We have been having so many storms........with the storms we lose internet service. Some parts of our day we have it and other days we don't. It has been hard to not be able to post for sure! WE have received so much rain out of the storms though. Lots and lots of rain. It has kept me so busy in the garden and caring for the farm outside! I have enjoyed it! A lot!!!!!!
Yesterday was a sweet day. I have spoken before of my sweet friends Marian, Rosa and Grandma Yoder. I think I have also asked for prayer for Marian before because of the cancer she has been battling for the last few years. She has been living with a family where the Momma of the home is a nurse. It has helped Marian immensely getting her medications on track so she could stay on top of the pain.
I have a book called "If Teacups Could Talk" by Emilie Barnes (looks like there are some used ones for 1 cent).......this is her recipe......I have made it many times and it never fails! It is so so good! Hope you enjoy the Lemon Curd recipe!
Yesterday we had a morning planned for a tea party! I took a basket that had a checked red and white tea towel laid in the bottom and over the sides. I tied a gingham ribbon on the handle and then filled the basket with some sweet dishes, tea cups, a bowl of fresh blueberries, coffeehouse scones, some with blueberries, homemade lemon curd, whipped fresh cream and specialty teas. Marian and I are so alike. Wish I had taken a pic. We like simple pretty things......I knew when I fixed the basket up it would make her smile. It did. She was so tiny when I walked in the door and saw her. I had seen her just a few weeks before, but not prepared for her weight loss this time. God please have mercy in this situation and may more with my follers! Thankful our bodies are not the real us!
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
I was prepared to pray scripture over her.......I could barely get through it. Sad is the only word for it, but in the midst we found joy! We laughed, we cried and we knew that we could trust our God with her outcome, but we are praying for a miracle! This is not the end of our stories......we have a day when the Lord will come and take us all to His Home as we have trusted Him to do.
Cancer is mean, yesterday I realized again just how mean it was. She and her sweet sister Rosa left in the afternoon to go to the Oklahoma Cancer Center......they could use prayer please. Rosa also.....they have lived together all their life....caring for foster children......adopting two girls.....and now caring for their aging Momma (Grandma Yoder). I asked Rosa how she was doing.....life seems to be crashing in on her. She said, "I am wanting to learn all that the Lord has for me to learn." Precious answer! They are teaching me much as I walk this with them.
Hope this isn't a downer post for you all. I just had to journal my thoughts.
Hugs to your day and may the Lord give you peace in whatever it is that you are walking.
We are on day 5 on weaning Denali from his Momma Juneau. It is a pitiful thing to watch for sure! He is doing so well now though. When we put Juneau in the round pen, that little stinker put his head through the holes and she would position herself so he could nurse. We had to change our plans!
