Thankful Thursday

The radish are up

This year is my year to have flowers for the gardens.
To my sweet delight there was a woman who did a seed exchange with me.
She wanted food seed, she had flowers to trade. 
This is the collection she sent me
In this quiet time of days finding joy in the living seed is a rest for my soul.
I am happiest when studying, looking at and or planting seed.
The plots are almost all turned now.

The peas (sugar snap) are reaching out for the delight of day.

Here are bachelor buttons below

Two days ago the sky was a blaze yet in an instant it was less so. It passed so quickly. So I find looking out and up has the instant moments that can not be replayed.
Thankkful for that I am slowed to let them come. I am so blessed. God loves me. Me. HE loves you, and knowing this creates in me a love toward you as well.
This amazing blog has languished a bit.
Maybe there is more wisdom in silence at times.When a mouse sneaks into a home it can be unseen but you will know when it is there. One must be stealth to capture and relocate it.
I never did like kill traps. So stealth I sit. Silent watching. I have lost the ability to leave anything out on the counter so to speak. It might just get spoiled.
Pearls well as a jeweler you can tell a real pearl by rubbing it on your teeth. Once you understand it  you will never be able to be confused by a fraud again. You will ever know the real pearl.

I am so disappointed and so discouraged that my absence is so pronounced. So many things have occurred in the last several months that I really do not feel like my old self. Sorrow and apathy have gripped me. Where did my heart go?

Thankfully HE knows where I am and He knows who I am. HE knows where I am going.

I love you....
I say with in this last year I just havent felt the same about anything and it makes me kind of sad and I need to get back into blogging and being more faithful about reading others blogs...and yes sometimes silence is a big blessing! I cant wait to see the pictures of your "flowers" that you planted, I love flowers and the beautiful colors they give us to enjoy and you'd never know how beautiful they are when you plant that little seed, Uh...that just got me to thinking about when the seed of CHRIST has been planted in us, so small and plain then like a flower we turn into this beautiful graceful flower with colors of life all around us, the Holy Spirit brought that to my mind, I know he did....

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
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
