It Comes From the Lord

They drop on the pastures of the wilderness, And the little hills rejoice on every side.
Psalms 65:12 NKJV
He looks on the earth, and it trembles; He touches the hills, and they smoke.
Psalms 104:32 NKJV
I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help?
Psalms 121:1 NKJV
For every beast of the forest is Mine, And the cattle on a thousand hills.
Psalms 50:10 NKJV

Just a few thoughts from our trip to the Great Smoky Mountains.

Not what I wanted to see

Got up at Dawn to pick beans and found the fish pond like this…..

The fountain had tipped over and drained out the water. Here’s praying the fish do not die.

On a happier note, a friend gave us some cucumbers and I was able to can 4 quarts of dill pickles.

There is now a shortage of canning supplies. I was thankful to find 24 jars with lids. I have jars already but no one has lids and Amazon is price gouging. Hopefully I will be able to locate some by the time we do a second picking of beans.

Ah, Glorious Spring

Our fish pond is coming along. I think we may be done, other than we still need to add fish. The fake flower markers are where we submerged water lilies that will hopefully come up soon.

We also planted some roses, a gardenia and a honeysuckle close-by. Oh how lovely it will smell!

My mom gave me this sunflower for Mother’s Day. FYI, that is a storage building that is chipping paint in the background, not our house. 😘

Judging by the long lines at Lowes, we ascertained the entire community had the same plans for this lovely Saturday! Have you begun your spring planting yet?
