May 22 — Today’s thoughts — Peace

Happy Petunias

Good Afternoon

On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” John 20:19

The church of Jesus Christ began with a group; of frightened men in a second-floor room in Jerusalem.
Though they’d marched wit Jesus for three years, they now sat . . .afraid.
They were timid soldiers, reluctant warriors, speechless messengers.
Daring to dream that the master had left them some word,
some plan,
some direction,
they came back.
But little did they know their wildest dream wasn’t wild enough. Just as some one mumbles, “It’s no use,” they hear a noise.
They hear a voice; “Peace be with you.”
The betrayed sought his betrayers.
What did he say to them?
Not “What a bunch of flops!”
Not “I told you so.”
No ” Where-were-you-when-I-needed-you?” speeches.
But simply one phrase, “Peace be with you.”
The very thing they didn’t have was the very thing he offered: peace.

May 22 Garden Update

The Farmer is so glad it is planting time. Much planning and preparation goes into Cozy Acre’s garden. The bountiful harvest makes all the work worthwhile.

Facing south:

on the left, garden plot is 90’x75′ . The lighter dirt is a driveway between the two plots.

on the right, garden plot is 40’x75′

Winter garden, 34’x51′, is in the back, the Farmer is still picking swiss chard and beets.

The Farmer’s drip watering system:

The plants get covered with mulch to preserve water and cut down on weeds. The Farmer only waters the plants not walkways, He says, ‘if you don’t water the weeds, they won’t grow.’
