Thanks also to the weather, my thoughts over the past week have turned to gardening. Hard-core. I am eager to begin a new garden for the year, and be able to enjoy delicious fresh veggies from my backyard. On the plan this year will be corn, pumpkins, cucumbers, green beans, peppers, and of course, asparagus. I had hoped to see an asparagus shoot poking its little head out of the ground when I went out to look yesterday, but alas, nothing yet. I'm sure I'll see something soon, though. Hubby and I went to the home of a coworker/friend this afternoon who was offering to give us some lilies that she had split from her garden, and she also gave us some black-eyed Susans to replant, too. They are sitting on our back patio right now, but hopefully they will be in the ground by tomorrow. I'll take pictures once they start growing and blooming.

Since we've started the Weight Watchers plan, I admit that I feel like I'm not eating enough. According to them, though, I am. I just feel hungry all of the time! I know that it's for the best, though, if I want to be healthy. It's nothing compared to what Jesus experienced in the desert--He fasted for 40 days and 40 nights! If that's not hunger, I don't know what is. Just the fact that He was able to go without food for over a month shows that He was more than human. When the devil came to tempt Jesus to turn stones to bread to eat, and prove that He was God, Jesus replied, "“It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’" (Matthew 4:1-5). Jesus could have done it, but it wasn't the reason that He was fasting to begin with. Maybe when I'm hungry, I should turn to the "soul food" that God offers each one of us every day through His word in the Bible. Hmm. Food for thought.
