Why Gardens Lilies and Grace?

You may wonder where I got the title for my blog and why I decided to start a blog in the first place.
Well, I have toyed with the blog idea many times – even started a blog over a year ago, put two or three posts on it, (never actually hit the publish button on any of them- by the way) and now can’t even remember the name of that blog! Lol
This time I wanted it to be different. I decided to try again and put a little more effort into it — and actually hit the publish button!
Where did I get my title for my blog?
Thinking about what types of things I would like to share on a blog gave me the title.
Gardens — My hubby and I love to garden. I have learned all my gardening skills from him. We grow all types of things from veggies to flowers to herbs. While I am not an expert on the matter, I believe I have some things to share here. The reason we garden is to save money. Oh, yes, I am a couponer. Is that an actual word? I have several tips on saving money and/or spending less.
Lilies — There is a verse: Matthew 6:13. “Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,” Oh, how I worry. This is a stronghold in my life I am constantly working to overcome. My mom says it is inherited. My grandmother would wring her hands in worry. My mother is a worrier, and I am carrying on the family heritage. I would worry about anything. If there is generally nothing to worry about, I will just create something. It is only God’s grace that can help my overcome my worrying.

Grace — That’s always at the end isn’t it? Grace. We mess up. Daily. Hourly. A lot! And there it always is waiting for us. God’s wonderful grace. That is where we can truly find our peace.
