WELL & Believing...

The earth is the LORD'S,
and the fulness therefore; the world,
and they that dwell therein.

Psalms 24:1

'Good Morning' from the farm!
Hoping this finds each of you well & believing...

Lately as I've went about my business, 
trying to meet & greet my obligations with 
ease & happiness, I sometimes seem to fall 
behind on enthusiasm.

This morning as I was enjoying my coffee 
& pondering on today's duties, I suddenly had the desire to search out some
verses on 'Stewardship'...

 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily ,
as to the Lord, and not unto men.
Colossians 3:23

He has bestowed upon me few things
to care for & enjoy... so therefore,
I have the responsibility to do well with 
those things that have been given, after all... 'the earth is the Lord's and everything
in it'... He will make sure 'ALL' is well!

I'm looking to 'Him' for approval & NOT to man...
I know 'He' has gotten EVERYTHING covered!

SIMPLE moments...

A happy life is simply the sum
of many small, happy moments.

~Penny Krugman

HAPPY MOMENTS... are found in the garden, 
ESPECIALLY when 'Mother Nature' 
offers BOUNTIFUL bouquets 
to fill your home & to be gifted 
as a token of LOVE!
(SHOWN: 'Tall Phlox' grown here
on the farm)

The sweetness...
of a PRECIOUS smile brings
'HAPPINESS' to my soul!

Days that R spent trudging about
in my FARM boots while
dressed in my APRON best...
contribute... to the HAPPY life
as well!

MUCH like... 
how 'WHITE' Ironstone makes 
me want to possibly BURST
into a song of... 

My 'HOPE' is that you find THOSE moments
in YOUR life, the SMALL, SIMPLE ones
that are often given SO freely!

Goes WELL with Flowers...

Find the seed at the
bottom of your heart and
bring forth a flower.

~Shigenori Kameoka 

Each NEW day goes WELL with FRESH bouquets...

Blooming Flowers... bring about a 'WELLNESS' to the soul,
whether they are flourishing in the garden, being gifted
to a friend OR as a few, simple stems tucked
into an old, 'Ball' jar...
there's NO preference to a PASSIONATE gardener that lives
with a garden growing in her HEART!

CUTTING gardens are a PASSION here at the farm...
NOT only do they provide a small portion of
income, BUT they offer EACH day
with a GOOD mood... BEAUTY... & a place of TRANQUILITY!

WHY wouldn't ANYONE not delight in the presence
of FLOWERS, is BEYOND my garden gate!

'Granna's Rose in my window'

FLOWERS come with sentimental qualities as well...
such as the ROSE (above) was swiped from
'Granna's' little garden one evening
as I was walking home.
I choose to settled it into a small, ironstone
creamer which I remembered as a child being
apart of 'Granna's' collection... how appropriate! 

Another ray of SUNSHINE... on this COLD, COLD winter day!

'Annabelle' Hydrangea is a MUST for ANY garden!
It definitely pays for it's keep here at the farm...

AND... straight from my garden...
 the 'Wisteria' vine trailing atop a pergola,
weaving about to create a shelter area for
those evening dinners... all awhile
furnishing tables with an
abundance of homegrown GOODNESS!

Can you guess...
FRESH~CUT FLOWERS are an important staple
to my home & my soul!
