Of course, I started out pretty overwhelmed and under joyed, but I realized that it has a lot to do with how I'm spending my time and what I'm investing my time in.
I've been intentional about my quiet times and 52 in 52 studying this week. It's a breath of fresh air!
Just like these lovely wildflowers. Aren't they happy?
My friend Ashley and I were driving down a back road Monday morning, and these little beauties were growing on the side of the road. I said, "I want to pick some!!!!" So she pulled over!
Yay!! I picked some for myself and some for Ashley.
They're still on my kitchen table right now.
I had to shake out all of the pollen (or whatever it was that was falling off) today. I should probably throw them out, but they're too happy still to be tossed.
One of my tomato plants outside has a baby tomato.
But I think I killed the plant, therefore killing the baby tomato. Oops.
There's still another plant going strong, and it has flowers on it so far! Hopefully baby tomatoes are in the neat future!
The other flowers in my garden are doing pretty well. I may have a green thumbnail at this point.
Definitely not a whole green thumb though.
2 Chronicles 3l:20-21
In everything he undertook ... he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered.
Love that passage.
This is so hard, isn't it?
Well okay. Maybe it's just me, but I find it hard!
I don't even realize I'm complaining sometimes until after it's done and time has passed.
But this is my prayer, my ambition.
Remember when I said I was trying to be more intentional about my quiet times and my scripture memorization? Well, I'm trying to be more intentional about not complaining or arguing as well.
So this bitty kitty has kind of taken over the house. Her name is Chloe, and she's only about 5 weeks old now.
I know, she's supposed to still be with her mommy, but she didn't have one when she was found, so I've become her mommy.
She drinks goat milk. And sleeps in a little cradle formed from my shirt. And climbs the curtains like an American Ninja Kitten.
And...she drives Izzy crazy. For real.
For the first week that Chloe was here, Izzy hid under the bed all the time. This week, she has been coming out from under the bed.
She does well until Chloe decides to play Simba from The Lion King and pounce on Izzy.
Yeah. She's pretty feisty!
I discovered a "Documentary Network" on my TV tonight.
And I just watched an hour worth of a documentary about these four Irish women talking about their late husbands and their many quirks.
