So much has happened in this last week! Easter was great, we attended our first Passover Sedar and I encourage any of you who have never done so to look into this! It's an amazing demonstration of how the old tradition points straight to Jesus Christ as the awaited Messiah of the Jews! I hope to see it become a yearly tradition for our family!
And oh, how my crops and children are growing! And yes, animals too! It looks like we may have puppies any day now, so that will be excitement for all of us! Thankfully the only damage we sustained in the storms this week were a couple of beat up plants and no lights for almost 24 hours.
My right hand garden hands and I would like to share our progress around here! It's SO amazing to me how things are growing! Something that seems so simple is bringing me so much joy! There seems to be a lesson in everything our garden does, it's almost like God has used this show us how life should be! I'm finding a peace in this work, a stronger bond with my family, and gratitude to our Lord for the accomplishment He's filling our hearts with as our garden grows!
|Pole beans and squash! Aren't they beautiful! Can you see how proud my baby girl is of the work we're putting in? She loves her garden and I'll be the first to tell you that this tiny little girl works right beside me!|
|One of my favorite plants! This is a type of Chocolate Pablano Pepper...I'm still not quite sure what to expect! But it sure is growing good!|
|Look at that baby boy! I definitely have the greatest, and best looking, garden crew around! And yes, that includes our own little Freckles back there rolling around! Where we go, that sweet dog follows!|
One of the sweetest sites of the week.....Anybody want a kiss? Freckles runs straight to this spot every day and kisses a pig! YES, actually kisses their snouts! How sweet is that?
|On another note, I want to share this picture of the kids and their Papaw Coleman and Grandma Vickie! A great picture of a great time over Christmas! Weren't we just talking about how fast they grow?|
I have been so blessed with these kids! I'm 30 years old and couldn't ask for a better family! People always talk about how sad it is to watch your children grow up. And I guess I'm just not there yet! I know one day I'll look back at these happy times with tears of reminiscence. But as for now, I'm just enjoying our time as what it is. Each day is so full of the laughter, sweetness, temper tantrums, joys, challenges, and love we have. We're just too busy 'being' everyday to be sad that yesterday has passed! I love my kids and I cherish who they are today! And most of all, I thank God for entrusting them to me. I'm so unworthy of being their Mom and yet that's who I am! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I'd love comments from family and new friends who are just joining us on our blog! As for how to go about all of that.....you'll have to ask someone else.....I'm still new to all of this blog stuff! ;)

I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.
