Anxiety

Anxiety....

Hello my old friend.

You're back.

You've not been missed.

I could list all the reasons why I'm anxious, but it won't make the outcome any different.

Here's why:


I've learned over the years that when you're here part of your plan is to defeat my spirit and take away what God has planted in me...

a desire to serve and do what's commanded and right by His word.


When you show up, I remind myself that the phrase "don't worry" is in the Bible 365 times...a misstep? A wrong count?

I doubt it.

I'm Standing on the promises that God has given me in His word and through others in my support system...

God will never leave me nor forsake me.

Guess what?

That includes ALL the time.

Even when I'm weak...

Especially when I'm weak.


Lord have mercy on me, for I am just a sinner

First SNOW!!! 31 October 2014

SNOW!!! YAY!!

Okay, so it's really just a dusting at best...but YAY!!

There are two kinds of reactions in our house to snow...but I think it's easier to sum it up with a picture....




 Yep...that about sums it up...so of course I had to take a couple more pictures of it..I mean really...what did you expect from me?








 So then, we come in and have some hot cocoa and hot apple cider...because what else would you have on the night of the first snow??




I'll leave you with one of my favorite pictures of tonight....



Be blessed in all you do my friends.

Canning Tomatoes

Start with tomatoes (and a random cucumber thrown in)

Wash and sterilize your jars

Cut up washed tomatoes and put into jars

Process and listen to the PING of jars as they are cooling
Wash jars after 24 hours and check the seal, then remove rings and store

Enjoy!

Random Egg Collection

Daily we get anywhere between 6 and 8 eggs

Here are a couple of photos of what we usually end up with.....

The white one is a duck egg, the others are from the girls

One of the girl's eggs

Same egg as above only next to a quarter!
Omelet anyone? :-)

Birthday Bliss

I recently celebrated my birthday and the following are a few pictures of the event....



Fried liver, okra and dirty rice (the honey biscuit is missing *cough* lol)

Dehydrator from my awesome husband and wonderful Mom!

Egg basket because putting them in my jumper pockets was getting a little too precarious at times lol

Thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes, you have no clue how much they all meant to me and I'm grateful and thankful for each and everyone of you!
