It's Thankful Thursday. In June we are at Iris', Grace Alone.
Today Iris was sharing her thanks for the summer produce and the Farmers Markets.
This brings to mind two things. First a verse that I read recently.
John 4:36 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”
I also am thankful for my backyard garden. Many of you have heard this story before however, for the new readers I will tell you that for more than 25 years I worked in corporate America. I wore a suit, high heels, and always my nails were manicured. I really loved working but God had such better plans for my life.
Thus we moved to California and about three years ago we dug up the grass in the backyard and planted a garden. This garden is very special to me and I share a profound and amazing story about it in our book. I hope you get a chance to read it.
Anyhoo, there was a time in my life I never would have dreamed that I would love to dig in the dirt, cut off my nails and desire jeans to a business suit. Thank you Lord Jesus that you allowed me this wonderful gift of a life with dirt and a garden.
Last week I harvested and used in my cooking, zucchini, parsley, cilantro, basil and peaches. All from a tiny suburban backyard garden. It's my favorite place to read God's Word and pray.
I am, INDEED, richly blessed. I am so thankful for the Lord and His wisdom. He knew exactly what I really needed and what I would treasure.
What are you thankful for today? Share with me your praises and let's honor the Lord. Hugs, Lynn
