In the last month of 2012, God provided unexpected financial donations from four individuals wanting to invest in our vision for The Lavender Pavilion. [See my post from September 30]. We have not even established a non-profit organization yet, we only have shared our vision. Yet God prompted people to contribute. We were amazed and excited and even humbled. These generous gifts were yet another sign from the Lord which confirmed that this vision truly is from Him.
In my earlier post, I showed a couple of pictures of our first purchases for the prayer garden we plan to create. However, because of other demands on our time, we've not finished clearing and preparing the ground...so the Japanese Maples are still in their pots.
This is our third spring in the house, and this plant never has grown here before. This part of the pasture previously was filled with weeds, wild grass, and wild blackberries...all of which we slowly have been clearing. How did this plant get here? Did an animal carry a seed to this spot and drop it? Did God Himself put this particular flower into this particular place?
