When I wrote Life is Fragile yesterday morning I was not thinking that our little Ellianna wasn't going to make it. She is safe in the arms of Jesus as her Momma and Daddy said yesterday. I was on the phone with Hannah last night. The pain she is feeling is almost unbearable. She is hurting so bad and understandably. Thank you ladies for praying for their precious family. Baylie is their 6 year old daughter. She is taking it real hard, she wants her back. The littlest is Isabella and she is 3.....she is being a comfort for all of them. Jacob their oldest son is at a camp. He does not know yet. Saturday they will pick him up and they will meet in the chapel with the chaplain to help walk through this. That will help you know how to pray in these next few days. Micah our daughters best friend and sister of Hannah was with and stayed the night. Oh my so much sadness in our home. It was good to go before the Lord and seek His face for help. I don't know how people do it without Him. I guess I should, there was a day that I didn't. So thankful He found me.
This morning I needed a walk. There was a cool breeze as I went to my garden. The birds were singing to me. ......loved it, well really they were probably singing to the Lord......I just got to listen. With it being so hot is was refreshing to get up early this morning for some coolness! Yesterday I had gone early in the morning to check on the pickles. I just love calling my cucumbers pickles, because that is what I see when I look at them! A BIG jar of PICKLES! NUM! Now I am sure you are tired of looking at my pickle plants.......sorry!!!! But you have to see this one. It looks smaller in the picture than it really is. About 5".
Now as I was looking around to see what else was happening in the garden I came to this huge plant. Now it is a volunteer. I do not know what it is, but this morning it had the cutest little round things. I am thinkin a pumpkin! Oh do I ever hope that is the case. You have to look. See them? There are two. You will be sure I will keep my eye on them.........like every morning.......maybe in the evening also. Can't help it. I am a farmer.......that's what we do! They really grow fast when they get to this stage. I have 2 more of these plants. I so hope they are little white pumpkins. My fav!
Well I haven't said anything, but one of my blogger friends from Sunflowers and Pumpkins is coming to KANSAS...........today. She and her two girls (almost the same ages of ours) are driving up for the weekend. Can't hardly wait to meet her. We will take pic's. It will be fun........never done this before.......nor has she. She loves Jesus, me and my girls.......that is good enough for me!
Don't forget the party is still going on! Thank you to all who have signed up.
Also the Friends Are Like Flowers In My Flower Garden Apron and Ball Canning Blue Book are selling well, located on my side bar if you are interested. Thank you for your orders. Part of the sales goes to Vitaliy's fund.
Hugs to your day...........thank you again for being there for Mark and Hannah..........you were a blessing to leave the prayers. God heard them........and He healed Ellianna, perfectly.
