Pay Dirt!



We knew that this year we were going to have to buy some dirt. I don't mean the bags of dirt which we've bought so much ofin the last three years, but dirt by the pickup truck loads. This Alabama Red Clay has been an aggravation each year as we've attempted to garden with it. This morning dh went to a gravel/soil business that opened up recently to get the prices and see what was available.


The man who owns it says, "You came at the right time, you see that dirt over there, it's in my way and I'll give you as much as you want for free." He explained just how to use this free dirt to achieve the perfect mix. So, my dh and two oldest bags have just finished unloading their second load of dirt, it was still a bit wet and heavy. Their backs are aching but their faces are smiling. After all, they hit 'pay dirt'.


It is always such an encouragement when you're really trying and doing your best, to catch a break. Countless times this type of thing happens to us. Being at the right place at the right time. I don't believe in coincidences, as I know full well that I have a Divine Orchestrator in my life. Thinking upon the many instances where we have experienced the blessings of God, both large and small, I am reminded of this passage in Deuteronomy 28.


Blessings for Obedience


"If you fully obey the Lord your God by keeping all the commands I am giving you today, the Lord your God will exalt you above all the nations of the world.


You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God:


You will be blessed in your towns and in the country.


You will be blessed with many children and productive fields.


You will be blessed with fertile herds and flocks.


You will be blessed with baskets overflowing with fruit, and with kneading bowls filled with bread.


You will be blessed wherever you go, both in coming and in going."

That's really awesome Stephanie. Be detailed when describing your garden, ok? I'm living vicariously through everybody elses garden this year. :D
