How great Thou art…

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;

Desert Rose 1

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Desert Rose 2

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.

Desert Rose 3

When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Desert Rose 4

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.

Desert Rose 5

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

Desert Rose 6

Have a Blessed Sunday, everybody…and A HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all daddies.

P.S. The flower in my garden has bloomed again the other night. I have posted on it a number of times…but if any of you have missed those earlier posts, you can click here, here or here, should you be interested in finding out more about it.

    Thanks…and give thanks always for the many Blessings He has bestowed upon us. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. wow.. the flower is nice..
    scary at first.. lol =P

    Ya…and very nice fragrance. But this time and the previous time, only one bloom. Used to bloom a lot – around 10…or at least 4 or 5!

  5. Happy Papa’s Day..Whoa lovely flower you have got there and you are pretty excellent at photography. Phew love all the pixz especially the ones with some water drops on them. Cukup betul betul awesome. tQ.

    Thank you. *Blush! Blush! That one fully-auto digicam, just press the button. Luck good, photo will turn out nice. Luck not so good, just delete from memory. Hahahahaha!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Only problem I had…the flower was not very high up so I had to bend down a bit and my “watermelon” kept getting in the way. Hahahahaha!!!! Not too happy with the last one, the rest o.k. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Happy Father’s Day, Cikgu Arthur.

    Thanks, Deb…and the same to your daddy and your hubby! Have a nice Sunday!

  7. Lol, i think asian fathers will stop their kids immediately~

    The modern ones today will be fine with that. I wouldn’t mind one bit…but thank goodness, my girl did not do that to me. Hahahahaha!!!!

  8. So is this the hymn u started singing in the middle of the nite when your desert rose was blooming? That would be interesting! LOL! Btw, hope you have a wonderful father’s day :)! although ours is in September. Is it always on June 20th every yr?

    Thanks. Over here, it’s the 3rd Sunday in June while Mother’s Day is the 2nd Sunday in May. I thought that’s international?

  9. woww. so niceeee. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY TO YOU!!

    Thanks, Fie. You’re having a ball of a time in Kuching? Coming back Tuesday, eh?

  10. Beautiful.. u actually sat there waiting for it to bloom? Cool..

    Happy Daddy’s Day to you Stp ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks, and the same to your hubby. This flower’s supposed to bloom once a year only at midnight but mine has bloomed a number of times already this year, just that these last two times – only one flower. By morning, already closed, drooping…and will eventually wither away.

  11. Happy Fathers Day to you ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thank you…and hope your hubby had a great one too…with you and little kucing! LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. Nice Flower. Happy Father’s Day STP!

    Yes, it is. Well, hope you have a great one, Pete. How was yours? Didn’t have to cook yourself, I hope. LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. how long did it take to get from bud to full-bloom stage?

    I took the first one at around 7 something…and the last one at around 11. People say that it will only bloom at around midnight – thank goodness, it was a bit earlier. LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. happY father day to you.

    nice flower! you are so patient to wait it bloom ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks. Hope you did not get more underwear again as your present! LOL!!! Well, good things comes to those who wait…. so just have to be patient, lor! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. Wah… nice shots. I wonder how long it took you to wait for the flower to bloom. I’m a novice in photography ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think the last one could have been better… All in all, I think four hours. I’m not really into photography, just snap anything of interest (mainly food) here, there and everywhere to post in my blog. Is this your first time here? I seem to have seen you somewhere before…but never mind, most welcome! Do drop by again – I’ll link you in my blogroll.

  16. Wow…u really waited for the flower to bloom..sweat**if me sure i pengsan there…kakakak..and i bet the flower reluctant to bloom seeing me being so impatient

    Anyway, Happy Father’s Day to you!!

    Thanks. Well, you will just have to wait if you want to see it bloom…cos in the morning, it would have withered and you will not get the chance to see it at all.

  17. beautiful flower. The sprite ads is so funny! Poor daddy.

    Happy belated father’s day to you.

    Thanks. Ya…very unique flower. I also had a good laugh when I saw the ad! ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. This looks like the ‘keng far’ or night blooming cereus, a cactus? It is my favourite flower. I wish I can grow it. Where can I buy this plant?

    Yup…if you click the link to my previous posts, I did mention that that’s the flower, or at least that’s what I think it is. I don’t know where my missus got it from and according to her, her friends’ did not survive…or it would not flower at all…and while people claim that it will only flower once a year at midnight, ours has flowered a number of times already this year alone.

  19. wow so lovely… are these your shots???

    Yes…I’ve this flower in my garden. So nice but unfortunately, it only blooms at night and withers away in the morning.
