A gift of pure enjoyment
Recently we bought a home. This wasn't even a home I would have considered looking at the pics online. There was an electric blue room and a hot pink room where both rooms were color on the floor the walls and the ceilings. The bathroom looked as though you needed a tetanus shot before you entered it. However we went and looked at it. It was mid march covered in snow. In needed some work to make it livable. When we were done making it livable the snow had melted and we were in for some trouble. We looked around at our yard and seen it was an entire mess. We've found bones, glass, and mattress's all around our yard. The shrubs and such are way over grown. It looks like nobody took care of it for the past 15 years. However you can go out lay in the backyard listen to the birds chirp. It's such a beautiful noise. A god given noise. Now that we're past the point of things blooming I've found that I have another beauty around the house. We have a mulberry tree and alot of "black caps" some people call them blackberries etc. It's great to be able to walk outside to pick some berries to have on yogurt or on your cereal in the morning. Totally blessed there. We are working on the outside of this house while it's warm out and then this fall when its getting colder we will unpack!!! That's right we're camping out of our own house! Next year we intend on buying some trees to start apple, pear, peach, and plums growing here. We'd love to have strawberries, blueberries, rhubarb, grapes, and then grow a garden. I would love to have asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, squash, potato, onion, sweet potato, cantaloupe, watermelon, peppers, pumpkin, and our own little herb garden. I know it won't all happen next year or start producing next year but with love, care, and prayer I know we will be fruitful.
