Rejoice in Life

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis



I woke this morning feeling a bit sad and anxious. Some of the verses in my morning reading were in Philippians 4. I decided to create this graphic to lift my spirits.  And it did! I love getting free photos from Unsplash!



We have been enjoying a visit from my aunt and cousin this week. Today we drove up to the Cherokee Indian Reservation to play tourist. While we were at a park by the river, a group of ducks came to visit us. I am sure they were hoping for handouts. They had baby ducklings and they were adorable! My cousin was brave and waded in the chilly water.


This one seemed to be trying to decide whether it should chase me.



On the home front, I found this cute water fountain at Lowes but it was too small for the purpose I had in mind. After a day or two of pondering, my husband and I decided it would work if we used a wine barrel planter, that had been purchased when we were in Florida, and added an unused cement plant stand to give the fountain the needed height. I had my heart set on Geraniums but had no idea it would be difficult to find individual plants. When I finally located some at Wal-Mart, the daily rains had saturated the plants and I didn’t want to put sopping wet plants into my car. The first sunny day that rolled around, I zipped to the store and grabbed the plants before the rains returned.


I am pleased with how it turned out.
