My little paper pots have sprung to life!
All the tomatoes and cantaloupe have sprouted.
I'm seeing "fine hairs" of snapdragons today, but
nothing yet of the mini-peppers.
Soon, I hope.
Here they are underneath their clear tops that cause it to rain inside.
It looks like The Holiday Cactus is going to continue to bloom through Easter.
How sweet of her!
On Sunday I took a long walk to a place where I like to go sit and think.
This rocky ledge is where I sit and look out, and lucky for me,
there were sheep to gaze upon.
Everything looks so brown and dry.
There are little sprigs of green grass and forbs underneath the brown,
but we could sure use a rain
or a big, wet snow.
There's a gusty wind today and we're hoping it stirs up some rain for us.
As I was coaxing the sheep to a pond of water today,
I was thinking about the 23rd Psalm.
The Lord is my Shepherd
I shall not want for anything.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside still waters,
He restores my soul.
I was guiding the sheep from their green pastures to the still water.
Some of them ran right to the water to drink
and others waited for me to feed them the alfalfa cake.
We can lead the sheep to water and to the green pastures,
but we cannot make them drink or eat.
They have a choice.
We have a choice.
The Shepherd brings us to what we need
and waits for us to receive it.
A bloggy friend sent me a box of goodies!
A comfrey rootling, blood oranges and Meyer lemons from her own yard,
sunflower seeds from her own garden,
and a beautiful hooked rug from her own hands.
Wasn't that so nice? Thank you Kim!
Thanks for stopping by today!
