My farm friend Gail, went at 6:00 in the morning yesterday to pick up our little bundle of fluffs. I got 3 female Cuckoo Marans and 1 male. A blogger friend talked about how they lay brown eggs. Had to try them out! Then Gail said that Black Australops were great for laying, so I got 6 of those. They are in a bushel basket getting all warm right now. The little chick that Mrs. Puddle Duck hatched yesterday wasn't doing so well, so I put it in the basket also. Doing great other then a little bad eye. I wonder if Mrs. Puddle Duck is to big for baby chicks. Hmmm, maybe so? I will move them to a cage today. They are so sweet!
We have a new pastor in our church. He is young and has two little ones and a precious wife. I was thinking before church that maybe some scones would bless them. He is from England and they do like their scones! I added a jar of the strawberry/rhubarb, set it all in a cellophane bag, tied a ribbon and it was ready for giving. We all love getting a little love right?
This morning Mr. Phil and I got an email from one of our son's. God has been breaking his heart to be a man of God. It is painful at the time, but when we see our sin for what it is, God can move in our hearts. As I have told you I have prayed for my children daily. When I see them become compassionate for Christ I am reminded that it is so worth it to tell our Heavenly Father our concerns, He listens. Last week every morning the Lord woke me up to pray at around 3:30 everyday, I know why now. Praise the Lord for His mercy. Don't quit praying ladies, it is essential! We are the Moms and He gave us the most important job! We may not think so, but that is not true! If we see things in our kids lives that don't line up to scripture, pray!!!!!! We can't give up on our kids, know matter how old they are!
Do you know someone that needs a little encouragement? Think about making a little something up for them. I received a package some time back from a sweet blogger. It was unexpected and came in my mailbox! I love mail whether it is in a comment, on my blog or something from my mailbox! One of my sweet bloggers named Anita sent me this package of adorable gifts. An adorable little purse for my bank cards, 2 hand knitted wash clothes and a sweet flower pin. FOR NO REASON OTHER THEN TO ENCOURAGE ME!! I want to be like her. Each was wrapped so sweet! I loved it, that she took the time to love on me! We all need that once in a while. Right? Thank you sweet Anita! Okay today, lets ask the Lord who He wants us to bless. Ready? Set Go and be sure to come back and tell us what you did, so we could learn from you!
Last night my family and I went to go pick some more sandhill plums for an hour. We got about 18 gallons. I am so totally excited I can't hardly stand it!!!!!! My family will be blessed this Christmas!!!!!!!
I woke up with my night gown on inside out this morning. HHHHmmmmm, I hope that is not how my day will be! I will smile if it is!
Blessings and hugs from the farm!
P.S. Just jumping back in here to tell you that Tammy at Flat Creek Farm is having a drawing and you must go over. It is going to be so fun, but it does stop tomorrow. Better late then never, right? So go over and tell her I sent you!
