I love gardening. I’m not sure what part is my favorite; planning, shopping, digging in the dirt, watching things grow or enjoying the fruits (and veggies) of my labor. These are peas with edible pods. Looking forward to watching them crawl up the trellis that will be put behind this box this weekend.
I also love when irrigation is free. We’ve experienced much needed rain recently so these babies have it good right now.
I didn’t go out to visit the garden the past two days because of the rain and the blessing of time with a visiting friend. But today this is what I discovered

Stumble in the Right Direction
March 4, 2014
I had the distinct privilege of talking on the phone this morning with a dear friend and prayer partner. I call it a distinct privilege on purpose. It’s always fun to talk with her; we laugh and I cry (I do that easily, ask anyone who knows me well) and we give and receive encouragement. So why was today’s conversation a “distinct privilege”?
It was distinct: clear, certain, emphatic
She had some very specific clear communication for me as my dear friend. She knows my heart and she knows my gifts/talents/skills and she knows where I am prone to fall.
She said clearly in response to my awareness of a need I would be skilled and experienced to fill: “that is a mud pit you don’t want to fall into.”
When I went on to share a bit about what I’ve been up to since we last spoke, she responded with more: “you are in a good place. You’re stumbling in the right direction.”read more »
