" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth." Isaiah 40:28

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

Jesus said,
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their sins,
your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14,15

Tilling has begun !

This morning I started the day by adjusting the carburetor on my little Mantis Tiller -------YOU GO, GIRL !-------I had never done THAT before, but it was necessary, and I got 'er done, so to speak !  Praise God for my hubby's cheerleading on the sidelines !   Anyway, once I got the little machine running well, I went over all of the garden spot that I had broken up last Fall.   It's not a big space, although it's more than we ever dug up out in Oklahoma.  I may do more, but will wait to see exactly what it is I want to plant and how much space I think that I'll need.  I'm not a canner, and I don't have a lot of freezer space, so I need to be realistic about what we can use and share.  

Then this afternoon I finished weeding that flower garden that runs down the side of the driveway, the one where the Dwarf Crape Myrtles are planted.   I noticed that those shrubs have tiny budding leaves on them, and my Rose of Sharon trees are starting to leaf out too........even the 3 in 1 that I ordered from Michigan Bulb.   Of course, it's only about 9 inches tall, if that, so it'll be awhile before I see 3 different colored blooms on it.   But you know what?  The little Lilac bushes that I put out last Fall have buds on them, and they're only about 14 inches tall !

Our temperature here today may have actually reached 80 degrees !  It's very warm inside tonight, but there's a breeze coming in the windows.  I just love sleeping with the windows open at night.  We're predicted to get semi-serious storms here tomorrow, so I went to the grocery store tonight instead of to church.   There was a good crowd at church when I guiltily drove by on my way home......John is doing a good job of teaching that class.
