Here a little, there a little

I love the verse in the Bible that talks about “here a little, there a little, precept upon precept, line upon line”. Building up to something. Working at it. Continuing. Adding to until the finished result.

Most days I feel like that’s what I’m doing all day with everything. I seem to never, ever get finished with anything. It’s just here a little, there a little. Pick up a few things here on the way to start a load of laundry. Wash a few dishes before it’s time to start lunch. Weed a little in the garden while checking to see how things are coming. Mow a section of grass before dark to get finished before the week is up. Throw a few flower seeds in the ground on the way to feed the animals. Write out math problems for a child all the while worrying about the one whose math hasn’t been checked in a while. Try to get in a few spelling words that have been neglected. Grab a towel and dust the piano because it just looks disgusting.

Here a little, there a little. Story of my life.

I sure do hope it’s counting for more than it seems to. Knowing that is the way Christ works a lot of the time is encouraging to me.

Precept upon precept, line upon line.

As for the pix, hat day was happening this week.

Suppers have been wholesome and bountiful, thanks to the harvest that’s a-coming. That’s cheesy potatoes, cornbread muffins, turnip greens, fried zucchini, and salmon patties.

In the last picture, the grass is continuing to be mowed as I do here a little, there a little. An hour’s worth until the next evening. It will get finished. It may be when it’s time to mow the first section again, but alas!

I would love to hear from you if you find yourself doing here a little and there a little as well.
