I just love these little guys! What they have to go through from this Farm Wife!
Good Morning Ladies,
This story I am going to tell you probably won't sound as funny as it was when I write about it, but I laughed so hard I could hardly talk. Last night our oldest grandson and the middle grandson (our oldest sons children) and I were in the kitchen. The boys were ready to brush their teeth and the last time they were with, they had left their little black bag that had their tooth brush and tooth paste in it at our farm. The oldest did not get to stay the last time, because he was on a missions trip with his church. He is 12, so he didn't have a toothbrush in the bag. Not even thinking I said, "Not a problem, you can use one of Grandpa Leo's tooth brushes". Now I had been in my little studio barn earlier in the day and had seen a tooth brush that Grandpa had received when he was in the hospital before he died and I thought that it will be nice to have it if one of the grand kids forgets their toothbrush. Well, I am still working away on the counter. I notice grandson isn't talking. I looked over and his mouth and face were priceless. It was obvious he didn't think my idea was a good one. I put two and two together (Grammies can do that fast) and realized he thought I meant Grandpa's used one. OH MY! I had to laugh so hard, then he and his brother were laughing so hard. Poor thing, thought Grammie was going to make him used a soiled old toothbrush. He did have a look of panic. I eased his mind and said it was a prepackaged one. It really was a fun memory for us all to tucked in our hearts!!!!! I am sure you have one, please share it with, we all would love to hear it.
Today will be filled with fun. Grammie and Poppa Camp on the farm! Most of the grandkids will be here and they will be working on their fort. They love the mailbox idea that Ian came up with. They are writing notes back to him this morning. This could be a good thing!
Mr. Phil and I are going to measure out the new fence that we have been hired to work on. The family that we worked for before, the one we built a few weeks back? We got another job. Mr. Phil needs my help! So glad............we have alot of talking time. I listen to him, because he is a wise man. We will do that early this morning, than I will be back to help the kids build on their fort. I want to put a floor above their fort and start building up! I have never done anything and I may have to interrupt Poppa a few time, but it will be fun! "Swiss Farmily Stubbs" we will be! Get it, Farm.....ily? Sound stupid? smile! The kids have watched Swiss Family Robinson's with me many times, over the years. It is one of our favorites. You haven't watched it? Get it, it is adorable.
A capable, intelligent and virtuous woman, who is he co can find her? She is farm more precious than jewels and her value is farm ABOVE RUBIES or pearls. Proverbs 31:10
A few things I want to leave you with. I am not sure if you get this magazine, but it is a favorite of mine. It is called Above Rubies. It is wonderful, there are articles for all age women. They cover everything from Adoption, Family Life, Recipes and much more. It will be a major source of encouragement to you! They also have women Retreats and Seminars in the United States and abroad.
Revive Our Hearts with Nancy Leigh DeMoss is another favorite of mine. You can listen to her radio program right on her website. It is worth going to and gleaning from a wise woman. Nancy has a speaking Schedule that you can look up on the site and Pure In Heart Conferences.
She has written a book called Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free ;
This is the best book! Helped me a lot to think biblically and in truth.
Some years back our family was out at Family Life Today in Arkansas. We had a friend that worked there and we were able to have a wonderful tour of the place. We went to the recording part of the studio and there was Nancy sitting doing a program. She was not busy later in the day, so he asked if we would like to meet her. How fun would that be? Before we left we all held hands in a circle and prayed. She prayed blessings over our two daughters. Course I wept as I heard someone asking God to be over our daughters purity and life. It was a memory I will never forget. Hope you find enjoyment on the websites.
Off to measure out the land for the new fence. My honey needs me! That is a good feeling! Thank you for all of you who prayed for a job. God heard you. We thank you!!!!!! I am praying for you all. You are such precious gifts to our family, from the Lord!
Blessings and hugs from the farm,
