not my original post idea...

So today I am not doing my original thoughts because I cannot find my camera cord to upload pictures, so I am going to pat myself on the back and do a little celebrating.

Here it goes, I started doing the Farmer's Market about 6 weeks ago and have been having a blast. In the last few weeks some really great and positive things have happened with this adventure. I have been contacted by a Natural Parenting Store that has interest in wholesaling my diapers and I have a Mama that would like to have a registry with me for her upcoming baby shower. I never thought that this would even be possible. Now I know it is just some small steps but they are very exciting for me and well Green Acres.

I started this Blog to chronicle a simpler life, and well it just gets better every day. Our garden is in full swing, I have been helping some wonderful friends care for their children and I get to sew and answer to me and just my boys. Life is good and full of many blessings.

On Sunday we sang this Psalm. Little did I know how perfect it was for me and things that are happening here at Green Acres.

Psalm 30
1 I will exalt you, O LORD,
for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
2 O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
3 O LORD, you brought me up from the grave ; you spared me from going down into the pit.
4 Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name.
5 For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may remain for a night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
6 When I felt secure, I said,
"I will never be shaken."
7 O LORD, when you favored me,
you made my mountain stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
I was dismayed.
8 To you, O LORD, I called;
to the Lord I cried for mercy:
9 "What gain is there in my destruction,
in my going down into the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me;
O LORD, be my help."
11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing to you and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.
What blessings have been bestowed upon you lately? Look around I promise they are there.
