The Giver can be Trusted

As I choose to focus on God's goodness and his love gifts to me, I find my faith in Him growing.  I am learning to trust him in all things, not just the things that seem out of my control.  I was reading John 6 in the Amplified version, and it describes belief as this:  adheres to; trusts in; relies on; has faith in me.  It's active, present tense, being practiced moment by moment.  My God is Truth and I can Trust him always. Forever.
 Tim's parents with all the grandchildren...yes, you counted right--7 girls and 1 boy all 6 years and under!

Oh how the days have been flying by!  I've been busy being outside when it's nice, like the day I took this peach blossom in our friends' orchards.  Our arms got some color, and we even wore short sleeves!  The girls  biked 2.5 miles and I jogged with Maverick.  It was a glorious afternoon!  Our weekend was filled with yardsaling for me and Mav and a soccer game for the girls and Tim.  Of course, I missed our only win so far, and Hannah scored her first 3 goals!!  We also got together with Tim's family and I got to meet new baby Chloe!  Such a precious baby girl

Here's what I count as gifts from God this week:
Yardsaling with family and good deals
sprouting herbs in pots
plant order arrived
Late nights for Tim and now truck's fixed
3 goals scored by Hannah at game...and I missed them
1st win of soccer game
Day spent with in-laws and new baby Chloe
Weeding flower beds
Blooming orchards
Growing asparagus
Fields being planted. Gardens plowed
Tulips!  gorgeous!
checking curriculum for next year
Baking with last year's zucchini--chocolate cake!

What a stunning photo and it goes so well with that verse!!

And I love the shot of all the grandkids! Isn't it funny how some families are so lop-sided in regards to gender! :) We're girl-heavy on my dad's side!
