On the "TAIL" of Peter Rabit

Have you ever wondered ?
What transpires in the garden
when you are away? ....

The paths of their way are turned aside;
they go to nothing, and perish.
                                                        Job 6:17-19

There hath no temptation taken you
but such as is common to man: ....

....but God is faithful, who will not suffer
you to be tempted above that ye are able; ....

....but will with the temptation also make
a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it
                                                         1 Corinthians 10:13

Our soul is escaped as a bird
 out of the snare of the fowlers:
the snare is broken,
and we are escaped
                          Psalm 124: 7 of them shall not fall on the ground
without your Father knowing it...
                                                                           Mathew 10:29

Be sober, be vigilant;
 because your adversary
 the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking
whom he may devour:
                                1 Peter 5:8


And a man shall be as an
hiding place from the wind,
and a covert from the tempest;
as rivers of water in a dry place,
as the shadow of a great
rock in a weary land
                               Isaiah 32:1-3

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide
                                   under the shadow of the Almighty

Psalm 91:1


 Verily, verily, I say unto you,
He that entereth not by the door
into the sheepfold, but climbeth up
some other way, the same is a thief
 and a robber.....

But he that entereth in by the door
is the shepherd of the sheep....

To him the porter openeth;
and the sheep hear his voice:
and he calleth his own sheep by
name, and leadeth them out.
                                                            John: 10

His children are far from safety,
 and they are crushed in the gate,
                                      neither is there any to deliver them.                                            
 Job 5:3-5

I will enter Thy gates with Thanksgiving...
                                                                                                Psalm 100:4

There is no soundness
in my flesh because of thine anger;
 neither is there any rest in
 my bones because of my sin.
Psalm 38:2-4

This is my rest for ever:
 here will I dwell;
                                for I have desired it.                              
 Psalm 132:13-15

And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast,
thou, and thy son, and thy daughter,
and thy manservant,
and thy maidservant, and the Levite,
the stranger, and the fatherless,
and the widow, that are within thy gates.
                                                          Deuteronomy 16:15


Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.
                                     3 John 1:2

  1. Oh my goodness Linnie...this was a wonderful post! Thank you!!!!


  2. Oh Linnie my dear,

    I LOVE PETER and his friends and I cannot tell you how YOUR STAGING (soooooooooooo cute!!!!!) was a timely one for me today. In all of God's gentle creatures, I always find solace for HE cares so much for each one, even the slightest of them all. YOU PERFECTLY set the stage to give an even broader picture of the dangers AND THE MERCIES of life. Peter is absolutely adorable and you are even equipped with the little mouse with the pea in her mouth!!! AND YOUR GARDEN AND POTTING SHED ARE so right on.

    THANK YOU FOR VISITING TODAY! Enjoy a splendid week of READING and worshipping in the corners of your heart my dearest. Anita

  3. Thank you for the post, the Bible verses and the pictures. You put together a wonderful story and the staging is really very thoughtful and inspirational.
    Mrs. J.

  4. I loved the photographs as well as the lovely scriptures you chose. This was a very uplifting and poetic post. Thank you for sharing it with us. :)

  5. Linnie you are a real story-teller!
    I loved this sweet post.
    Who wouldn't want Peter Rabbit and that cute mouse in their garden?!
    Beautiful scriptures as always..
    Thanks for linking up to Heart & Home.
    love and blessings..Trish

  6. Hi Linnie,
    Beautiful post.
    It was nice of peter and friends to help you illustrate the scriptures you choose to share.I LOVE the white cat.
    Have a good week
    God Bless

  7. What a delightful post! Who doesn't love Peter and his talented creator? I so enjoyed reading the scriptures along with the cute pictures. Thanks for bringing a smile to my face.

  8. Dear Linnie,

    How adorable can you get? You keep outdoing yourself with sweetness! :) Peter certainly had his share of scrapes, and I think that you've captured them all perfectly.

    Thanks for all the links, which we'll be enjoying for the next few days!



  9. Hi Linnie,
    I haven't been by in a while and I'm so happy to find you linked up to Trish's party!
    I loved your post filled with Peter Rabbit and his friends! I also love Beatrix Potter. But I love the Word of God most of all! Thank you for sharing in a very sweet and whimsical way.


  10. Linnie, Linnie! You win FIRST place for originality, charm, and joy for this post! It is simply marvelous. Peter! Peter!, may you live on forever in our books and gardens and hearts!
    I can't believe you found "The Tale of Beatrix Potter", I have been searching for years... now it is on YOU TUBE???!!! Hurrah! Thank you for my inspiration this day, you are a treasure.

  11. PS. Did I ever tell you that I hid a bit of trivia on the fox page of "Bushky Bushybottom" concerning B.P.? It was my dedication to her. There are 5 "clues" hidden amongst the paintings. See if you can find them. Jeri

    1. Oh my goodness Jeri! I did not know that! Headed there now to look! Thanks for sharing this💗

  12. How wonderful this all is. That rabbit is SO real looking, and all your props and goodies and books are charming! I hope that you have been to Hilltop , Beatrix's home in the Lake District. I think you might want to stay forever!

  13. Oh Linnie, where did you ever find
    that handsome, cooperative, genuine
    article rabbit? He really befits
    the tale, as do those beautiful
    scripture verses..what insight you
    have. If you don't mind sharing,
    I would love to get one of those
    delightful rabbits for our new
    Grandaughter. Many thanks for the
    Beatrix Potter inclusions... just
    made my day.
    A blessed weekend to you and yours.

  14. Cute isn't enough of a word to describe your piece. I will wish to visit again and to view the videos on a larger screen which you so carefully included. I appreciate the message too, in the Scripture. My married daughters will like this when I tell them.
    I like looking through the window of our front parlor at dusk and see the rabbit that skirts along the edge of the wood. It is a timid thing. I added rabbits to a schoolgirl sampler this spring - that were not on the original chart - they suggested themselves to me.
    Thank you for the refreshment.
    Karen A.

  15. You are so pleasantly creative and I kept a smile on my lips as I read your delightful post with God's Word and the photos. Fascinating how you do all of that!

    I look forward to sharing the Beatrix Potter clips with my daughters in the days to come.

    I have been thinking about your lovely pantry recently. It sticks in my mind as one of the best I have ever seen.

  16. Dear Linnie,

    How adorable your rabbit in the garden photographs are! That rabbit is so realistic! We love your interpretation of Peter Rabbit and the scriptures you chose to go along with it!

    Your friends,
    Diane and daughter Sarah and Tillie Tinkham the seamstress mouse at the Corgyncombe Courant

  17. Oh my Linnie this is sooooooo nice...
    Blessings my dear!
    Hugs also, & whisker kisses from Miss Lilly
    Soon my friend.

I'm not sure as to how long ago you became aquainted at my blog -but dear one I am glad you did! For this here was such a lovely and fun post to read/look at. Thank you! I hope to visit again and may you visit me again! PS- Your garden is LOVELY!!

  20. Hi Linnie,

    Hope you still visit me as well!
    Happy 4th of July!

  21. HEY!! I KNEW I HAD SEEN THIS BEFORE, but for some reason this post just popped up as being a new post!

    HELLO THERE DEAR FRIEND! How are you? I think this has to be one of my favorite posts ever. You have staged THE STORY so perfectly!!! LOVE TO YOU! Anita

  22. Wonderful post!
    Beatrix Potters books were my favorite as a child.
    I love Peter Rabbit.
    Hugs from Argentina.

  23. Linnie, I was just holding little Ezra angel today and re reading his little note from Heaven/ Wanted to thank you again for such a heartwarming gift. I will always treasure him. He sits atop my studio table along with a little felted Jemima donkey made by Penny. I see him every day. Hope all is well with you!

  24. My Dear Linnie,
    I have been away so so long ...and I come here to find the most precious, heart-stirring post! Along with the best version of Miss Potter ever! I have heard Jeri tell of it but had never seen it. Your collection of Beatrix Potter books is quite impressive...I see we all share such an admiration for her work and life.
    The scriptures were so beautifully entwined in the story. Such a clever comparison, dear girl!
    I miss you terribly, my friend!
    Hoping all is well,

  25. Thank you for reposting this, Linnie. I had not seen it before. What a wonderful way to share God's word! And that bunny sure looks realistic to me. I thought some of those scenes were a real rabbit!

  26. Linnie,
    Yes, you do have quite the imagination! What a wonderful post-Lydia and I just loved seeing this on dear Beatrix's birthday:-)
    Lots of love,
    Suzanne & Lydia

  27. Sweet Linnie! What a beautiful, creative tale of Peter Rabbit woven with Scripture! I just love every adorable photo. That video of Hilltop bring back fond memories of our trip there in 2010. I love the comparison shots of the real Hilltop and as seen in Beatrix' artwork. Love Peter cozy in hospital bed at the end of his adventure! Just brilliant of you! ♡♡♡

  28. Dear sweet Linnie.. love everything about this post! You have such a beautiful way of bringing such JOY! Thank you for sharing the life around you along with Peter Rabbit! Your many links were a delight to watch on this anniversary of Beatrix Potter's birthday! Thank you sweet friend!!

  29. Dearest Linnie ~~~ what a joy of a post! I'm so thrilled it resurfaced from 2012. I'll have to return to look at the video links, but my goodness, you are so clever with your photographs. What an imagination you have. I must make some time to trundle along through more of your older entries soon! Thank you so much ~~~ Deb in Wales
