Harvest Bowl – Blueberries, seedless cucumber, lavender, rosemary
The foundation of this photo is the six cups of blueberries needed for a blueberry pie. Sharon used them for the pie on Father’s Day and it’s being enjoyed much. I called it a harvest bowl when I added more bits of harvest. It’s always amazing and so enjoyable to partake of a harvest from your own garden. Blessings from God!
“When he (Jesus) went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things.” Mark 6:34 ESV
After this, Jesus fed the 5,000. Definitely a wondrous miracle, and we do need to be thankful for the harvest and food the Lord provides. But, we need to also bless His name constantly for the compassion He has shown us, and the eternal things He has taught us.
The Cardinals Hatched
Here’s a picture of the cardinals that hatched last week. They’ve actually grown enough now and left the nest, so I have put the net down over the blueberries. I think the birds have gotten some but it looks like there are still a lot left for the harvest.
I may have fussed a bit in my previous blog about them building the nest, but I actually thought it pretty neat. God’s creation is amazing.
“As an eagle stirs up its nest, Hovers over its young, Spreading out its wings, taking them up, Carrying them on its wings,” Deuteronomy 32:11 NKJV
The mother eagle stirs up the nest to make it uncomfortable for the young ones to stay. But then she provides the means and help for them to leave. Like the mother eagle, God will provide the means for what He is telling us it’s time to do.
