We have been having a heat wave here in central Wisconsin.
The garden has been growing fast with all of this heat and humidity. Thankfully we have also been getting some rain, the other night in a couple of hours we had 3 ~ 1/2 inches. I know some parts of the country can use rain, it needs to dry off here some, our clay soil is getting saturated. Today we are enjoying cooler less humid weather!
The beans and potatoes have grown together.
The zucchini plant has really grown, starting to see little zucchini. My yellow summer squash plant is looking good but the little squash is rotting. Have only gotten one so far that was useable.
The wind and rain on Tuesday night tipped over some of the pepper plants. Have tried to stand them up again, the ground is just to wet.
The wind also knocked the tomato plants off the fence. Before you could walk between the rows. Will need to try and get them back up off the ground.
The sign said "75% Road Ban," a warning to truckers that the pavement couldn't support loaded semis.
We need to recognize similar limitations in our own lives. Many people reach stages in their lifelong pilgrimage when pressures exceed their coping capacity. One more phone call, one more problem, and we'll reach critical mass or limitation. There's only so much anyone can take.
Fortunately, God understands our limits. Jesus referred to the people of His generation as "weary and heavy laden...worried and upset about many things...harassed and helpless." We can still identify with those demographics today. In fact even people filled with the Holy Spirit have a maximum burden-bearing capacity.
Just as a footbridge wasn't designed to support a freight train, our freestanding human frame isn't rated to carry all the traffic that comes at us on any given day. The best way to relieve the pressure is to delegate your responsibilities to the One who cares for you.
If you can trust Him with salvation, you should be able to trust Him with issues of less magnitude. If you can count on Him for eternal life, you can trust Him with the next 24 hours. ~Author Unknown~
It has been a long two months and I need to do something fun!
Before my shoulder surgery I had planned to open an Esty Shop. The plan was little girls dresses and some small quilting projects. I had started on the dresses and have four done. The surgery has put everything on hold for now, but I would like to giveaway one of the little dresses.
I am letting you chose either a size five or size four Sundress. There is only one size five, but you have a choice from two size four dresses.
So if you have a daughter, granddaughter, niece, or know of a little girl who would like a new dress, just leave a comment and let me know which dress you would like. I will enter your name twice if you mention the giveaway on your blog.
I will pick the winner next Tuesday (July 12th) in the morning.
Here are the dresses!
Flowers & Lady Bugs
Please make sure that I have a way to contact you if your name is picked!!!
