Saturday Snapshot: Spring at The Cove

Spring at The Cove

One of the most beautiful times of the year at The Cove is spring. The flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and the trails are perfect for hiking. It’s a time to be outside and enjoy God’s beautiful creation.

The tulips planted by the entrance are showing their bright spring colors.

As you drive through, you are met with beauty and reminded of God’s most perfect creation. “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.”(John 1:3)

When you enter The Cove, you can leave the world behind and have a time of rest.  “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30) 

The beautiful trails and creeks lining our property offer great opportunities for hiking or just sitting on a bench while you listen to the birds sing and the water bubbling over the rocks.

As you head towards our chapel, you will see even more beautiful flowers along the way. The chapel is open for visitors and is a wonderful place to come and sit for a while to pray.

To end today’s blog, we’ve included a special poem about Spring that was  written by Quinn Graham (son of Will Graham) right before Easter.  Quinn is 12 years old and loves to write psalms. May this “Psalm of Spring” bless you!

Spring is Right Around the Corner

“The cold winter winds are almost over
The winter snow all gone
The trees start sprouting their green leaves
The nice warm air is almost here
Easter is also right around the corner
Soon we will celebrate the day that Jesus rose from the dead
We will all rejoice
Because Jesus is not dead
Spring is right around the corner
The day of life waking up
Just as Jesus rose from the dead
Animals start coming out of hibernation
And plants start sprouting
The wonderful spring life is almost upon us.”

Billy Graham Has Finished Well: A Tribute by Quinn Graham

This week has brought many beautiful and sweet tributes to honor the life and legacy of Billy Graham. One of the most heart-warming comes from one of his great grandchildren, 12 year-old Quinn Graham.

Billy Graham Has Finished Well: By Quinn Graham

 

It’s an old picture of Daddy Bill

He is preaching to hundreds, maybe even thousands of people.

With his eyes looking straight at you,

And his Bible in his left hand.

He is pointing to you with his right hand

And preaching the Word of God to you.

This black and white picture

Shows Daddy Bill doing what he loved to do

What God called him to do:

Preaching the Truth of Jesus Christ.

We have lost a loved one,

Loved by millions

Because he loved millions –

Billy Graham.

 

He has done an inspiring job of preaching God’s Word.

He never took a break from God’s Word,

He never gave up on trying to reach people across the world.

He went everywhere to preach the Word of God . . .

If there was one person across the world who didn’t know the Word of God

Billy Graham would do anything to get him saved,

Because one person saved could mean that his whole family gets    saved.

No matter what happened to Billy Graham

He would never give up on God’s purpose for him;

He has preached in person to over 200 million people.

That means 1/30th of the whole world has heard him . . .

Today we dedicate this day to Daddy Bill,

For he is now with his Lord and Savior,

For he has finished well . . .

Saturday Snapshot — A Psalm About God’s Purpose For You

Twelve-year-old Quinn Graham (Billy Graham’s great-grandson) is at it again.  Now a published author (Quinn’s Book of Psalms was published in December 2017 and gifted by him to his parents for Christmas), he’s kicking off the new year with a psalm titled, God’s Purpose For You.

Won’t it be interesting to see how God continues to use Quinn’s gifts in the years to come!

Print the psalm now.

In case you were wondering, Quinn does give you permission to print and share as God leads you.

Have a blessed weekend, friends!
