A Sharper Focus Blog is now at: www.asharperfocusblog.com
That’s right, I’m moving! Last fall I took a web design class so that I could customize my blog more and expand my web capabilities. After a summer of working on the new blog, I’ve moved the blog from a wordpress.com site to a wordpress.org site and am ready for you to join me. Come on over and don’t forget to press the Follow button on the bottom right to stay connected!
I hope everyone had a great Easter Sunday. The weather here in Houston on Sunday morning was beautiful for Ecclesia’s outdoor services. Sean and I had a wonderful time passing around hot cross buns, seeing dear friends, and making some new ones!
During the Good Friday service at Ecclesia we participated in a community art project were the congregation drew or wrote a confession on a paper and then collaged them to large boards. The boards were on display during the service, creating a beautiful reminder of the need for Easter.
Sandra McCracken and Derek Webb led us in worship and our pastor Chris Seay gave the Easter message.
It was wonderful to see so many people get baptized.
And in Ecclesia style, Smilebooth was there!
I was up early this morning and took advantage of the cooler temperatures to take some more pictures of the garden. Houston has been blessed this year with a mild spring and which I think has really helped the plants have a great start.
We have bell peppers, poblanos and jalapenos coming in.
There are lots of green tomatoes, these ones are cherry tomatoes! I can’t wait until they’ve ripened.
I’ve already eaten two eggplant and I have a least four more coming in. We have some Black Beauties and a Japanese variety that are long and slender.
We’ve had lots of cucumbers.
The first yellow squash and zucchini also came in this week. The black berries look like they’ll be ready any day now, right now only these three are ready. About two weeks ago I also started getting lots of green beans. I’m hoping they’ll re-flower and I’ll get some more before it gets too hot.
I had two strawberries. That’s right had. Did I get to eat them, no. There was a raccoon visiting earlier this week and I witnessed him eat the two ripe ones! Rude I know. Hopefully I’ll actually get to eat this one and the others that are coming in.
Can you believe how tall everything is? It amazes me every time I go out to the garden. And to end with a picture of the sun rising through the trees because I thought it was lovely. I hope everyone had a nice weekend!
