Penny the Traveling Clothespin Doll shares her adventures at home and abroad.

The Fountain of Life


Springtime is all about joy and new life.  Buds and blossoms, nests and eggs, sunshine and rain, all bring the promise of fruitfulness to come.  I took this picture of Penny joyously surrounded by the fragrance and beauty of lilacs, bleeding heart, honeysuckle, and a pale pink tulip.  I love all these soft spring colors.



I enjoy the song of the robins, especially noticeable in the early morning and again at evening.  I wish more people would have the joy and freshness of spring life inside of them bursting out like this.




I was reading in Jeremiah 17:13 about how the Lord is the fountain of living waters, yet He had been forsaken by the people.  He said earlier in chapter 2, verse 13 –

“My people have committed two evils:  They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn themselves cisterns – broken cisterns that can hold no water.”



This is rather a hazy picture of a rainstorm in the distance.  Life-giving waters on the way.


Rain, washing the face of the earth and encouraging life and growth to continue.


The morning dawns, the sun is coming, and a new day begins.



“Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”  John 14:6



“Thou wilt show me the path of Life, in Thy presence is fullness of joy, At Thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore.”  Psalm 16:11



“We have put our hope in the Living God.”  1 Timothy 4:10



“…I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.”  Revelation 21:6


Wildlife – this painted turtle was found soaking up the warm spring sunshine.

Farm life –  in our brooder house new baby chicks are growing, and snoozing together under the heat lamp.


Recently my pretty pet turquoise parakeet, Pixie, died at the old age of 14.

A new fellow has come to make friends, this is Nobbles…



And who can not be awed by new life as a wee baby makes his arrival?



“For with you is the fountain of life.”  Psalm 36:9

“For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel;  In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.”  Isaiah 30:15



“Let him who thirsts come.  Whoever desires,  let him take the water of life freely.  Revelation 22:17



 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”  Jeremiah 29:11
