A Cool Breeze.....refreshing this morning!

Good morning sweet ladies,

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 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 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 were a blessing to leave the prayers. God heard them........and He healed Ellianna, perfectly.

  3. Oh my, my heart is so sad for them. I will be in prayer.

  4. Hi Linda,

    I'll continue to pray for Mark and Hannah and there kids ;) :) :) thanks for sharing here. It helps to know how to pray more specifically for them!!! My dad and I will both be praying. God loves that family...and that family is loved/prayed for in our household :) :)

    Pumpkins? that weould be cool. Would you try growing them normal size or giant pumpkins? I wonder how much longer you'll have to wait to know for sure ;) :)

    Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  5. Linda,

    We are praying for this sweet family. Just can't even imagine the pain they are going through.

    I love pickles and I love pumpkins even more! Looking forward to seeing your garden :) You have about an hour and a half until Texas is at your sweet farm :)

    Love ya,


  6. Praying for this family in this time of heartache and great loss. May God's strong arms hold you tight in comfort and love.

  7. I will pray for Mark and Hannah and their precious family. May the LORD indeed give them HIS grace and peace at this most difficult time! How wonderful that the LORD has you in their lives...and that HE gives all that is needed at such times as these.

    Just wanted to let you know I am going to be *offline* for about a month. I will hope to *catch up* with you about mid-August...Lord-willing. Have a lovely Summer with your family my friend.

    The LORD is good.
    All the time!
    With love,
    Camille Psalm 46:1

  8. From the entire Walker family... Our hearts and prayers go out to Mark and Hannah and their children that God's precious love for His children and the body of Christ will see them through until they meet her again in heaven.

  9. I am so sorry to hear of their precious loss. If she needs someone to talk to that has been through something very similiar I would be honoured to talk or just simply listen. I watched my sweet infant daughter pass away just two years ago. I didn't have anyone that I could relate to so I wanted to post a comment but I was also concerned as to whether or not it was inappropriate for me to comment. Sorry if it was inappropriate. We will definitely be keeping them in prayer.

  10. Oh... this is not the update I expected either. Please tell them how sorry I am, and that I will be praying peace over them.

  11. Praying! Praying!
    Lifting all those sad hearts to HIM!
    Love Granny Trace

  12. First, PEACE to the family and friends. Jesus loves little children! And I know exactly what you mean when you say that you don't know how people can make it without the love of our LORD!

    Next, I call those green things pickles, too. My mom and brother always share with me so I am able to enjoy them without fighting the grasshoppers.

    Enjoy your weekend! ♥♫

  13. Oh Linda... my heart just aches for this family. I can not imagine the pain they are experiencing. I continue to pray for them.

    I love your garden...the 'pickles' are so cute!! I can't wait to see these little cucumbers once they are pickles in your jar!

    Glad you are enjoying some cooler it is just stiffling hot..

    xoxo Gert

  14. Life is indeed fragile. I am praying for Hannah and Makr and their family. Blessings Linda. You are such a dear. Anne
