When we bought our farm and started to build and design the lay out of things, I had visions of a multitude of fruit trees. Every year I planted at least 2 fruit trees -and to date we now have 4 plum trees, 4 peach trees, 3 pear trees, 1 quince tree, 2 orange trees, 1 lemon tree, 2 apple trees, 1 mulberry tree and 2 blueberry bushes.
The oldest are the plum and peach trees. I was so discouraged last year, because after all the work..preparing the soil, planting, pruning, fertilizing etc. we were not getting any fruit... so I got serious! I waited until I had some time to myself(RARE!)..and I went outside and started to pray. I asked God to bless my work and well I actually quoted back to Him the promises He made to me about blessing the work of my hands. As I did this, I walked around and touched the trees...God honored His promise. This year, for the first time, our trees were not just 'fruitful'...but BENT DOWN TO THE GROUND because they were so full of fruit! I just love it that He cares for the little things in my life as well as the big!
