This is my new favorite flower- it grows on a vine and the vine I saw was growing up a tree. I didn't have my camera to take a picture of the whole vine, but I broke off one flower so I could bring it home and identify it, which I haven't done, yet. Any ideas?

Also, I've been thinking alot about being "broken" and what that meant in Jesus' life and what it means in mine. I was listening to this song today in the car and liked the words:


I was fallen from the first

I am not a stranger to the darkness

Walked the road of prodigals

And crawled upon my knees to You

From the ashes and the dirt

You fashion beauty from the wounds

I’ve carried

Nothing lost, and all redeemed in You

Beautifully broken in Your eyes

You see the man my sins disguise

You took my place

You saved my life

Miraculous love, sweet sacrifice

Beautifully broken

You were beautifully broken

So You see me as Your own

Holy in the light of Your redemption

By the blood and by the thorn

We’re called to life

In this weakness

You find strength

You find sinners who are saints

And I find amazing grace

In this sacrifice

In this death is life

I have the same flowers growing on vines in my backyard - that climb two tall pine trees. They fall off in the back yard and on our trampoline a lot. I don't know what they are called.

I love the words of that song - what is it? So far, you haven't steered me wrong when it comes to music.
