There is nothing like tromping around in God's creation to open up a heart of gratefulness. His creativity is astonishing. This weekend my family and I seized the opportunity of a bonus day off to watch things grow. This weekend we planted seeds for a garden that we'll hopefully see grow soon. We also collected Monarch Eggs, four to be exact, that hopefully we'll be blessed to see turn into butterflies over the next month. So grateful to teach my children that God is the author of life and He is the one who makes things grow.
