Day 167-Thankful for our tiller, my husband, and God preparing our hearts to plant a beautiful garden!

Saturday morning was cold, after having reached near freezing, but by afternoon it had warmed up and had become a beautiful day! It was a perfect day for tilling the garden. The strawberry plants already have blossoms, and I’m already harvesting asparagus. But the rest of the garden needed to be tilled before we can… Read More Day 167-Thankful for our tiller, my husband, and God preparing our hearts to plant a beautiful garden!

Day 145- Thankful for God’s provision, protection, and peace

Thursday March 19th, 2020 dawned bright and beautiful. The little hotel room that my daughter and I stayed in across from the college was very nice and clean. We enjoyed our stay there, but we had to go pick up my son and all his stuff at the dorms, since COVID-19 prompted university shutdowns. We… Read More Day 145- Thankful for God’s provision, protection, and peace

Day 144- Thankful for a safe, peace-filled trip through the mountains

This morning my daughter and I checked out of our hotel and walked outside, greeted by a smell I haven’t smelled for a long time, freshly-mown grass with spring onion. We got a good start and made it through some preliminary foothills that are big enough in my book to be mountains. I called our… Read More Day 144- Thankful for a safe, peace-filled trip through the mountains

Day 142- Thankful for rest, clear thinking, and God’s help and reassurance

After all the stress of last week, it was bound to happen. Saturday I had no more get-up-and-go. Fortunately I didn’t have anything that had to be done. I rested all day and most of Sunday. Monday morning I was still tired. The Lord reminded me that it would be good if I would fast,… Read More Day 142- Thankful for rest, clear thinking, and God’s help and reassurance

Day 134 – Thankful for sowing and reaping in relationships

Sow with a view to righteousness [that righteousness, like seed, may germinate]; Reap in accordance with mercy and loving-kindness. Break up your uncultivated ground, For it is time to seek and search diligently for the Lord [and to long for His blessing] Until He comes to rain righteousness and His gift of salvation on you.… Read More Day 134 – Thankful for sowing and reaping in relationships

Day 127 – Thankful for stories with a lesson

My youngest daughter loves stories and drama and fun. She is a great storyteller, and and she loves to listen to stories told by other great storytellers. These photos are screen shots of a video I took of her performing her illustrated storytelling in Chapel on Wednesday. She likes to do imitations of other accents… Read More Day 127 – Thankful for stories with a lesson

Day 125 – Thankful for time spent in community, for beautiful days and pain relievers

Sunday morning was definitely a little harder to get up. My granddaughter got overtired  yesterday and had trouble getting to sleep when bedtime came around. But, when I told her that we were going to be late for Sunday school, she immediately got her breakfast ready to go. I was glad to see that it… Read More Day 125 – Thankful for time spent in community, for beautiful days and pain relievers
