Mommy Time

My friend Rachel had an idea to get some moms together and 'float' on tubes around our local lake. One rule: No Kids! It was perfect! We take our kids to the pool and chase them or to the lake and chase them. Don't get me wrong here-I love my kids! But sometimes you need to do something alone! And we did! So fun! The water was warm and we laughed about all sorts of stuff! Mostly about our lack of control for our watercraft as one friend put it! I haven't done anything like that in a long time! It was the best night ever!!!

Giving up

Lately things seems hard.
Hard to be joyful. 

Hard to be the one who encourages. 

But then God uses my wonderful friends 
to show me joy and encouragement and many other things. 
Today I was reminder not to give up!
 What sweet words they were to my soul! 
That I can come running to the Father and hide in His hands and He will protect me. 
There is someone who wants me to give up and just lay down everything I have given to Jesus. 
It is a battle of a spiritual nature not of flesh and blood.

And I will not. I refuse. Flat out!
My family and future generations are worth
fighting for!!!

So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up. Gal.6:9

When the world comes crashing in
And chaos rules my mind,
I turn my heart to you, Lord,
And pure, sweet peace I find.

You lift me out of trouble
You comfort me in pain;
You nourish, heal and cleanse me,
Like cool, refreshing rain.

In times of joy and bliss,
When things are going right,
You lift me even higher,
And fill me with delight.

This girl is not giving up anytime soon!

The Patio Garden

As I sit here and munch on a PB and Vanilla creme sandwich...Wait what is that??? Well you can check it out here! So divine! A little special something for mommy when the days are extra tough ;)
Anyway back to the post! I wanted to share my patio garden with ya! This is much bigger than we have ever done but not bigger than our first(and only) garden in 2006. Sadly we haven't lived anywhere that has been suitable for a real-in-ground garden. So here it is and I'm in love with it. It's the little things ya know? 

Some of the tomatoes.

The jalapeno 

A Whitney Pepper plant

More tomatoes-we have 6 in all :)

The Cucumber!!!

Sweet Basil and Boxwood Basil 

Roma tomatoes

Bell Pepper
A bunch of different Lettuces 
Then we have Rosemary, Cilantro, Sage and Chives. My little girl loves the Rosemary and every time we water she picks little pieces off to eat. So funny!  I wanted to upload that pic but it is not wanting to-SAD!
