A Prayer Request and a Little Harvesty {phfr} - volume 33

{pretty} 


Out of all the sunflowers we planted this year, one survived.  It was one of the ones that John Paul had intended to sell at his pear/lemonade/tomato/sunflower stand so he considers it "his sunflower" and is quite proud.  It's an Autumn Beauty so it has several blooms all over and though the bugs and deer have been coveting it, so far it remains alive.

Also, it's my submission on Cari's theme today of "out."  Is there any flower that holds less shame than the sunflower?  It just bursts out, unafraid and unembarrassed to be what it is.  I could take a lesson, I think.

These are dragon tongue beans a variety we bought at our seed supplier simply because they looked neat and had a great name.  They ended up also being our tastiest bean we grew this year and there are plans to plant more next year.

{funny}


We harvested two edible and tasty cantaloupes a few weeks ago and this munchkin version also got picked.  It shriveled up in the fridge before I noticed that we should've cracked it open right away.

No pic of this this week but could I ask you a huge favor?  Would you please pray with us for a very special intention?  Brian is out of town again unexpectedly to be with his family.  I wish it were possible to share my heart here but I'm hoping you will understand and simply pray for Brian's family without knowing the details.  Would you do that please right now?  Thank you so so much, friends.  It means more than you know.


Linking up with Like Mother, Like Daughter and Cari's Theme Thursday.  Hope you're having a great day!

  3. Praying Mary! I know what it is like. We are in the midst of a very difficult family situation. I would love to pour out my heart about it, even to my friends in real life, but I really cannot. And that makes it very difficult. So, I will be praying Mary!!

  10. Isn't it great how God knows exactly what we mean when we pray, even if we are vague- and even if we, as pray-ers do not know specifics...He does!

    Peace be with you!

  13. Praying for your husband and his family! And yes, God knows who we mean. It's like God is an omniscient switchboard operator or just omniscient or something, right? :-)
