In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

I have no garden this year and boy do I miss it. How can I fill the void that downsizing has left in my life? How can God use me? I have a small garden of grandchildren growing around me. I could help cultivate them in Gods garden of life. They are like precious tender plants who will need food and water and tender care. Eleanor is leaving today for Washington State to visit our family there. She is shy and a bit fearful of people she does not know but I hope she has a great time meeting all her cousins, aunts, uncles, great-aunts, great uncles, great-grandma and great-grandpa. I will miss her but I will enjoy this time to refresh and renew. She is still petite but growing fast. She likes the basket filled with little people.

She chose a sheep with fuzzy hair, Oh...grandma...did you want to take my picture? This little sheep is very tasty. The fuzzy hair is great for teething. We have one tooth.

Hmmmm...let me see what else I can find in here.
(I love to sit back and watch her to see what she will choose.)
I will pray for a safe journey for her and her family

Hunter stopped by after his doctors visit. He wanted me to put on my shoes to go outside and when I didn't he put them on. I wasn't quick enough with my camera, he had both shoes on and was trying to walk in them. Later after his nap he couldn't walk at all...3 shots in both legs was the reason. It was adorable and sad at the same time. Hunter has really developed a vocabulary in the past three weeks. I was amazed. When he left he said "wove you gamma" , brought a tear to my eye. are my two, tender little plants and if God wishes we may have a few more in the next few years but for now I will do my best to cultivate a godly garden for them to grow in.
