I had a lovely time
in the garden this morning.
As I was picking beans I was reminded
how the Lord watches over the little sparrow
and how if He cares so much for the sparrow
how much greater does He care for me.
I'm not a religious person
but I do believe in the Lord Jesus
and I cannot get through life without
His help and reassuring love.
Here I am blanching the beans
(3 minutes in boiling water)
I've been praying over my garden this year
because it means more this year
than most years.
Why, because we need this year to have
as much normalcy, as possible.
Cooling them off from the boiling
in a bath of ice water.
Draining off the water.
As I was picking the beans
I was reminded not just to give
my worries over to Him,
but to give my fears over to Him, too.
Our minds can easily wander
and we can so easily have our minds
get scrambled up with negative thoughts.
They come without our trying . . .
but again we can call on His name
and give it all to Him.
Drying a bit before bagging up.
He saved us by going to the cross,
but He also can save us every day,
just by turning our heart & mind over to Him
and giving Him our burdens.
He is wonderful . . .Hallelujah!
Ready for the Freezer.

If you are still reading,
just let me say . . .
I'm not writing this to be preachy
I'm just sharing with you the time I spent
picking beans with the Lord.
I've been so heartbroken
and filled with sorrows . . .
But there He was in the garden with me.
Covering me with His love.
I love that He is so available . . .
anytime day or night.
Thank you all for your prayers
and loving thoughts.
We are grateful and appreciate
Your blogging sister,
