Hello sweet ladies.........
the farm has been a buzzing! Cleaning, decorating, making sure the horses, cats and "Girlies" are all watered and fed. (Willow and the other three girls are over at my friends farm......they will be coming home soon). When the weather gets cold we have to make sure everyone is dry and warm for the weather. It makes for a little more work, but I always know they will be able to weather what ever comes. Tonight it is to get down to 10 degrees........cold! I have one more day at work and then we will be home for almost a month. They gave us Tuesday off.......hard to take, but someone had to do it......I am smiling!
I told my friend we needed to take a pic. I would share with my sweet ladies! Wish we could have shared a bowl with you all!!!!!!
Yesterday was a treasure day! We were invited to some old friends home. We had seen them when we were on our date night at Wal-Mart (anyone have those kind of dates)? The men talked and so did my friend and I. 20 years ago she started teaching and our paths separated due to time. She has always handed down old antiques and such to me when she would get tired of them. I loved it! She had a couch. It is sweet......put it out in the refuge cabin and will be making a slip cover for it! If anyone one of you have old 100% cotton sheets that you are not interested in and would like to sell them......I would be soooooo interested. Let me know. Anyway we were to be at their home at 9. We picked up talking like we had never had "time" in between! Do you relate? Most of us have stories! She served me yogurt with a huge helping of blueberries and raspberries. A simple act of kindness I know, but for me sitting with another lady one on one across the table was just what my women heart needed. It was so wonderful to just sit at her oak table.....and share what the Lord had been doing in each of our lives and spending some time in prayer. I don't get to visit much... so my cup was filled to the brim! We walked through their forest.....and they shared their plans and dreams......they also want a place of refuge for people. That blessed my heart! They need the wooded area picked up........I know just the boys from the college who would LOvveeeeeeee to help! They were encouraged to know someone would help. Isn't that what we are to do for one another? True friendship!
19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings,having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
I love this verse! Hope it encourages you and you will ask the Lord who you need to encourage this CHRISTmas season! I am sure He has someone for you! I know I have some more I want to encourage!
Hugs to all you precious ladies and have a restful SONday!!!!!!!!
