......it's a rare thing for me to drive somewhere by myself, just for fun, just to spend a little money on myself. I'm not trying to be modest or anything, it's just not been a part of my life for a long time now. Since I've come back to driving, I mostly run errands or go to Church......or those seemingly frequent doctor's visits.
So last night was really fun. I went out to the tongue of the trailer, where I had grown a tomato plant last year, and had transplanted some Irises that I found on the next lot while that trailer was empty.......(is that bad? They were being mowed frequently !) Anyway, I've planted a few Marigold seeds among the Irises and they've started to come up, and I'm really hoping that the Irises themselves will decide to bloom this year. But seeing as how Irises are already in full bloom all over town, I suspect that it'll be atleast another year before they've overcome their 'mower shock'.......I don't blame them at all; it'd take me alot more than 2 years ! So, dreading few blooms, I dug up the rest of the spot across that end and worked in a large bag of potting soil.......alas, the ground around this trailer is nothing like the fertile soil I had in my Oklahoma yard. (And I remember complaining about clay in the soil back there.)
Well, knowing that I had stuck away a little rat-hole money over the last few months, I told the hubby that I was heading out to all-mart to get me some bloomers !
I messed around out there for atleast an hour in indecision, picking up this, putting back that,......you know the drill if you know me and spending !
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
