This Bud’s for You

Without other bloggers

to read

to like

to follow

It would be a lonely site

And would sound

kind of


So I post this poem

to thank you


your visits


your words

For without each other

we’d be



never heard!


PS – I appreciate every one of you!

Blessings ~ Wendy

PS – Part II

This week I found out I now have 200 people subscribed as followers. Thank you!  I also follow most of you, too.  As long as my computer filter says you pass the test – then I usually follow.  It matters not, to me, if we come from different faiths or lifestyles.  My desire is to share creation, as I see it, with you. And I love learning about how others view this world and want to respect that. One of the most important lessons I want to teach my children is to learn to agree to disagree with gentleness  and respect.  If you ever want to know more about what I believe, you can find it in the Gospel of John in the Bible… or ask me.  If you don’t – that’s okay too.  But I hope I can help you see and appreciate, even more, the beauty in nature all around us.  It has its own story to tell!

  1. Isn’t it funny to think that without readers, words are hollow? Nice way of putting things, Wendy. Also appreciate the ‘gentle respect’ theme too – so important to learn from each other, to appreciate our differences, to allow for others’ ideas, thoughts, inspirations…

  2. The best thing about blogging is all the people you meet!! People you wouldn’t meet otherwise, it’s so fantastic. 🙂 Strangers who become friends, who inspire and encourage! Blessings to you, sweet Wendy.

    1. I agree, meeting new people from all over the world is one of the best parts of blogging. I just love seeing new faces and new flags! I appreciate your visits. 🙂

  3. The bright colors of those flowers livened up this rainy afternoon! I also love to think about the people I’ve “met” through blogging, from all walks of life, and I love having the freedom to think on paper, along with the honor of having others read those thoughts! I am thankful that I found your blogs, and I cherish the encouragement you have given me through your posts and your comments! Please keep sharing as God leads!

    1. I am so glad to have met bloggers, such as you, who appreciate creation and enjoy sharing their personal faith with others. Everyone has something interesting to bring to the table!

  4. What a sweet and lovely gift to us, Wendy–thank you, dear heart! It truly is the readers who make this a rich adventure in sharing, and growing–I love our community! God bless you BIG–love, Caddo

    1. I would have started blogging sooner if I had known how supportive our community is. Yet, my children needed me more then. Now they can help much more with everything around home…including pointing out interesting things to photograph outside!
      I really appreciate your friendship and your blog, Caddo!
