It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High; To show forth thy loving-kindness in the morning and thy faithfulness every night….For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work; I will triumph in the works of thy hands. Psalm 92:1,2,4
I decided just to have a thankful post today. My heart is full of it thankfulness.
I have never been so happy to have 2 dreary days full of rain! Our garden, grass, trees…..all needed it so much!
And to wake up to it this morning? Heavenly! The steady rain and cool breeze just lulled me back to sleep.
Todd has been out watering (our garden only!) faithfully, and we're on our 3rd week of harvest. It's still pretty early, but this haul of tomatoes will make a double-batch of salsa.
As you can see in the far away picture, there's still a lot of green tomatoes on the plants. Eventually I'll have enough coming in to can the tomatoes, too.
It's funny….I really don't like tomatoes or green peppers by themselves. But I sure do enjoy some fresh salsa and chips with those same ingredients!!
I made a boatload of it last year–and have already made 2 double-batches this year.
The final day of harvesting tomatoes last year, Todd brought in a 2nd box load–at least twice the size of the bucket above–again! He PROMISED me it was the last of the tomatoesI (Can you tell I was sick of tomatoes?!)
He didn't keep his promise! He found a few more hiding….
But the Lord was good and I even actually had a need for them to finish up a batch of something.
NEVER in my wildest dreams did I ever think I'd CAN TOMATOES, of all things! But I use them for my spaghetti sauce and other recipes all year. I love being able to go down and pull a jar from my shelf.
Thank you, Lord, for all your blessings–including giving me a faithful, hard-working husband. Thank you, My Love!
Hoping you're counting all your blessings today, too!
