Gratituesday!

This week I am grateful for LAND.
Yup, that’s right – dirt. With things on it.
There is a difference.
We are so blessed to be sharing 2.5 acres with my parents…
this land that I grew up on, grew my first weeds flowers on, hunted for chicken eggs on,
chased after baby goats on, fell and scraped my knees on, played mud pies on…

This place where I feel the most connected to God
and my family.

And where I am so grateful to have room to grow –
be it boys, pets, or a garden.

Thank You Lord, for the bounty of harvest that we are able to bring from this land.
May we strive to bring a bounty to You of our first fruits, Lord.
Amen
