garden update and thoughts

Here are photos of the garden at our house not the big garden. Everything is looking great!

I also wanted to share a book that our fellowship is reading. It is called Radical by David Platt .
We are only on the second chapter but already Wow! This book really does make you really look at your life, faith and what you could be doing. I feel us in the United States take our faith a little for granted sometimes, while those in other countries thirst for the Word and want to learn as much as they can, while
they know they will be killed for this if found out. What amazing faith!!!
This book has already challenged me and my hubby to not take our faith for granted! I feel so blessed to be able to state my Christianity and not have to worry about being killed for it. This also made me think of other things we take for granted. Our house that has heat and A/C, money to buy food and seeds for the garden. Vehicles,electricity and so on.....
We are going to work harder on giving to those who need things more then we do. I hope this challenges you to really not take things or even your faith for granted because we all are truly blessed!!
Have a wonderful week!

PS. I will be writing soon about my "Battle for the Birds" , my story on trying to get chickens to be allowed in our borough. :)
