bounty


Don't you just love the gifts of summer?  God's bounty in our garden plots, roadside stands, farmers markets, and our lives!  I know I do and I am thankful for time to slow down and revel.
I love the beauty to be found in the colors of fruit and vegetables so my card for the Ways to Use it Challenge over at SCS was a natural choice.  

We are so fortunate to have numerous family farms and one of the oldest outdoor Saturday markets to obtain this harvest!  In each season, new wonders. I especially love the fall markets when the mushrooms are available...fresh from the forest floors.  All this reminds me of the seasons in my life, too.  And that my searching for balance is part of God's design on my life.

Is my house more orderly and the laundry caught up, no..but in my spirit there is peace!
