Another Plan

A few weeks ago we were so swamped with work and impending deadlines that we had no time for anything.  We talked to the farmer who farms our land and told him we’d have no time for a garden this year.

I was really not happy with the decision.  I love gardening and I really like being able to take the organic food we grow to the shelter.  I’m sure it’s not much, but they need food not just non-perishables, healthy food.


The next day we were faced with some job site dilemmas that were to much to be over looked.  The builder’s integrity came into question yet again and sometimes it’s just the final straw.  My  conscience and pride went to war and we left the work and him behind.


No worries though, I thought I had a plan but someone much bigger than me had a better one.  When we said we wouldn’t be growing a garden I think the Big Man said “Oh. Wait. You’re not growing my garden?  How about some time off?”  And he opened our eyes to the things we were constantly ignoring because the work and money were good.

The next morning some of our regular customers called with plenty of work to keep us busy but not so busy we can’t garden.

Thought Number one this week – just when you think you have a plan, God smacks you and reminds you that he has a much better plan.

This years garden is about 4000sqft planted with corn, yellow squash, zucchini, butternut squash, pumpkins, kale, carrots, peas, green beans, nasturtiums, marigolds, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants.  We should have quite the yield when everything starts producing.  And I feel so much better.


While we were recovering from the stress and deadlines and being constantly on the move it went to clean out the chicken coop – which had been neglected.  We stopped by a friend’s house down the street for a bale of hay.  We got to talking and he realized that we would love going out on his boat fishing – me, I was happy just to be on the water.

My second thought this week – His plans are so much better than mine 😉
