We will rejoice and be glad in it.

REGARDLESS of what else is happening..............................................

Sharing some pictures

I did post most of these on my facebook but I want to share them here as well.  I haven't been able to post alot on my blog recently, I have been busy getting my wholesale orders made up and shipped off to shops.  Here are some pics that I took around our gardens and outside our shop.  Enjoy!!

Two of my best dollies, my grandies!

Red Sunflowers

Path into the garden, beans to the left and right!

This sunflower is HUGE.  My hubby is 6"3" tall and it is about 5 feet taller than he is!
This is one sweet annie plant or I should say bush.  It is as tall as my husband.

What a difference a couple months and great soil makes!  I can't take credit though,
my hubby is the great gardener around here!

My memory of the events of 9/11.
I lived most of my life in the Hudson Valley Region of NY, just up the river from the city.  However, I moved to PA prior ot 9/11.  My sister(#4) called to inform me that a plane had flown into one of the twin towers.  While on the phone, we both watched the t.v.  I contacted my hubby at work, all the while staring at the t.v. and holding the phone with my sister.  My other sister(#3), called on my other phone line so I now had eyes glued to the t.v. while a phone was glued to each ear.  We all 3 watched in horror as the second plane flew into the second tower.  Needless to say, we sat all day in front of our televisions as the events unfolded.  Pure shock.
In the days after the horrible events took place, the 4th sister(#1) in our family of 4 sisters, still living in the Hudson Valley, would spend her days with others, cooking literally TONS of food, and then she would go into the city each evening with her son, husband, and others to feed the policemen, firemen, and other volunteers.......My sister is gone now, taken from us a few years ago by cancer.  She would have given the shirt off her back, that is just how she was.....  So much has happened since then, however, it's left such a mark it feels so recent.
Never, never, take our freedoms for granted.
There is so much fighting and such leading up to the elections.  Just get down on your knees and pray for God to give you wisdom when voting, wisdom to pick the right leader of our nation.
And regardless of who gets in office, they will need our prayers as well.
I love my country!
