Moms and grandma's looking after and feeding their children after a long sermon and hot day but still with a smile preparing the meal together. Lots of beans, noodle, rice, green curried lentils, roasts, salads of every kind, and of course dessert on the other table.. very good vegetarian meal.

I collected these little jars a year or two ago and just today filled them with poppyseeds and some with candied almonds. we are having a mini campmeeting at our church this weekend and am decorating the sanctuary with flowers and trees and with this charcoal drawing that I have put off finishing for a whole year.
then with matting i purchased at the craft store made these frames with a ribbon behind to put on the walls in between the windows. for such a worm as I
But drops of grief can ne’er repay
here they are, all alive and wiggling and snuggled together under a piece of damp paper..... here is their new home with more dirt, veggies and paper at the bottom.....
Some times I feel like a worm, in the dirt eating stuff nobody wants, and sometimes I fell good too --giving people around me rich things to think about and even some good things to eat ---
Isa 41:14 -
"Fear not, you worm Jacob, You men of Israel! I will help you," says the Lord And your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
the bible does not have too many positive things to say about a worm but in the case of this verse and the one where he taught Jonah a lesson. But look at this--how many good things come out of a worm in the end result!!!!.................

Here is the mighty Skeena River in flood......
and blackberries to munch on.......
The aroma of Skink Cabbages filled the air, I love them and the smell!!! They are huge- must be four feet tall, growing right beside the road......
A waterfall cascading between the rocks.....
and now I get to sink into my new bed that i bought today for $49.

The moment is here, when the day ends and sunset marks the beginning of a new day, a peace, a holy rest, and God steps his foot on the thresh hold of our doors, and we are ready for Him to come in!!!! It's breathless!!
I take this picture of the setting sun and suddenly realize that there are two crows in the middle sitting on the wire and wonder. I have gone thru this life alone many times wishing it were different. Many times God has seen me thru the daily chores of living, bringing blessing after blessing which i sometimes fail to see because i want things to go my way.
God can handle our getting mad at him, He just want s us to trust him in any situation.
So today this is what I have seen thru my window thru the words of Angie - 'Trust is believing in someone who is going to be with you no matter what the road is doing in front of you or behind you '- I choose to let God come into my door. I am still happy.
You ask Him too.....
