Sweet Sunday Blessings!

Do you see what I see?
Look again...


Look past all the flowers......
It is around the tub and ferns...

Actually it is in the tub.....
Do you see it now?

Can you see all the white on top of the tub?
It looks like a cloud......

Yes, my tub over-flows with bubbles...
Tons of silky..
light as air...
sparkly, shiny bubbles.....

I do believe this little rusty guy looks guilty...
He looks as if he just dumped bubble bath in my fountain...
Look close...
I think he is smiling....
possibly  singing...

I would have to admit when My Grandson came running in shouting..
"Nana,come look at the tub!"...

I did not know what to expect...
I thought...
Oh, no....
It has run dry....
 "it is overflowing with bubbles!"

The last thing I expected to see after adding bleach earlier
to keep my water clear
was bubbles....
I mean after all, 
since when did bleach....
which is supposed to sanitize....
cause bubbles?
I will have to admit...
the bubbles attracted us to the tub in a new way...
Oh, we enjoy the sound of the water coming through the old well faucet..
But Today...
we  enjoyed the bubbles...

 And so it goes with each of our lives as a believer....
Jesus comes in and washes away our sins...
cleanses us...
makes us whole...

And in return....
Our life is to be like bubbles....
touching others....
This reminds me of  an old hymn.....

Its bubbling, Its Bubbling
Its bubbling in my soul
There's singing and laughter 
since Jesus made me whole..
Folks don't understand it...
Nor can I keep it Quiet
Its bubbling bubbling bubbling bubbling
bubbling day and night!...... 

"Live your life in such a way 
that those who don't know God
come to know God 
because they know you"
Author Unknown

Overflow this week and touch others with your life.....
Let others see Jesus in you!

"May the Lord make your love increase and overflow
for each other and everyone else,
Just as ours does for you...

I Thessalonians 3:12 NIV

  7. Oh, what fun --- an unexpected delight! Our Heavenly Daddy loves to treat us to things like that. I can just hear Him laughing with joy. He sings and dances over us, and I'm sure He laughs with us, too.

    A wonderful post. Sending blessings from here on the farm.

  8. that places with your eyes. so wild. if you do not have a lot of neighbors i guess you could take a bath out there. there is a show i use to watch on Netflix - it was set in Australia & they had a tub out in the cow field & the ladies would take a bath out there when it was a gorgeous night. i bet it would heaven. so relaxing. ( :

  14. Oh what a sweet post. What beautiful words to come from such a funny situation. I love the faucet and the poor little man that go accused. That really was a lot of bubbles.

  22. Hi Patty! I have missed your sweet posts! I love this one! And I love your old claw-foot tub with the old water pump. I discovered the new "splashless" bleach will make bubbles. It does seem quite odd. LOL! ~~~I'm Carolyn from the old blog Simple Southern Cottage. I can no longer access my old blogs and Blogger will not help me whatsoever. And it's all because of issues between Google/Blogger and Yahoo. I finally just gave up and started a new blog. I am in the process of moving old posts to my new one. I hope you will visit me . myfarmhouseblue.wordpress.com

  24. We used to sing, "My cup's full and running over".

    That's a magnificent rusty tub.

  25. Hi Patty, this is just beautiful. Love the tub of bubbles and the lesson you share with it touches my heart. I'll be singing that little hymn now the rest of the night. LOL
    Your pics are so pretty.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekemd.
    Hugs and Blessings sweet friend.

  26. What a lovely post. What caused the bubbles in your tub. I love it!!!
