If I could invite you to Prairie Flower Farm, I would prepare a little banquet for you.
I would have the table set ................
...................... with my fine linen (from a box that someone gave me
that was left over from an estate), but it is "fine" to me. I love it!
I always wondered what the meaning of this saying meant............ this proverb means, that it is better to spend a little time to deal with problems or act right now than wait. If you wait until late, things will get worse, and it will take much longer to deal with them.
I would ask you to sit at my table. You would be served scones, strawberry/rhubarb jam
with homemade whipping cream (made like Grandma Jo's with powdered sugar, instead
of granulated sugar), on a simple little thrift shop plate and a nice cup of TAZO Passion tea.
I would read to you from the scriptures,
that you are special to the Father........... I would pray that Jesus would
lift you up, if you were needing strength. Maybe you have lost your
husband and are missing him so, maybe you are caring for your adopted 6
children who are all handicap and you need prayer to stay steadfast, or maybe
you might need a little encouragement to get you through to another day.
What ever your need might be, I would want you to feel loved at our farm. I would
want to hear your life stories. You know we all have them. They make us who we are.
I am sure you would look around and notice as we sat at the table..........
my broccoli with their sweet little heads reaching for the sky......
........my lettuce mix, parsely and see the pretty little flowers?
You won't believe the cabbage and how big it is getting. You might like how
I put flowers in with my veggies. I think it makes the bed look prettier.
If we stood back you could see how long the trough is. I would show you how
I use the screens to keep the plants protect through bad weather. My prayer would
be that you would find a special place of refuge in my little Potter's Shed!
Then I would take you on a little walk. We would leave and you would see........
............ my columbine flowers. This year they are so beautiful.
I would give you a start off of them, so you could go and plant some at your place.
This makes me wish you all lived close to me. Wow that would be an everyday party!
We would have to go by the chicken coop and you could see Mr. Not So Nice Guinea!. Heehee. Notice the one tail feather. We would have to giggle! I was nice...... I left him one feather. All the "Miss CHICKS" think he's looking a little funny these days with noooooo tail feathers, but ONE. If you didn't read yesterday's post, it is a must! I think it will make you smile.
After we left the coop...........
.........we would go over to the rhubarb patch, where the ducks would be playing, and pick you some rhubarb, so you could make some Strawberry Rhubarb Jam for yourself. I found the recipe at a really wonderful blog. The scones are found here at the Joy of Baking.
Then we would say good bye until another day! I would never be the same, because
I have met you! That is true, since I have met you all my life is not the same.
You all bring so much joy to my life!
One day for those who are in Christ there will be a Wedding Feast. He will come to get His Church and take us with Him. He will have a banquet like no other has ever been given. There will be the finest of linens, food like we have never seen before, we will be with Him forever. Until that day, we need to tell others what he has done for us. Our simple stories of His faithfulness!
Matthew 28: 18 says, Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Blessings sweet ladies, we have hope, we are not been left alone. Again, I want you to know......
"You are so Precious In His Sight!
One more thing, I have noticed so many new followers. I love it that you have
come to join us! Thank you!
