Elizabeth Barrett Browning, The Autumn

“Go, sit upon the lofty hill, And turn your eyes around,

Where waving woods and waters wild Do hymn an autumn sound.

The summer sun is faint on them—

The summer flowers depart—

Sit still—

as all transform’d to stone,

Except your musing heart.”

Faith in Planting Seeds Posted: Apr 19, 2023

"Faith is knowing the sun will rise lighting each new day. Faith is know the Lord will hear my prayers each time I pray, Faith is like a little seed. If planted, it will grow.  Faith is a swelling within my heart when I do right, I know!"

This is a fun spring time poem/song.

Hoping all the seeds we plan will grow!

That we may learn that while 'it is the glory of God to conceal a thing,' He is not only willing we should search out these hidden wonders, but will himself be glad in our new-found delight in them."

--Julia Bullard


Won't it be fun to search out hidden wonders with our Long Term Food storage (wheat, beans, rice, honey & powdered milk etc.)

What new found delight will be had in our cooking.

"The world is a colossal university, and no matter how far removed you may be from great institutions of learning, if you are alert and eager to learn you can always absorb something from your environment. We are all God's great kindergarten, where everything is trying to teach us its lesson."

 Orson Swett Marden


Happy Thanksgiving 2021
