God's Many Blessings

Everyone can look around them and see the many blessings that God has given us, even in the midst of a time when things look bleak with inflation of gasoline, food, or anything you might need to buy. God has given me such a peace during this time of having less, but in reality he has given me so much more. He supplies my every need, he even gives me the desires of my heart. This summer the Lord has helped me to try and see the ways I can lessen the financial burden on our family and he has given me resources that I would never have come across without his intervention. Recently a friend of mine called me and told me she had someone with flats of strawberries very inexepensive, I was able to get 2 flats and make strawberry freezer jam, now I don't have to buy the expensive store strawberry jam. Another blessing is the how God is making my garden to grow and start to produce wonderful vegetables. I picked a cucumber(a favorite) longer than my forearm, I also had a wonderful zucchini that long also and I lost no time making 2 loaves of delicious zucchini bread out of half of it the rest will be delicious with our supper. If you want to try something really good grill your zucchini, oh so delicious and healthy. My garden also is holding the promise of many tomatoes and peppers. I am so thankful for what the Lord is doing for us. I took some pictures to show you the blessings God has given.
I should not fail to mention the Lord has opened doors for me to find ways to get the kids school curriculum at a discount and free shipping, this is also something he destinctly promised to me that he would take care of this for me. In the past I have been someone who would fret and worry about everything. I would worry about my kids all the time, when I was with them or away. I felt I had to push to what I wanted or needed because if I didn't it would never happen and now with God in control I can relax and no that when the time is right he will let me know and give me a peace I could never have understood before. The Lord is wonderful and his ways are beyond my understand but always right on time. Praise the Lord for his many blessings.

Sounds like you've been busy this summer! We made strawberry jam last month- it is soooo good! Our garden is doing well, too. I love to watch it grow and eat all the yummy stuff and freeze stuff, too. God has really blessed us!
