While eating big, beautiful salads today, I was reminded of yet one more thing I'm grateful for here at We Will Go. I am thankful for our ministry's community garden. The city has given us permission to use two lots that used to basically be neighborhood dumps full of beer bottles, cans, wire, and other rubbish. Now, thanks to the generous donations of ministry supporters and lots of hard workers -- missionaries, volunteers, and neighbors -- we are picking gorgeous squash, salad greens, peppers, strawberries, and more right from those former trash heaps. And I and the other missionaries aren't the only ones who benefit from the produce, anybody that wants or needs food can freely pick from the garden. The collards are especially popular in the 'hood. I personally can't wait for the peppers and eggplants to be ready for eating.
Thank you, God, for this life you've given me. Once again, You've shown me that when I follow you, I'll never cease to be amazed at the goodness that comes from it. Sometimes, it is even tangible, able-to-be-tasted goodness.
