in which i wax poetic on garden and pigs

why is this
amazing?
this garden growth
this porcine growth
this bluebird growth
this boys in my house growth
why is this
amazing?
in this summer
this busy, drive-people-everywhere-summer
in this summer
this i-thought-i-would-write-a-book-summer
in this summer
god is growing me
because growth is
on
his
heart
we ask God to give you
complete knowledge of
his will
and to give you
spiritual wisdom and understanding
then the way you live will always
honor and please
the Lord
and your lives will
produce every kind of
good fruit
all the while, you will grow
as you learn to
know God
better
and
better

  2. Your garden is rocking. Good for you.
    My husband has always wanted pigs and I always talk him out of it... I would love to hear more about what made you get them etc etc...

  6. Summers are about growth, aren't they? It's easy to see in the physical, but harder in the spiritual. You've inspired me to look more closely at my heart growth.

    Blessings,
