Sabbath Blessings

I woke up to a beautiful Sabbath morning. Birds singing. Trees and flowers in bloom. A promise of good things to come. Good food coming soon from our garden. I've got 35 Brandywine tomato plants started. Yellow squash, parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, cilantro, eggplant too. Onions, spinach, kale, peas planted in garden.
Life is peaceful here especially compared to the folks in Japan after the terrible earthquake and tsunami. I can't imagine what that would be like and hopefully I won't ever have to experience that.
Sometimes there's things in my life that stress me, get under my skin. But by the grace of God, I get through. He helps me have the right perspective and my mind where it should be. Until I start looking at the problem(s) again and take my eyes off Him where they should be- where they need to stay.
"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer." Psalm 19:14
