My Cup Runneth Over

I have been so very blessed this week.

We found out that we are expecting a wonderful new baby. By March 2011, we will have 3 beautiful children to fill our home and our hearts.

The sewing shop fixed my sewing machine and gave me a 75% (!!!) rebate. I was so sad when if fell off of my table and discouraged when I heard that the service rates had gone up. So when the repairman called me with the total I was so grateful.

And yesterday the Parks and Rec Department called to let me know that I can indeed have a third garden plot for free! They offered several more as well, scattered around the garden. I admit I was tempted. But I started with the plan for 3 plots and this one is directly next to my plots.

Here is a pic of my new plot - A-4. You can see it is backing A-3. It gives me access to another water spigot as well.

And my neighbor and friend, Floyd, is actually out there RIGHT NOW tilling it.

I am so excited. I see rows of potatoes, cabbage and onions. I can put out the kid pool for my children to while away the hours I labor there.

I am very thankful.

Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
