I Am Taking You Along With Me Today

Good Morning My Dear Ones,

Wow, where has the time gone? It is nearly the end of July already.

Great news from our garden space, the watermelon plants [there are 2] have started to vine and they have some blooms on thrilling to wait in anticipation for fresh watermelon from the garden. I have tried to grow watermelons in the garden for several years with no victory. This year we put up a fence to keep out any visitors [the cats ate the watermelon plants last year; they left all the other plants alone, just ate the watermelon plants, go figure!] and by the blessing of God we now have some lovely promising plants. In addition to the thriving watermelon, there are some pepper plants, tomato, lemongrass, cucumber, okra[not doing so well, but hanging in there!] and some flowers. The weather has been favorable to gardening...last year there was no rain and very hot and humid...the garden was not able to produce much. This year we have received so far, some nice cucumbers with m ore appearing each day...soon the tomato plants will provide for us...there are blooms tomatoes...YET...soon.

I have stumble [no not literally...or perhaps maybe literally since the clover is out in my field] upon a delightful homemade tea made from red clovers. There are many benefits to the clover tea and it is right outside in my yard...hard to resist a natural wonder [I add a little dried mint to mine]. It is good for detoxing the blood and the liver...those who take blood thinners, beware...I offer a couple links to read more:

I have to admit, there are moments when I wish had learned about all the possibilities God has provided for us out in the country sooner, I am forever grateful to discover His wonderful blessings now.
"I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living" Psalm 27:13
It truly amazes me, how He provides so much to us [when give the room to move in our lives and allow Him the time do His work in us]and we often miss out because "we think" we know what we are doing and talking about...when I read what I just wrote and realize all I do not reminds me of the TV show 'Hogan Heroes' and Sgt. Schultz who would go "I know NOTHING". Although, with him he had seen and was pretending he not see, alas, we do the same. We are shown everyday God's majesty and grace...and pretend [or deliberately choose] not to see or give Him credit for it...we would rather make it about "me" and what "I" did...I am guilty of that very thing every single day.
"Search me, O God, & know my heart, test me, & know my anxious thoughts" Psalm 139.:23
Meanwhile, know that you are in my heart and prayers each day...[by the by, I love meeting with you in my prayers, you have a special space in my heart]

I am out to my field to pick some red clovers to dry for an added bonus since you are in my heart...I am taking you along with me so we can hop, skip and watch the butterflies together.

Love you bunches and bunches...squeezes and squeezes....sqqqquuuuiisssshhh [that was a bear hug!]

Love Sara
