Lessons learned in yardwork . . .

A beautiful sunny day ... it was not too humid yet so went out to work on a few things - weeding, trimming bushes. So here are the three thoughts that were revealed to me as I worked and allowed the Holy Spirit to speak - to teach and guide and to remind me just like He came to do. . . it helps that I had my "listening ears" on as we so often tell our children or as adults would say "I was tuned into" Him.

First, weeds come up easier when soil is wet. There was a whole patch of them and it just looked ugly! I hadn't looked in this spot in awhile. Not long ago there were a few, but now - boy, was it overrun! The weeds weren't coming up at all, unless they had shallow roots. They needed to be watered, to let the water seep down into the soil and loosen the roots.

It would give much interest to prayer, if we were more definite.STREAMS IN THE DESERT

So come and enjoy the journey for it will be a great adventure in these days...But determine that you will experience it with great joy and with great peace; for this is My kingdom within you, says the Lord God Almighty.-M.

My Father God, has been speaking with me about seeking Him . . . it has been a really strong theme the past few weeks. Just this morning I felt the urge to go down to the beach . . . so many other things I could be doing/needed to catch up on, but they will still be there - didn't have any appointments except apparently one I didn't know about ... the one that was not on MY calendar -- spending an hour at the beach with my Lord. I have to share that the practical and logical in me has won the battle for so many years . . . and this is what …
