Decorating Has Begun on the Farm!!!!!

Good evening sweet ladies, 

I will let everyone know on Thursday who won the two 

Isn't this beautiful? I pinned this to my CHRISTmas decorations on my  Pinterest.......... I have all the pieces to make this up. Looks pretty simple to me. When I get home I work a few hours each afternoon to do a little decorating. As I have said before, winter and CHRISTmas........ are my very favorite thyme of year! One of our son's was born on CHRISTmas day......maybe that has something to do with it. I remember nursing him with the CHRISTmas lights.......a precious memory!  

I decorated this little scene on one of my shelves. My sheep reindeer have been a part of my winter decorating for many years. I found these sweet trees just a few weeks ago, I knew exactly where I was going to put them. Like the way it turned out! 

The other day I had been out by the Potter's Shed and noticed that the juniper trees were loaded with bright blue berries! I didn't have time to cut some of the branches....but I knew I would! 

So when I got home tonight.... with basket in hand...... I went straight out to the juniper trees and cut a bunch of the branches off. The berries seem to be more beautiful this year. Anytime I can use some of the natural items from the farm I use them!!!!!! 

I have plans for the greens and berries......tomorrow I will show you what I have done. 

I made up this jar last year and took it to the college........ 
I am taking it I'm taking a little Home there! 

Are you decorating yet......would love to know what you do special! 

I will draw the names for the soaps when I get home tomorrow (Thursday). I can't wait to see who wins!!!!!!

I was sharing with a precious friend the other day about a young man at the college who we care about and has never accepted the Lord. God had him working in the kitchen with our family for a reason and we prayed often for him. I would have to work by him at different times. His life style was different than ours......but we saw neat things in him and would tell him so. We would be very open with him about our faith in Christ...he would ask questions and we would answer. Any way he doesn't work there was hard for me to see him go without accepting what Christ had done for him. Before he left he told me that he listened to us and that we made a difference in his life. I said we would have something for him and would send it to him. Again I was sharing this with my friend and she wanted to be a part of what we were doing. We wanted to get him a Bible. My friend sent a check and it came in the mail today........she wanted to be a part of the blessing...God is good!  I will go to the college bookstore tomorrow and buy one. Would you please pray for this precious young man? I would tell him that we were praying that God would make Himself known to him....we will keep praying until our prayer is answered.....thank you so much if you join us!! 

Hugs to all you precious ladies!!!!!!!
