Sunday Ride

Urgent prayer request....I received a email this morning.......please pray for this young lady and mother of 2 had a major stroke.......I do not know her, but said I would put her up so we could pray and follow. Thank you ladies. The blog is The Simple Wife

Hello sweet ladies,

Sunday was a really nice day. We went to church with our youngest son and his family. I was able to sit in the middle of two of my precious granddaughters. I call that "wonderful." I needed some grandchildren today! Missing Vitaliy and realizing he is really gone. Very far away! But I have hope.........and that is a wonderful thing also. The message was precious to my soul. It was what my heart needed.......course going to church does that anyway doesn't it?

Later in the day our daughter wanted to go horse riding. I took a few pictures of her horse Kansas. She is a mustang. The sweetest horse you can imagine! Except today Kansas decided to........

leave Tay in the dust or rather snow. Taylor went to get something out of the car. Kansas decided to go back home. You should have seen her gallop. She was enjoying her run and she knew exactly what she was doing. Naughty girl!!!!!! She had to be tied to her post for a time. She will learn that running away is not a good thing.

My girlies are laying...........11 today. With the snow they are giving not so clean eggs. Vitaliy and I put in brand new straw in their boxes..........didn't help. Snow is starting to melt!

I love how our Mr. Rooster went into the place I made up for the kitties to sleep in. To much snow for the cats..........Mr. Rooster thinks it is just fine!

Well......... off to work on Monday.............doing a catering, so have to make some focaccia bread. Haven't had to make it for awhile............I will enjoy making it. It tastes so nummy!

Are you baking anything good today..........tell us and we will come and see!

Hugs and thank you everyone that wrote to encourage us. It was so precious of you and the prayers were so appreciated. Leave me a note....... if you need prayer. I would love to do so for YOU!

God Bless You!



  1. Its cold and raining here on our little place this morning. Our puppy, Sarge can't get our old labrador lady, Cinnamon to play with him. Her legs bother her when it rains and she gets grumpy with the eager boy. He has decided to bark at her from a safe distance. Too cute!

    I haven't decided what to make today. Homemade vegetable soup sounds good, so does chili... maybe just some white peas, potatoes, and hamburger steaks with gravy. I think those are all doable in the crocks this morning while I sew up some more clothespin bags.

    Sorry you are missing Vitality. God heals. By reading your posts, I'm sure you know this. Take joy in knowing you have taught him well. Take joy in knowing he will teach others what he has learned from you.

    May God bring you comfort today, and assurance that all is well.

  2. Hi Loretta.........we need rain so bad! Sounds like your puppy is adorable and Cinnamon is not in the mood.

    Mmmmm soup sounds good! WE have so much at work we can eat for free every day. The lunch is our main meal and we don't eat much at night. Do not want to put on the weight! Ooo......clothes pin bags. How fun. I love to sew. In fact I am working on orders. It is my therapy!
    Do miss our Vitaliy.....we will wait and see what our kids can do. Pray with please!
    Hugs, Linda

  3. Hello Loretta! Making bread sound so good....well coming home to baking bread sound better....wish I could stop by!

  4. Such a sweet post. The bread sounds delicious. Sorry to hear about the young mother at "the simple wife". She will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love the rooster photo - he knows where the good resting spots are!

  5. Debbie.......come on over........and we could stitch the time away. I love stitchin.......take it with me everywhere! Thanks for stopping by.

    Hello Staci.......isn't that story of Joanne the saddest.......I found myself through out the day praying. Can't imagine their family and the pain they are going through. I have so many roosters.......they are beautiful but I need to find new homes. Love your pic's of your chickens.......they are so fun to watch aren't they?

    Hugs, Linda

  6. Oh Linda...I love these photos of your daughter on her horse. (just wish...wish...wish there was a time when I use to love to ride...) So I still really appreciate horses and their riders:)

    I found a lovely Proverb that made me think of Vitaily. "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

    I just know what little time you have spent with him and shown him the Word, he shall remember it always... Bless you all...

    Hope things are going well and glad those chickens are laying so well!!!!

    xoxo Gert

  7. Fresh eggs again, that's a good sign! :)

  8. Hi Gert.....thank you for the encouragement......precious verse. He is such a sweetie. Yes it is wonderful to know the time spent in the word never ever returns void~
