" 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

ALMOST one step closer !

The lady from Walmart called today and asked if I could come in for ORIENTATION this coming Friday morning at 8 a.m.-----------YES MA'AM !, LORD willing, I WILL BE THERE !

So, for me, that means that it's time to look around and see what needs doing NOW,  before my 'free' time becomes greatly limited.  Today, that meant sweeping out the shed and restoring it to a semblance of order, and then mowing the scrabbly areas of the backyard and most of the front yard.

But before mowing the front, I got my 6 tomato plants put into the area of my garden that I re-tilled this week.

THEN when I mowed the front yard, I used the grasscatcher, and spread the clippings around each tomato plant in hopes of keeping the weeds down.  I've never tried this method at the BEGINNING of the planting season, so I hope I have success.  Last year, I only used clippings during the drought season to keep in the moisture when I watered the garden areas.


  1. I have used grass clippings from the very start. They seem to help protect the plant even if it is small. It keeps the moisture in the soil too. Beautiful shots and great clean ups that you accomplished.

  2. I use all my clipping too . . . it helps hold moisture and eliminates a huge amount of weeding. It looks like you have a job . . . congratulations! It will be a good thing and help busy your mind helping others and not feel so lonely.
    Wishing you the very best,
    Connie :)

    1. That was such a thoughtful response to my post. And you're exactly right.......as much as I need the income, I think that I actually need the distraction MUCH MORE. Bless you, Connie !

  3. I am so happy you heard back from them!! As Connie said, keeping busy will be good for you. =)

    1. Thanks, Amy........I know that you've been praying for me, and I rejoice in answered prayers !


Thanks for stopping by !
