Oh what a weekend at the potting shed.
Saturday, we had an Appt. to take a cow and two heifers to the vet, but.. we couldn't catch one of the heifers. The cow was preg tested and we found out she had a large mummified
The vet advised us to sell the cow, so after driving home to unload the de-horned heifer; we hauled the cow to the salebarn. The rest of the day was spent mowing, and weed-eating. So happy to have it all done!
Sunday's message at church was in John 21, when Jesus asked Peter three times in a row, if he loved Him? I keep thinking about it.....
Sometimes in our everyday life, I'll ask Myguy,... "Do you love me?"
He'll sweetly say something like: "With all my heart, ... I just told you that a little while ago, don't you remember?"
And I'll say, "Yeah... but I just wanted to hear it again."*
A long time ago, I wrote about a lady friend of mine who always says, "I love ya honey." She says it to everybody. I've heard her talk out loud to Jesus many times. You could be at the store she worked in, and hear her talking to someone, and then hear the name Jesus,... and you'd know... she was talking to her Jesus again. ;) She was unashamed. She was bold. And oh how I admire her. She's says and shows her love for Him and her neighbor too! ~ Plain and simple, the woman oozes Jesus.
My devotional, says to stay in communication with Jesus by whispering His name throughout the day. After our message in John yesterday, I'm not only whispering His name, throughout my everyday, but whispering I love you's. If I like to hear it so often, I keep thinking that maybe He does too.
It's finally warm enough that I'm setting a table next to the lilac bush that's in full bloom to do my daily reading/study. It smells so wonderful, and I find myself lingering there when I water, so I decided to read next to it. When I was little, we had a huge lilac bush with hollowed out areas in the middle of it. I'd borrow a stack of books from the public library, and carry them home in the basket of my yellow banana bike. Then I'd place a blanket in the middle of that lilac bush and lie down and go to all the far away places inside my books. Today, I'll be visiting the Garden of Eden as I'm currently in Genesis.
-- In case any of you have wondered about the toad....
He's been pot hopping. He goes from claypot to boot, to claypot, and back to boot.
He thinks I don't see him.
But I can.
