I Praise the God of Grace…

I praise the God of grace;

I trust His truth and might;

He calls me His, I call Him mine,

 My God, my joy and light.

’Tis He Who saveth me,

and freely pardon gives;

I love because He loveth me,

I live because He lives.

– Horatius Bonar

Gardens are for…

Patience….how long will it take for the tomatoes to ripen? It seems like they have been hanging here, green on the vine, for weeks!

And then this morning I saw this….

“They will come and shout for joy on the height of Zion, and they will be radiant over the bounty of the Lord…” Jeremiah 31:12

Welcome to the Parsonage Garden!

Why the parsonage garden? It’s pretty simple – my husband is a pastor of a church and we live in the 70 year old cape-code style parsonage – which I love.  My gardens are my attempt to express my love of creation and a way to give thanks and praise to the Creator. He gets the glory, not me, I’m just using His plants, and I get to tell that to whoever comes by and compliments the gardens.  So, come by often, learn about plants, and hear more about the Creator!

My gardening kitty. Her name is Pippa. (Don’t say anything about her weight – it bothers her – she’s on a diet and doing very well.)
