We Asked........And He Sent Rain!

Good Morning..........sweet ladies,

Have you ever woke up and you are a just a little on weepy side? No reason......just a little low? Well that was my morning. I have so much to be grateful for.... even if it is just that I get to love my Savior one more day! Our windows were open in our bedroom and I could hear a drip drip drip out one and a light mist coming down out the another. Beautifulness to my ears! I was thankful for what He was doing. Maybe that was why I was felling the heaviness......sometimes the pressure of the weather gets a person. Anyway, I went to look on the web at the radar for our area. It was blue, green and some yellow by us. It looked like the yellow was  breaking away before the bigger part was was getting to our farm. I was sad, but not for sweet man and I  prayed.......asking the Lord if He would please make the area stretch over our farm with more rain.........please.......and then we said THANK YOU. I refreshed my browser......ladies.......He stretched the yellow.....with a little streak of orange that was coming for our farm. I was overwhelmed with gratitude..........HE HEARD ME AND OUR CRY OUT FOR RAIN and He stretched it over our farm!!!!!!! Now I am a weepy mess! He doesn't always answer my request when I pray.......but when He does and I can experience it in the"real" when we asked Him to protect our crop last year in the drought......and He did.......and now this morning when I was already a little low and He heard His princess.......and He answered!!!!!! Yahoo!  We can never give up ladies. I know for a fact some of you walk some very hard days........your sweet man does not love the Lord as you do, maybe your sweet man of many years has gone on to be with the Lord after many years of getting to sleep by his side and you are alone, or the momma who has a sick child......and you don't know what tomorrow will bring.....or you have a prodigal child who has chosen to go his or her own way........and you don't know if they will ever come back........or the spouse who lives in sadness and the doctors have put a name on it and you watch them get deeper and deeper in their sadness. I am hear to remind you...........please please "do not get weary in well doing" Galatians 6:9, don't give up.......keep on your to know your Heavenly Father better by staying close to Him in His Word. God is there for the broken hearted. I love love love Isaiah 61. 

The Year of the Lord's Favor

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendor.

It is and was a reminder for me when life was hard, I didn't think I could go on. He would whisper in my ear......"I have heard your request and I will get you thru this time........ladies He has never failed me. He has been so faithful, when I look back!

Well, I was not going to post about this today......but I guess it was what was the Lord was laying on my heart. Want you to know I praying for you that the Lord will meet you face to face and you will know it!!!!!!! 

This is my Milk House. One of my favorite places on the farm!

Yesterday I had so much fun getting the little milk house ready for the new chicks and new momma and her babies. I bought some cages for 3.75 to put them all into. This summer I want to build some shelves, so I can make better use of my space, but the set up will work for me for now. Twooo more weeks and I will be home on the stinkin' excited! God is good! Course He is always good!

When you come down into the milk barn you will see 3 cages to the left side. On the top are the 5 little black Banty Cochins......they are the newest babies I incubated. Under them is the new Momma and her 8 babies.......oh man do I love her. Her babies are sitting on her back allllll the time. Under Momma I have the birthday chicks from my kids.....they are filling out so pretty. Can't wait to see what they will all look like when they get bigger.

On the right of the first set of cages it looks like this. On top are the twelve babies that Missy Thatcher and Miss Milly hatched out.......they are so so cute! Under them are the new babies I bought at the auction on Friday. They are older chicks, one white and 4 buff.......they didn't cost me that was wonderful! They will add to my flock. I am all set up for now and I am enjoying going down and listening to them all talk to each other and of course they are talkin' to me also! 

Missy Red and Missy Blue Momma Cochins are due this week!!!!! They have about 12 under the two of them.....remember they are the one in the same nesting box? I have one other girlie that is also sitting....not sure when she is due and she has about 10 eggs under her. I have a few that are hatching for my farm friend in the incubator. Today I will set up the new incubator and put the 8 dozen eggs in it if they will fit...........we are busting out with life here on the farm! Wish you could be here!

Sweetness to my ears. 

Welcome New have been so me!

Hugs from the farm and may the Lord bless your day!



  1. I always enjoy your posts. They are so inspiring and some days I really need inspiring. I know what you mean about asking God. We have had bad weather in our area before and my husband and I have prayed and asked that God spare us and our home, and you can literally see the line of weather split around us and spare us.
    God is truly GREAT!

  2. lovely post! so thankful that you all received your much needed rain. I am familiar with those blue kind of days...
    "Joy comes in the morning" so when I wake up feeling blue, I can only assume that I woke up way too early and I just need to stay in bed a while longer.


  3. Hi Linda,

    I'm so happy that you got some rain. We had some rain a few days ago. Now I"m always praying for some rain. We have the ocean fog coming back again and that always brings a nice mist in the late evening and early morning hours :) :)

    Oh, your chicks are so adorable. I love reading about your chickens :) :)

    Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  4. So glad you got your rain! We had ours early last week, now it is warm and sunny! Love it! Blackberries are blooming, time to plant! You have so many new babies, its so exciting! God is wonderful to answer prayer isn't He! Isaiah is awesome isn't it!
    Have a good week, not too much longer for you! Yeah summer!
