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.

This is What it's All About

I saw it as fitting punishment for a capital offense for three young kiddos, but then along came Rob with his happy, chipper attitude and saw it for what it really was. "This is what it's all about" he said. And (once I quit grumbling about my beautiful sweet little blessed children and the cursed ground that keeps on growing weeds) I saw it too. This really is what it's all about. Just being. Being together, working together, growing together, loving and trusting God together.

Smiling little buggers. It's hard to stay mad at them for very long.

Yep! that's my kind of fun with family. Gets the job done, too.

Your garden looks great and your kids look happy. You're building strong bonds when you work together. :D

Something the Lord had to teach me a few years ago is to simply BE in this day. "This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it." He had to teach me how to "be" in the day He made.... not thinking about my yesterdays nor about my tomorrows. Simply Be in this day and rejoice in it. It's a lesson I forget lots of times, but always try to get back to. Being in the day He made is where I find my peace. I can't do anything about my yesterdays nor my tomorrows anyway!

Have a wonderful day!

Your garden is really big and it looks great. I have a hard time seeing the big picture, it's getting easier as I get older though :)
