It is our 11th Building Our Homes Together With Jesus........can you believe it?
Talk about precious........thank you for all the kindness you showed my sweet man and myself. We hardly had time to think about our anniversary..........we worked so hard at the school, trying to get all the baking done. My sweet man is now the grill chef. It was fun to hear all the kids and kitchen talk about what a "mean omelet" he made. He made me one........it was wonderful. He is getting real good and they all love the hamburgers at lunch........he doesn't burn them like the guy before! Our boss is really happy that he is catching on so well. I can boost a little right? I think it is the grills that he got over the years for Father's Day......never did we know that it was going to be a career for him some day. Heeheee!
Look at what we canned today. The peaches we have been getting have been wonderful! A sweet lady in the Beachy community got together all these ladies to value order. Worked out great for all the families. The peaches we got are called O'Henry. Never heard of that kind before, but they have been very good. This weekend I will make jam and jelly. Can't wait. I got 13 quarts done this afternoon. Then our girls were acting all funny like..........knew they were up to something. They made us leave, because they had a surprise.
They walked us into a beautiful set table. The lace tablecloth was covering the table.........they had picked the three flowers from the farm for the decorations. Tressa said she looked all over.......nothing grew to speak of. Notice the sweet hankie under their Daddy's plate and the nummy peach, strawberry drink.
My plate had the pink hankie. The table was set beautifully!
For dessert we were served the most nummy Peach Pie. They let us eat our dinner alone.......what a precious act of kindness and love. One we will not ever forget.
As I think tonight about Building Our Homes Together..........with Jesus, I am reminded that it is about families.......working through the hard and good times to make a HOME. Striving for our Home to look like what Jesus wants it to look like. It is different for each family. Failing at times, but never giving up. Forgiveness.......when needed. I am so grateful for my children and my precious sweet man and a Heavenly Father that never changes. Lately He is using us outside our Home.......trusting Him on this journey. Tonight the girls came home from visiting some of the girls at the college they became close with last year. One newly wed and some single girls.......they kept telling the girls they wanted to come to the farm. Precious.........our family is getting bigger...."Father continue to do with us as you see fit." Help us to keep our eyes the YOU!
Unless the LORD builds the House
they labor in vain who build it........
Psalm 127: 1
He is our foundation........Thank you sweet ladies for coming and making our anniversary so special. Your comments were a blessings to us!
