Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luke 2:14

peazzzz-on-earth

We all have those peas in our lives…sometimes we are the pea.

Throughout the year, Grandma’s Favorite Dishcloth is knit during particular sporting events, when The Knitter can hardly excuse herself for sitting in front of The Box without something to occupy her hands…but not something that requires a great deal of thought or talent. Later in the year, every Christmas stocking beyond the immediate household is stuffed with those same dubiously handy dishcloths, both as a genuine gift and a poke in the ribs.

But before the stuffing of stocking or the mailing of boxes this Season,  Hitty Hedydd declared that the DD’s (Dratted Dishcloths) should be put to good, illustrative use in a Fairy Tale for a Kinder World.

If that is how God clothes the grass of the field,which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you-you of little faith? 

                                                                                       Matthew 6:30

On the north side of the gray house lie both Nathaniel’s Bower and the “Oh, Ye of Little Faith” Garden. Nathaniel’s Bower hosts the fig trees, already sleepily shedding their leaves as days grow shorter.  In contrast, the “Oh, Ye” Garden is full of life; home, at the moment, to the ridiculously tall and spindly coreopsis, some of them eight feet tall! The Hittys love to lounge in the window that overlooks the garden, especially during Autumn, watching as fat bumble bees, migrating butterflies and jeweled hummingbirds zip, flutter and dart among the brilliant orange blossoms.  Snip thinks rambling through the flowers is even better.

Tiptoe through the tickweed…

The dollies also enjoy the gentle taunts and jabs of the neglectful gardener crowing that the “weeds” had once again blossomed, as predicted, despite the faithlessness of others ready to wreak havoc with their rakes and hoes.

The garden had evolved, slowly, over several years from a tidy garlic, basil and pepper patch to this wild, neighbor-provoking tangle. With a handful of wildflower seeds, waves of poppies, cosmos, sunflowers and now, tickweed had graced the garden, providing nourishment for travelers and entertainment for the residents.

Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. 

Matthew 7:20

Raised from a pit, today, the very first fruit of the little…er…peach tree was harvested and consumed. The tenacious little tree had clung to life in an inauspicious spot in the garden and had gone unrecognized for a number of summers. It was widely assumed to be an apricot tree, planted on a whim, engendering little care or even hope. What a surprise to find it bearing beautiful, delicious peaches!

Just Peachy

“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father…Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.”

“…it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
they will see the glory of the LORD; the splendor of our God.”
