August 11, One Hot Garden

I am joining Ginny at Small Things by sharing our garden.

Hot weather (102-106) this week in Sacramento and it shows in the garden

Saturday Morning’s   —  I am at the curb with VEGGIES FOR SALE!

Wish you could stop by. . .I’d make you a deal!

I’m thankful for the shoppers who come every Saturday.

Today was pretty warm.
I’m thankful for Travis and Margaret’s easy-up for shade,
a cool breeze now and then,
and time to sit and knit and listen to a book
while I wait for veggie loving customers.

August 11, Today’s thought — God’s Promises

How the Farmer saw the sky.

Good Morning

“We never prize the precious words of promise,” said Mr. Spurgeon, “till we are placed in conditions in which their suitability and sweetness are manifested.”

We all of us value those golden worlds
“When thou walkest through fire thou shalt not be burned neither shall the flame kindle upon thee,” (Isaiah 43:2)
but few, if any of us have read them with the delight of the martyr Binney. To him this passage was a mainstay while he was in prison awaiting burning at the stake. His Bible, still preserved in the library of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, has the passage marked with a pen in the margin.
Doubtless if all were known, every promise in the Bible has borne a special message to some one Christian, and so the whole volume might be scored in the margin with mementos of Christian experience, every one appropriate to the very letter.

The promises of God are certain, but they do not all mature in ninety days. A. J. Gordon

Trust God for your day . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
