The Giving Tree

We have a giving tree.
It has been resting for some time now.
When the children came home from school I met them at the driveway.
Dash with great delight declared "the giving tree gave us some cool stuff mom!"
So I came to see the gifts.
For many many years periodically we find things under the tree.
Often things I have prayed or asked for.

Oh It just now a cured to me!
Oh my goodness...I was wondering what was with the mini blinds?
I prayed for some after one of you blogged about using them as plant markers in the garden!
HAHAHAHh oh God is so fun!
Thank you sweet giving tree and the roots that run deep through it.

The file frames...yep!
I needed some in the old hay-worth in the garage!
I have a lot of dead filing to sort through and yes I was missing file hangers.
It is my goal to go through the expired tax documents and discard as in shed them.
We have records dating 30 years back in some things like employment It is really fascinating to see the seasons of life as I go through clearing them out.
By the way...I TOLD NO ONE of the requests for these things. 
cool friend to give me such an awesome tree
post script! oh funny funny silly joy. I need a new one for the master bathroom and these are too long! Extra for the garden! Oh a good smile stretches my cheeks!

As we all delighted in the mystery over the tree we turned around to find this on the door knob.
We visited a friends church on Easter Sunday for he was in the performance.
He and my man have been friends over 30 years...he played an old man! ha!
Funny to us anyway.
So the kids and I had to leave right after they got in to go get the allergy shots for Dash...
Yep! Cookies to enjoy on the road.
Speaking of gifts this is what I walk out my front door too!
I'll get a post on harvesting poppy's up over at the BEE BLISS BLOG.
So pretty! The kids wanted to walk to the bus on their own (it is just 5 houses down on the corner) as long as they stay together and back off from the curb if a car comes, I let them.
Of course I had to harvest poppy pods this morning don't ya know (to keep an eye on them).
Once I see them on the bus I relax.
so by 9 a.m. the poppies harvested I sit now finished my bowl of kashi and refreshed my bones with a good rest . Out to the gardens after I switch loads of laundry.
Hope the beauty of the day envelops you.

Such a nice post.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
