From the Garden …          

It’s definitely a happy season … planting, watering, weeding, tying up vines, harvesting … and we’ve been doing plenty of it! 🙂

While our dear friends were here visiting {from Kansas and New York} we put a little time into the garden. Many hands make light work! As a team we tied up cucumber vines and tomato plants {a big thanks to the guys for making a run to Lowe’s on their way home from a long morning out, to get us some much-needed string!}, weeded, watered, and harvested the first of the cucumbers, lettuce, and blackberries.

I’ve already picked Feverfew flowers 3 times within 2 weeks. This year the plant really exploded with flowers and spread out a lot {it’s practically a bush now!}. Loving all of this new life, and abundant harvests!

God is so good! One of the reasons I absolutely love gardening so much {and just being outdoors doing any kind of work in general}, is because I am continually amazed at my Father’s creation. How a tiny seed should have to be buried, and die, in order to bring forth life – and wow, that life looks pretty amazing once it pops up out of the ground in a form of a stem with leaves and roots and flowers. I love taking a walk and just listening to the birds sing – always so happy and cheerful! Everything around us in creation points us back to Christ and His amazing work! Oh how I love it. 🙂 To God alone be glory, praise and honor.

Psalm 14:1 “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.”

Psalm 118:23 “This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.”
