Deck Sitting

Mom and I are making good use of a beautiful day. After weeding and lunch we are settled on the deck. Mom is reading and I am writing.

I don’t know if she spends much time outdoors but she will while I am here. Sitting outside is on my top 10 list of things I enjoy doing. However…sitting outside in dry Colorado is very different than sitting outside in hot, humid Illinois.

Check back with me later in the summer to see how my deck sitting forays are going.

Garden Lesson

A dry, warm day has arrived in Illinois. My mom and I spent several hours pulling weeds, I pulled, she bagged. There is a lot more to do but it is a start.

I love pulling weeds, there is something about removing what does not belong to allow what does, more room to grow.

How like our lives. When we allow worldly things and busyness to fill our lives there is no space for the God things to grow.

Is it time for weeding?
