An attempt to declare the Glory of God for what He has chosen to do with our lives. A legacy to leave to my children in the telling of it.

My Victory Garden

I planted a little victory garden ~ a victory over death garden. As painstaking as it was to stand at the seed display at Farm and Fleet a couple of weeks ago and pick out nearly every blue flower they carried, I did it. Trent's favorite color was blue. Not that blue flowers will bring him back, but blue flowers will remind me over and over again of the victory that we will one day have in Christ. Those blooms will remind me that death has no victory; that separation by death is only for a short while. They will remind me of God's beauty that is continuously poured out on His children. They will remind me that life goes on and can be beautiful, even in pain. They will remind me of Trent and how much I love him.

I tried posting on here the other day, but like you said, Blogger had some issues! I love this idea! I hope you are able to find moments of joy in your day, it looks like you do with the farm stuff going on. You are in my prayers daily. It is funny to me how someone I have never met has touched me deeply! Continue to write, it is touching and beautiful and healing! Hubby's grandma kept an amazing journal from the time she was in her late teens, all the way through until the day Grandpa died unexpectantly. I wish she would have kept writing. It is what inspired him to write a family devotional on our family memories.
