This afternoon, I wandered out again into my father-in-law's garden, admiring the bounty of cherry tomatoes.
Some ready to pick and others showing in greeness the promise of a tomato-mouth-explosion yet to come. It reminded of a bible text I read recently that a friend posted as her facebook status:
"So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you.
You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,
And praise the name of the LORD your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you,
And My people shall never be put to shame."
~ Joel 2:25, 26
Our lives are in His hands and although times are lean and troublesome, He will restore us. What a promise!
My little men go nuts when they get outside so it was very hard to get these photos of them. Most of the snaps I took were blurry or of the moment just after they were looking and saying "cheeeeeeeeeese" ie the back of their heads! There is no relaxation with little men around but they are a joy beyond all words. I can only imagine that the love God has for me (and you) are like the feelings that I have toward my two sons only His love is multiplied by infinity- and I love my sons tremendously. I am not afraid.
