Two wings lift a person up from earthy concerns: simplicity and purity. Simplicity should be in intention, purity in feelings. Simplicity reaches out after God, purity catches hold and tastes. ~ Thomas A’Kempis

Hierloom Tomatoes


I woke this morning, still not feeling fully restored, but we as believers are not to rest on feelings, so I am plowing on regardless :)
I was reading Smith Wigglesworth, and this is what he had to say: 'We may be very ordinary, but God wants to make us extraordinary in the Holy Ghost'..and as I was meditating on that, an old hymn came to me..'there is power, power, wonder working power in the blood, of the lamb..there is power, power, wonder working power in the precious blood of the lamb.
It all reminded me, that this life we walk, is all based on in the unseen. Some people, myself included have experienced the supernatural, but many have not, and still their faith is as sure and solid as a rock.
Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
~~~ oooOooo ~~~

Today I have Hierloom Tomato seedlings, that need to be potted up. Maybe I should have sowed the seeds a lot earlier, so the plants would be bigger by now, as the growing season is shorter here in Central Hawkes Bay. I found this image of the tomato seedlings on line..and whata neat idea..planted in upturned bottles, resting in the bottom of the containers !!! perfect, reuse, recycle!!. I must try this for next year.

The only thing with gardening, is that there is always something to be done, it talkes a lot of stamina, and no resting on your laurels. A seedling neglected for even two days will suffer. Last weekend my husband helped build a new raised bed, where the tomatoes will go this year. Its by the shed and is more sheltered. I may also put a plastic sort of shield on the sides of the bed, just to keep the cool wind off them for now...
okay thats all for now, have a blessed day people :)


  1. Hi Linda,
    It is so good to be able to pop over to your little cottage of content and catch up. I hope you are feeling better. Your garden sounds like it is establishing quite nicely. It is a constant battle here with the pests that want to ravage our new seedlings but I have lots of spinach and herbs to add to quiches and pies. And at the moment a new hand of our own bananas which I feel very blessed to be able to grow. I've been finding it hard to find time to keep my blog updated on a regular basis now I have a little home based business that also takes me to markets. My daughter is in NZ at the moment. She's with two friends in the SI and travels to Auckland on Wednesday before heading over to the Coromandel to visit her grandparents at the beach. On her return it is her 18TH birthday so I have to prepare for that. We have a gas fired pizza oven and will have toppings for people to make their own gourmet pizzas which means I will not be spending hours cooking up dishes in the kitchen but still I will be cleaning, sweeping and having everything ready for our guests.
    Thank you for visiting me and have a most blessed week.

  2. Hi Ann, lovely to be in touch again, & as you will have noticed I found you on Pinterest !! awesome ! Yes I am well now, it was a 24 hour sort of bug. I am pretty hopeless with updating this blog, since I am a Pintrest Addict and working part time as a reliever at a local childrens daycare (which I love). I pray your daughters birthday is a blessed time for her & that she has a lovely time here in NZ. Thatscool that you have a home-based business, I am always talking about wanting to make crafts etc and learn to make soap and possibly sell them, but all things take time !! & I seemt o run out of hours..with trying to keep up with everything.
    bye for now Ann, and once again, it was wonderfull to hear from you - God Bless
