June 1, 2023

The curlicue on my watermelon finally dried up, and I picked it. I thought it was about 40 pounds, but because I'm not as strong as I used to be, it ended up only being 26 1/2 pounds after I put it on the scale! Still, it's to biggest fruit I've ever grown!

I've spent the last few days canning food from my garden. I never thought to do that, being my cupboards are already full, but my daughter encouraged me since my garden is producing more than I can eat or give away, and it seemed like a great idea; however, now, I'm obsessed with it! It's hard work canning food, but so rewarding! I even canned some meat; I had never thought about it, but it will be great for a quick meal. Now all I have to do is open a jar, add a few ingredients, and I've got an instant meal I didn't have to cook all day! 

I'm happier than I've ever been! Are you content with your life? If you are not, you need to change your priority. Seek God first; work on your relationship with him, and value Jesus's sacrifice. When you make Him your priority, everything else will fall into place. It's not just a one-and-done kind of thing; it's a lifestyle. Slow down and enjoy what God has given you. Everything we have is because God gave it to us; we came naked into this world and will leave the same way. 

But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. 1 Timothy 6:6-8
