your hand is God’s hand

WOW!!! God is amazing. Read this Godstory! Thus began my facebook status this morning.

It quickly outgrew a facebook status and worthy of an entire blog post.

We don’t realize how much our actions (even small ones) affect others around us.

the rain also brought with it some of the most

beautiful rainbows!

I miss my garden this time of year.

Somehow in the garden is where I feel most connected to my Creator.

I have curled up in the rows of beans and poured  my heart out to Him many a time.
