We are in a severe thunderstorm. YES!!!!! Well not the severe part, the thunderstorm part! We have been waiting along time for some rain and we are definitely getting it. The thunder is sweetness to our ears. You just have to be a Kansan to appreciate what thunderstorms mean. Life!!!!!! The wheat crop has been needing rain and our garden needed it before planting. I have all my starts of tomatoes, basil and zinnias out drinking up the rain. In the Potter's Shed there are different kinds of lettuce, broccoli, flowers and cabbage that are really going to jump after this rain. The 11 tomatoes in the garden are going to grow so fast now also. They are looking so good already, can't wait to look at them after a few days with rain on their leaves! Much to be thankful for, all because God thought up rain! Hmmmmm He is so good.
Yesterday we had our first taste of asparagus that we started a few years back. Can't wait for Taylor to make her famous quiche. Mmmmmm I can taste it now. She has turned into such a good little cook! She is always blessing her family with tasty dishes.
Mr and Mrs. Puddle Duck are running from one puddle to another. You should see them. They are a riot. I would be out their with them........ but I am an adult....... oh, to be a kid again. We have been known to take our umbrellas out and walk around barefoot! Smile. You should try it no matter your age........ it is good for the soul!
I just looked over at my honey................his head bowed. I know he is asking the Lord for protection for our family. I know he is taking each member to the Lord asking for direction. I am also sure he is asking the Lord that his wife, children and grandchildren will love the Lord with all their hearts and will not stray from HIM. When we both first meet 39 years ago, we were different. "Self" was our main purpose in life.......... then we were touched by the Holy of Holies. Life has never been the same. Perfect, no...........always being washed by the Word, yes. We are now choosing to want to please our Heavenly Father. In the easy and hard times. Trusting in the one that is the Redemmer! I look at him again. Precious man of God, leading.......... I am thankful I can follow. God will bless that. I so get in the way........ I am a woman............. self again. I refuse to accept my nature. I will try, try and try again...... till the day I die.
I am going with my daughters to a Beth Moore conference this Sat. I have gone to hear her quite a few times. She will be in Salina. I can't wait. The first time I saw her, this precious women got down on her knees and bowed before our God. I cried. It really touched me. I love how God uses her to open up the Word of God. I will tell you what I learn.
Blessings sweet ladies and I love you bunches!!!!!! Enjoy your day. Hope you are getting rain, if you need it.
I have to talk to the President of the fabric company this morning. Hope it is good news. Smile.
Listening to the rain on the roof................ beautiful!
Tell me what is going on in your little place in the world.
Almost forgot to tell you. If it is raining outside be sure to get a bucket out to catch all the rain. It has nitrogen which helps plants grow. Better then any tap water!!!!!!! You can then use the rain water to water your plants that you are starting!!! Just an idea, from this Prairie Flower to another Prairie Flower!!!!!!
