Word Filled Wednesday Proverbs 14:23

The purpose of Word Filled Wednesday is to share the WORD through a photo and a verse.


Wow, what a week. After last week's post, I had several people email me to ask WHERE were the pictures of the "harvest"?! Well, my husband went out to the garden one day and this is what he came back with. I was blown away! All that work we did - produced something! We certainly aren't profiting from it financially, but we are in different ways.

Our garden hasn't even been in the front of our minds this week, as we have been going through a rough time. The past four blogs were my way of helping myself and my kids go through some healing after the tragedy they witnessed this past Thursday. The obituary of the man named Ed, who died right near our home, shows that hard work brings about many things - but certainly not poverty. Ed was blessed with several children and an amazing wife. His hard work and determination in life meant he profited in many ways - and now his family can go on knowing that his hard work paved the way for them. This brings me joy.

Thanks for joining me today... for more inspiring posts, please visit:

Lex, this is WONDERFUL! I love that you posted this and I love that your harvest was amazing, and I love THAT SCRIPTURE.

I called my husband at work to look it up because I knew it would encourage him too.

What a blessing.
