Because we are so accustomed to a performance-based approach to forgiveness, it is difficult to feel forgiven for the damaging mistakes of the past."

This is from James Bryan Smith in the book "Embracing the Love of God", and I can relate.

In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. Ephesians 1:7-8
