Peaches....and prayer...

I have never eaten a more delicious peach than I did this morning.

It was from Ham's Orchards in east Texas, east of Terrell on Highway 80.

Mother and I had time to go there before the Will White Fourth of July Reunion and I'm so glad we did.

Here are two pictures I took....

 That's Mother getting some peaches.

We're talking DIVINE PEACHES!!
I have never tasted a sweeter peach.

I'm usually not a peach person.
I mean when (if) I buy peaches, I'm known to let them go bad.

Not these peaches. 

Anyway, I just had to tell you about them.
On a completely different note, I just read a great article for someone like me, a worrier.
It's Five Tips to Avoid Becoming a Chronic Worrier, which I can so be.

Recently I saw this on Facebook, I think from Susan P.... 

I thought that was great.

I can think of the worst events happening, and I just can't reign in those thoughts easily sometimes.
Ah, but it's improved my prayer life.  Well, when I realize I'm worrying.
You'd think I'd realize it right away, but sometimes I don't.  I just get to fretting, and I think maybe I think I'm just thinking.

Ah, but I've made it through my kids learning to drive.  And now being young adults, doing well, and not just in driving.
And I've made it through thinking every headache might be a malignant brain tumor (that's an exaggeration).
And I've made it through my husband's being a private pilot, in a tiny plane, that could fall out of the sky.  (That's not an exaggeration. It could fall out of the sky. - I will tell a story about that someday.)

Or every weird look by someone that might mean hate, or disgust, or anything else about me.

There are so many things to worry about.
I mean endless opportunities!
 I guess that's why this Bible passage is SUPER WONDERFUL to me....
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  
Philippians 4:6-7

So you can call me Anxiety Girl turned Pray-er (who sometimes reverts back).

And you can now call me a Peach Person!

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
