Nearly Buzzing…

March 24, 2012






So much going on here… We are building hives and adding topsoils to the gardens. I am edging beds and topping with rich mulch.  We are just getting all kinds of dirty over here.  My deck looks like the laundry exploded as little boys…and maybe a little girl…tossed their shirts as the temperatures climbed over 80*.  The kids are bothering the frogs and toads who are still too slow to escape a gang of seven children.   We even set the sprinkler up…and that copper penny headed kid could just not resist running through a few times!  The flowering trees are in glorious bloom and are just buzzing all over with honey bees and clumsy carpenter bees. Out every window are just clouds of beautiful color.

He is just jumpstarting His beauty this year.

I remember 4years ago when it was still cold this time of year…and we were rushing in and out of the hospital as my dad was recovering from quadruple bypass surgery.  I will never forget those phone calls… where I called my brothers and sister , all spread out across the country at that time, and told them to hurry home.  I will never forget the power of walking shoulder to shoulder with them as we finally were all together going into the hospital.  I will never forget what He told me then… “watch for community”.  Watch for who answers the call…who does with out ever being asked…who hears His prodding…and just. shows. up.  It was then that He told me to build community…to never forget what it feels like to know someone heard Him speak your families name to them…and then responded.  I remember the waiting room filling up that night with those who heard Him whisper our names to them.

So in honor of God letting us keep our dad here on earth…who by the way looks like a younger  and thinner Ricky Skaggs…listen to this really inspiring song… the words are just amazing


What did you think of the song? I only heard it recently and it just really stopped me. Nothing can separate us from His Love..I mean the worst has been done…we are no match for all the ways they have tried to separate His Love from us…so we mise well just accept it. He loves you and that is it!  Well see ya tonight! ~T

Oh and here is how I am organizing my tools, as you can see in the one photo: “You’ve got tools!”

    Glad you find your peace on earth being busy about it. And glad you took a break for an “hour of happiness”

      oh this is ridiculously early.
      I don’t think I ever had this early of a spring before.
      but last night was cold again so I tarped all the gardens.
