Sunday Snapshot~ The grip

so about last August we discovered that the pumpkins we plopped over the back fence after Thanksgiving were growing. i was ecstatic. anyone who knows me well, knows i've had a serious pumpkin fixation since i was about 5. maybe even earlier. choosing a pumpkin is always a big deal , i love the sizes, shapes and colors and textures and often spend way too much every year making sure i have a bit of each on our deck and front porch. i used to tell the kids when they were little that you had to get down on the ground and put your cheek on the pumpkin and if you could feel it vibrate than that was to be the one you took home. can ya believe we had a few last fall still doing it? i won't say who:)

even better are the vines. i am so amazed at how these buggers latch on to anything and everything around them to anchor down and grow. i was so excited to watch these unexpected pumpkins develop and took lots of pictures over those few months. in keeping with my super late post tradition lately i decided to put'em up!
they make me think of my never ending struggle of making time for God and keeping a steady grip on His word.some days i'm so busy going in every direction i forget who comes first.
but once i get my grip again on my priorities, it never fails to amaze me how much better my day goes seriously, look at that grip! i mean, if these guys can be that strong i can too!
after all, it can only lead to something wonderful....... right?
God is good:)

  1. You mean you just dumped your old pumpkins over the fence? And now new pumpkins are growing? That is SO cool! Can't wait to see what they look like come October :)
