God does not answer our prayers based on when we pray, where we are, what position our body is in, or in what order we word our prayers. We are told in 1 John 5:14-15 to have confidence when we come to God in prayer, knowing He hears us and will grant whatever we ask as long as it is in His will. Similarly, John 14:13-14 declares, “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” According to these and many other Scriptures, God answers prayer requests based on whether they are asked according to His will and in the name of Jesus (to bring glory to Jesus). So, what is the proper way to pray? Philippians 4:6-7 tells us to pray without being anxious, to pray about everything, and to pray with thankful hearts. God will answer all such prayers with the gift of His peace in our hearts. The proper way to pray is to pour out our hearts to God, being honest and open with God, as He already knows us better than we know ourselves. We are to present our requests to God, keeping in mind that God knows what is best and will not grant a request that is not His will for us. We are to express our love, gratitude, and worship to God in prayer without worrying about having just the right words to say. God is more interested in the content of our hearts than the eloquence of our words. God’s desire is for prayer to be a real and personal connection between Himself and us.
Ask holy spirit’s help - In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.” When the Christian’s prayers are too deep and too intense for words, when they are rather a sigh heaved from the heart than any formal utterance, then we may know that they are prompted by the Spirit Himself. It is He who is praying to God for us.

Kitchen Herb Garden - Easy project created with outdoor window boxes, some wood, paint, Flex-Seal, and some affordable brackets. Can’t wait to use this in times of cold and when we need a quick addition to some meals. 

Simply added some wood to the window frames, painted them white to match the trim. Used brackets to hold up the upper shelf and double sided tape to secure the bottom shelf. 

Because the window box had holes, I used broken ceramic tiles to plug the holes to prevent leaks. Then masked off the box so that I could spray the Flex-Seal. After spraying the Flex-Seal, I water tested for leaks and it still leaked. So I inserted small planters from previous garden purchases and put them in zip lock bags to further prevent leaks. 

I really like the simplicity of these boxes! What a great way to use the natural sunlight coming in.

EcoZoom’s Zoom Versa Rocket Stove

"EcoZoom’s Zoom Versa, model ZV-VMC26, is versatile because it can burn wood, dried biomass or charcoal. You use the top door for wood and biomass and the bottom door for charcoal and to control airflow. Like the Zoom Dura, the Zoom Versa features an abrasion resistant and durable ceramic combustion chamber with a 10 cm in diameter vertical section that forces the gases to mix with the flame, decreasing harmful emissions and adds a refractory metal liner to the inside of the combustion chamber that protects the ceramic insulation, increases the life of your stove, and improves combustion efficiency. This stove features our new hinged combustion chamber doors enabling for an effortless conversion from wood to charcoal fuels. Both the main combustion chamber door and the damper door (bottom door) have reinforced metal frames and have hinges that serve to securely close the doors and regulate airflow. The Zoom Versa also has a durable, reformulated 6-pronged cast iron stovetop that improves heat transfer for all pots including round bottom pots and woks."

propogating succulents

1 plant can equal hundreds.

How do you plant these? Completely submerge under the dirt or just partially?

Sometimes (rarely), I let the leaves alone until they develop roots. On this sort of succulent, that takes about 2 weeks. Maybe. I really don’t pay attention. Then I just pot them up. Most of the time, I just take the leave and stick them in my succulent farm box. That’s just a box filled with soil & sand. water them and then in a month, I transplant.

Two years ago, back when the book I’m working on was in its proposal stage, artist Joseph McVetty drew me a picture of a hammer. It’s scotch taped above my desk. I’m working on the final draft now, facing a deadline days away, and yesterday received a batch of new tool drawings from Joe, six all together. I am thrilled: a drawing of Joe’s will accompany each chapter in the book. These tool portraits have a potent sort of beauty, such clean lines, no bullshit or embellishment. A sneak preview here. You can see the strength of the clamps in this drawing, their ability to erase space.
