Praise !


The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

It's nearly after noon.......

.........and I've hardly started my day !
I don't mean that I'm just getting up.......oh no, I got up around 7 a.m., when hubby couldn't wait any longer for me to go outside and sit with him.  He wakes up before 6 and tries not to wake me  until he just can't stand it any longer.........I think it's sweet !

So, I get up and we go right back out to where we ended yesterday's evening, only this time we have our coffee and Bible reading.  Sitting in the driveway, listening to the birds, (going to roost last night, after swooping down to catch lightning bugs) flying about in the fruit trees looking for breakfast this morning.  Piper runs and chases the squirrels that come to rob the bird feeders in the neighbor's yard. 

When Piper lights, she wants a chair of her own, or to sit in Papa's lap.......not mine !
It's so pleasant, though !  In the evening, the kids gather 'round and talk to us between rounds up and down the hill on their bikes.  The daddy next door brought a sugar dispenser jar to catch lightning bugs for his little boy and girl. 
In the morning, we can wave people off to work,  watch to see if the mailman brings us anything........and, like this morning, I can get a little mowing done while it's still cool. 

No, I just mean that I haven't gotten much accomplished this morning, compared to yesterday where it seemed like I was doing SOMETHING, nonstop.

My flowers that I put out (from WalMart) aren't growing very much, but the ones I gather on our morning or evening walk are such fun. 

This morning I found these, and I don't know what they are. 

They broke off when I tried to pull them up with roots, but I'm hoping that they will re-root (is that a word?)  I put two into the garden and one into a glass of water, hoping something will survive.
I've been pulling wild Daisies, and even brought home a Queen Anne's lace this morning, as I really want some tall flowers to cover and disguise the tongue of this trailer. 

These may not be everyone's choice, but it's fun to just see what I can get to grow here.

Well, I think I'll finish my lunch dishes and see what I can get into in the sewing room.  I hope you all have time to stop and sit and hear the birds tonight.......maybe hubby and I will be out there again, too !
