“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

Remembering: The Lingering Garden

I love being able to look back on my blogging... to see where I've been... and where God has brought me.

This was originally posted on June 4th of 2007.

I'm not sure what has come over me lately. I am not a gardener at all. However, our backyard has been quite the sanctuary for me this spring. Last year due to illness it went neglected entirely. Now, it causes me to linger. To want to be outside. It is as if the Lord wants me to be gardening.

Psalm 126:6

He who goes out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him.

What a promise! There's been a bit of weeping with the school year closing out (new school next year)...but what a promise...there will be a harvest!

I'm in love with your back yard and I haven't even seen it! I think your gardening has been a wonderful outlet for you and isn't it nice to see the fruit of your labors??

Hope to talk to you soon.
