It is raining outside, but it’s warm in my house. The furnace is running and it finally feels like fall!  Last night marked the end of harvest for us. The gardens and the fields have been gathered in and I am so thankful. With the wet spring and old equipment and busy schedule I wasn’t […]

Grace in the Crazy! I am back…

So much life has happened in the last several days and I’m just beginning to feel like a human again. There has been so much grace in the crazy of my life in the last few weeks… My daughter came home from her mission trip full of stories of God’s amazing grace as He used […]

Saturday Hush

My husband is playing piano while our little girl plays violin. “Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee…”  yes we do… Bread is in the toaster waiting to be slathered with something yummy. Water is heating for tea. No one has to be anywhere today. My mom […]
