Contentment

Father, I have such a feeling of contentment today.  Of course it’s Sunday evening and that means Mark and I just spent another wonderful Sunday together.  Oh how I love our Sundays.  Today we got a lot done, we built a new big pen for the turkeys to roam and “be turkeys” in.  I just love seeing them enjoy it.

We freshly manured, raked-smooth and heavily mulched all the planters, planted more and mulched the beans, planted pumpkins, finished weeding the corn and strung some more string on the tomatoes.

Most of it is weed free now and we about have the garden to where it’s just a matter of going out and picking the harvest.  We also got all the potatoes dug and sweet onions pulled and curing.

Feels so good.  I’m so glad Mark and I both enjoy gardening and working together like this.  Being outside this morning and feeling your gentle breeze and the morning cool before the broiling afternoon, I just felt such a sense of peace and contentment.  Lord thank you so much for this beautiful life you’ve given me.  I am in awe of the blessings you have bestowed upon me and I wonder why on earth I have deserved such a blessed life.  I am so unworthy.  Again I raise my hands to you and say:

Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup, you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places!  Psalm 16: 5 & 6
