Today I am thankful for TREES!
Specifically, MY trees.
My request for Mother's Day was a hike around our property. I hadn't had a chance to walk "the back ten" yet...and it was breathtaking! (In more ways than one, HA!). Quite a trek for me, but it was so beautiful and worth it.
I'm still in awe of everything God worked out for us in finding our property. These trees should have been at the top of my list, but I didn't really have the faith to ask for them. God in His mercy knew how much I would love them though. Pure bliss for this tree-loving country girl. <3
Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish! We don’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging that we’d done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing, Eph. 2:7-10, MSG.
Hi, I'm Kristi! Christ follower. Farmer's wife. Mom. Gardener. Artist.
I love to create surface design patterns and mandalas (and, and and...). You can find my work at the links below. We live on a little 20 acre farm in the middle of nowhere, and that's what I mostly like to blog about. Home, gardening, Jesus, cats. All my favorite things.

This is one of my most very popular designs. I love seeing my fabric on children's clothing and accessories. <3
