Lovin' My 40's "Just For You"

"Those Who Love You For the Sake of Their Lord"

There will come these beautiful souls, that will love you for the sake of their Lord! You probably won't know why and neither will they.


They will give to you, desiring nothing back.
They will keep you company, with beautiful reminders.
They will show you unconditional Love, Nothing tainted or scandalous.

These people are sent on errands from their Lord (Most times they don't know it.)

They just feel the need to assist.

So when they come into your life
Accept them.
Hold on to them.
Cherish them.
They will only be there for a time; as we all will.

A key component to this wonderful gift you've been blessed with is that they will not have this relationship with everyone else (though they are still charitable in heart and soul).

They are just for you, from your Lord.

My Second Garden 2016


We've been living in this house just shy of one year, I didn't know what a treasures we had because the yard was so desolate and a wreck when got here.

I dreaded leaving the small garden I had at the other house and was use to for 6 yrs (a maple tree, rose bush, and some other plants and a few other things I planted).

But, We quickly learned what a blessing and not to despair over what you leave behind, because God will replace it with something better and something that is good for you.

I am learning so much about gardening and I think I'm growing a little bit of a green thumb (Just a little one, Some stuff I still did so wrong).

We found Blackberries. They were small but ripe and sweet. They are not as big as the ones I remember picking when I was a little girl living in Alabama, but they had the same good wholesome taste. (Not the chemical taste that I taste from the stores).

CLICK ON PIC TO ENLARGE 
April showers brought may flowers... , I'm not sure of what each flower is called, but I do know I have a yard full of dandelions and their greens that I am allergic to, Alhamdulillah, Mr. Goff and sons keep the yard cut, Subhan'Allah, because I was truly sick some parts of my Ramadan because I couldn't stay out of the yard!

The cherry blossom tree produces beautiful cherry blossom flowers of two different colors (white and pink).. It also produce cherries, but they didn't ripen completely, falling before maturity, so no cherries this year... :/

I also wanted to make a cherry blossom oil from the flowers, but just didn't do it. Now their gone 
:(



We found what I think is Strawberries, but we were too afraid to taste them!

During Ramadan, We ate what was available from our garden (grape leaves, blackberries, turnips, beet leaves, stevia, spinach, basil, chives)... I actually made a green drink.



 We planted lots of red beans! But we are waiting patiently, and hopeful!



The kids took an active roll in planting! They loved it!
