That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” - Titus 2:4,5

A Family Affair
Since 2008 we have had a family garden. When I was a child I remember my mom planting a garden. She has a GREEN thumb. We really enjoyed harvesting the cherry tomatoes. Well, I didn't really participate in my Mom's garden -other than eating from it. When we were newly married my husband told me that one of his desires was to have a garden; so I decided to make his desire come to pass. He came home from work one day to find a huge mess in the backyard...but he didn't mind after he found out why it was there! We really enjoyed that garden. It was my prayer garden. I spent a lot of time in prayer for us and others while I was working in that garden. The following are a few photos from our first garden. Click here to view more.
This year I am happy to report our garden did better than last year. Last year we only had four pepper plants and four tomato plants. This year we had tomatos, bell peppers, onion, a corn (litterally - the floods we had caused all but one seed from both plantings to rot), squash, green beans, lettuce, and watermelon. It truly was a family affair! We had a great time tilling, planting, weeding, and watching it grow. Now we are enjoying eating from it. To view a few more photos click here.
