What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Down the road abit



One of my favorite spots, thus far.




A few miles down the road there is a small Amish community and this home always catches my breath, especially the garden. Who knew a vegetable garden could be so lovely?!?

I took a photo for inspiration~ never can a dull vegetable garden be planted by the Newmans. Never again.
That might just be considered a sin.

I no longer plant dull vegetable gardens either, and let me tell you what a pleasure it is to look out and see my zinnias, marigolds, and cosmos growing happily amongst my tomatoes, beans, zucchine, etc.
The garden could use a good tilling right now, and the Japanese beetles are reeking their havok, but I still get joy from looking out my kitchen window!

I'm tired, and I misspelled "their," and I couldn't bear to leave it they're their there.

I, too, drool over gardens that include a cutting garden, and I've tucked away pages I've ripped out of magazines that show the type of cutting garden I plan to add to our veggies when we're in the country.

So pretty.

(And I bet the Amish men in this house aren't sloppy with they're leavings, either.)
