In 1974, the Anderson Garden Club Council award Mrs. Blair the Most Improved yard. Now, fast forward to 2014, and they used her yard for their calendar. One of her favorite quotations is, "One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides." Imagine all those years of working, watching, and anticipating. Patience.

I can honestly say she is in love with the Lord. She's rooted in the Word, which is why she's able to spread the Lord's goodness. She journals in her Open Windows for two hours every morning, telling God about the previous day and her thoughts. I stood amazed today as she showed me seventeen years of journals to God, "I pour out my soul to God in these journals. He is the best psychiatrist there is. I write the good and the bad. Someone asked me 'what if someone reads those times that weren't so good?' I said GOOD." If you know her, you can hear her say this.

I'm privileged to know and be loved by Ann Blair. I've been blessed by her flowers and her goodness more times than I can count. She SHOWED the Holy Spirit to me as child, teenager, young mother, and continues to do so today. I've never met a person who didn't feel the same,
Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will grant you his blessing. 10 For the Scriptures say
|Ann Blair & her 10 grandchildren|
and see many happy days,
keep your tongue from speaking evil
and your lips from telling lies.
11 Turn away from evil and do good.
Search for peace, and work to maintain it. I Peter 3:9-11
