Our Eyes Are On You

I saw this on Pinterest.  And it spoke to me.

Because so many times I run around not knowing what to do.

Something happens that I didn't expect. 

And I don't know what to do about it.

Is my first thought to give it to God??  Sometimes, but not always.

Sometimes my first thought is "How am I gonna fix this mess?"

But that is not what our God wants us to do.  He wants us to trust Him.  He wants us to let go of our circumstances and let Him take control.

And while we're waiting for Him to take care of everything, He wants our eyes on Him.

Because when our eyes are on Him we experience peace in the midst of the storm.  When we are looking at Him, we aren't looking at the problem. 

Lord, help me to ALWAYS keep my eyes on You.

A Time To Sow . . . . .

This has been the strangest spring I have ever seen.

We haven't really even HAD spring.  It has been cold.  And it's been wet.   And it's been COLD.  And it's been WET.  And then it warms up a day or two.  And then it snows again (yes, we had snow last Wednesday, April 24th).  Yesterday it was 81 degrees.  Today it is 51 and raining.

Our garden is way behind.  I mean WAY behind.  We have a few onions out, and some lettuce and that's it.  And the lettuce isn't coming up yet.  I can't think of a year where we have ever planted anything in May.  'Cause my Grandpa always told me "you can't plant in a month that doesn't have an 'r' in it."  And May doesn't have an 'r'. 

So here's what we planted yesterday.  Corn.  (AND FOR THE LIFE OF ME I CAN'T GET THIS PICTURE TO GO IN HERE ROTATED TO THE LEFT???)

First we had to till the garden.
Then put the corn in the planter and plant. 

Doesn't that look NICE!

Hard to believe that in a few weeks there will be little shoots of corn coming up out of the ground.  That is, if it dries up and warms up.

Oh, and in case you're wondering . . . it's raining again right now. 

And it's COLD.  COME ON SPRING!!!!!
