Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty Proverbs 21:5
Choose a good reputation over great riches; for being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold. Proverbs 22:1
A person without self-control is as defenseless as a city with broken-down walls Proverbs 25:28
Pride ends in humiliation while humility brings honour
Proverbs 29:23
Worry weighs a person down;
an encouraging word cheers a person up
Proverbs 12:25


  1. I like the proverbs and the beautiful garden shots.

  2. Lovely pictures Jo and wonderful words to live by.
    Sunny :)

  3. Hi Jo. It was wonderful to hear from you and I left a message for you on my blog.

    It was a pity that we did not meet up while Gaelyn was here but you did have a good reason. :) Maybe the timing will be better next year.

  4. Hello Jo. These are beautiful lush green!
    And thank you for sharing the verses.
    Have a wonderful weekend my friend.



  5. Thank you for the wonderful peek into the garden! It is so beautiful to know that we have been bought back through the actions of the Son."All of creation has been reconciled..." Walk in beauty, and may you be richly blessed in all that you do!

  6. Thanks Jo, for your visit and comment on my place.

    I am glad I "meet" you! Sounds you and your husband have a beautiful and significant life. (Sorry my bad English... sometimes I could not to choose the correct meanings)

    So wise these proverbs, principally this: A person without self-control is as defenseless as a city with broken-down walls Proverbs 25:28.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Best wishes from Sonia, São Paulo, Brazil.

  7. Welcome back ! I just scrolled through your blog to see how your flight was etc. Now you are again in Khartoum for 4 months ! I think you are used now to this life anyway there is no choice. Your birdies look perfect.
    The garden pictures are gorgeous !

  8. Hi Jo, Love your beautiful photos (I assume that they are your garden at home) and the Proverb quotes are PERFECT.... Thanks so much!!!!

    Have a great weekend.

  9. Thanks diane;) seeing you in your garden makes me homesick for mine! Enjoy!

    Hi Sunny;) yes, these Proverbs are very practical, aren't they?

    Thanks Joan;) I popped over to your blog again. Yes, we'll make a definite plan to meet up next time. We were just a day to quick/early for you and Gaelyn!

    Thanks Regina!

    Thanks Mike. I hope you're not feeling lonely and have heard from Gaelyn already.

    Hi Sonia;) Your English is excellent. Hope to see more of you on my blog.

    Thanks Gattina;) the birds are in fine fettle. I will visit Pet Pride tomorrow. Thanks for taking over that meme. Yes, we're used to the Expat lifestyle but it was difficult to leave the green lushness of South Africa and come back the desert! Settling in fine, though.

    Yes, Betsy;) my garden at home which I peek at now and again here on the computer! Bless you.

  10. Oh Jo! It's So Beautiful! It's not how I picture Africa!!Hahaa...

  11. Beautiful proverbs and fantastic pictures. What a beautiful place! I love the lush green surroundings.

    Thank you for the visit, Jo. Have a nice day always.

  12. What version of the Bible are the quotes from? I really like every one of them and your photos are gorgeous. They are peaceful and calming....must be your garden!

  13. Yes, Pat, this is my garden back home. I scroll down to this post and "lose" myself in the images when the heat gets too much (which is now already) The Bible version is my NLT - New Living Translation. Bless you my friend. (((Hugs))) Jo
