Late Summer Green

I don't remember a summer that has ended so green.

I only wish I had more time to be out enjoying it.  And weeding it.

Our first week of school started out great and ended with most of us sick.

It wiped me and the littlest one out.  

Jamey took the older three and headed out of town to visit his family.

A couple quiet days to rest and regroup was just what I needed.

This week we give school another go.

It's our last week of only school before all the extracurricular activities begin.

Since they're all (but one) during the day, this means the running and the juggling of naps, meals and schoolwork falls on me.

I just need to remember to get myself outside every once in awhile.

It calms and centers me and reminds me that the God of creation is there waiting to grant me the strength to tackle each full-to-the-brim day.  I just need to lay it all down at His feet and ask.

There is none holy like the LORD: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. For there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God. I Samuel 2:2

  1. Wow...you've added more hives! I'm sorry you've been sick...nothing worse than when mama is sick. :(

  2. Jane,

    What a beautiful, peaceful series of pictures! As you note in your post, when you're raising your young ones and trying to keep up with all the household, homestead and gardening chores it's hard to get even a few moments to just enjoy what God has created and offered to you for stewardship. I urge you to take the opportunities that come and, when you've recharged a bit, teach your children to do the same. I'm sure you've heard it 1000 times, but the years God gives us to spend with the children go by sooo quickly and the wonderful childhood you are providing them will be a blessing for their entire lives. Be well and hold firm.



  3. That DOES NOT look like September! Enjoy that last blessed whisper of green.

  4. I love your photo's.


Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
