This is my front flower bed - SAD, isn't it! At one time I had beautiful flowers and small shrubs. Then we had a goat 'problem.' That was four years ago. Since then I haven't had the time, money or inclination to do much about it...so I just shrug at my sad flower bed.But look closely at what IS growing here! We are cultivating mercy, grace, sharing, hope...
...and these blossoms are much sweeter than any flowers I could hope to grow. And that is TRUE!
The last weeks of school are always crazy, and this year is no exception. But today we took care of some housekeeping items. Early this morning I caught up on work, then the kids 'helped' me clean house, wash bedding, pick up the limbs from last night's wind storm, do laundry and plan our menu.
I say this only because I have a habit of setting unrealistic expectations for myself and grumbling when I don't meet them.
Lord, please help me not to be anxious about the things I need to finish, but rather rejoice in the things you've allowed me to accomplish!
