Many Blessings...

This summer my husband planted a large vegetable garden.  They started to grow and we were excited to eat some delicious home grown vegetables.  One day we went to check on the garden and there were parasites all over the corn.  Hundreds of beetles destroying what we (and by we I mean he, I didn't touch it, smiles) worked so hard for.  Sadly, there are parasites out there that want to destroy your marriage, too.  Join me at Woman to Woman to read more...

Continuing to count my blessings for 2012:

451. Tough lessons from Daddy God.

452. Generous people helping me to get a new computer.

453. A computer genius that could get my files from my dead computer.

454. Listening to my daughter practice her piano and sing along as she does.

455. Welcoming a new friend and team member to Woman to Woman Ministries.

456. Rain.  Even though it wasn't much, it was rain after so many weeks of drought.

457. Fried green tomatoes.

458. The opportunity to bless people in my church community with free school supplies, free socks and free hair cuts for back to school.

459. God using me and helping me to step out of my comfort zone.

460. The opportunity to pray with a complete stranger, in the middle of Dairy Queen, for her missing teenage daughter.

461. My wonderful sister who took my two oldest children to the amusement park for a day of fun and Christian concerts.

462. The beautiful flower bush in my front yard.

463. The secret place where Jesus and I meet.

A Holy Experience


  1. I praise God for being IN my life, for being able to talk to God whenever I need to, for the blessings He has given to all of us, for my wonderful family, for the forgiveness He gives to me.

    Jenifer, I want to know where you got the green tomatoes so you could have fried green tomatoes. It has been so long since I have had any of them. Couldn't you have shared with me. *smiles*

    Blessings to you and love you.

  2. I got them from 94th and Parallel Parkway. The white house with a tomato sign out front. She said because of the drought there is very little this year. I will see if they have any more and bring some over for lunch next time we swim. :)

  3. 1. #455
    2. My husband giving me the chance to have the night alone, so I can rest and write.
    3. My husband, I love him so much.
    4. My babies.
    5. Friends that live in Kansas. :)

  4. I love reading your blessings, Jenifer. They reflect relationship and joys and opportunities to serve. You reflect the beauty of God here.
