Skywatch Friday Thoughts and More

Recently we were in Tulsa, my home town, for a Gaither Homecoming concert.  We took a day to visit a few places I have not visited in a very long time.  One of our stops was the Tulsa Rose Garden.  Scroll down to my Wordless Wednesday post to see the flowers.  This is the greenhouse located on the grounds.  The main building is a mansion built in 1919.  There is a carriage house and this green house located immediately behind the mansion.  I cannot imagine living at this scale.  The Rose Garden, Woodward Park, and the mansion make up a very special place, prepared for the enjoyment of the citizens of Tulsa.
I am reminded that there is a place prepared for me and it is far beyond my imagination.  My Creator, Savior, and Heavenly Father have prepared it for me.  As beautiful as the grounds of the Rose Garden are, they will pale in comparison to that place that I will spend eternity.  For that reason, I don't want to get adjusted to this world.  The Gaithers say it much better than I.  Enjoy and have a blessed week-end.


  1. What a great trip. I know both the Tulsa Rose Garden and the Gaither Concert were great fun. That greenhouse is an especially attractive one. genie

  2. Way cool and I love the video this week. Right on the money.

    Have a terrific day and weekend ahead. :)

  3. Great shot. A classic picture really of Tulsa. Right on the other side of the greenhouse is the children's garden that Heather and I built earlier this year.

  4. Before reading your description, I knew it is a greenhouse. It so huge. And what a perfect day to see those big clouds.

    Blessings and to God be the Glory!

  5. «Louis» remembers visiting the Tulsa Rose Garden when he lived in Oklahoma City. He always found Tulsa to be a prettier town than OKC and always enjoyed visiting there.

  6. Captured beautifully!

    Late visiting from SW, hope you can peek at my Skywatch entry when you get a chance. Thanks.
