As you know my Tressy left last Saturday for the Ukraine and she is having soooooo much fun. I am so glad she can be with her brother and sister in love during this very precious time. Another big meeting will be this Thursday. I will keep you posted on the time and all, but they would appreciating prayer, please. Today they went on a bus for 5 1/2 hours and then in a taxi for another 1 to their destination. The bus was very very hot. They would not allow you to pull down the windows. From what I understand Josh and Tressa had a lady (they did not know) sitting between them. Close fellowship I would call that!
We have been able to skype with Tress everyday. I am sure you can only imagine how precious that is for this Momma! They have been able to go sight seeing. They went to the St. Sophia's Cathedral. She has always loved architecture and has studied a lot of it during her leisure. She said it was beautiful. They were able to climb almost to the top. She took this picture from the window. Thought you would enjoy seeing it.
We got rain last Saturday while we were gone to take Tress to the airport. We got 1/2" and we were so grateful! The flowers that I kept alive are growing beautifully and the tomatoes are taking off!
Hope they don't freeze.I was out with a grandchild in one of the fields checking out the soybeans. They have not done well, but we did find some that had some seeds growing. Hope we get a little something for all the work that was done. It has been so hard for farmers this year. If it wasn't drought it was hail. Hard times. We are thankful we have a job that we are making a living. So many are without. Things are changing in this world.......fast. We understand with all the crops that have not made it that we are going to be in a different time food wise. We eat at work and don't eat much in the evening. Our food bill is minimal and we can't imagine if we had to pay the prices out there.
This picture makes me thankful. That anything is out there is amazing. God is so good! I see His provisions. It won't be as much as it would have been had it rained, but I still see His faithfulness. Thanking Him always!
My rooster and his girls were let loose to run the farm. They got into my rhubarb that was just holding on. Naughty!
I haven't mentioned, but people say that when there is an adoption that you notice the battle a little more during that time. We can identify. On Sunday night we were almost in a very bad wreck. We were pulling out onto a main highway and my sweet man just set the cruise. We were going 65 and all of a sudden a deer jumped out. She went back and forth. We ended up swerving and it really got bad with the car. We went into the left ditch. Thought it was going to tip on us or worse roll. My sweet man did a fantastic job driving and the car was not hurt at all. Just the emblem came off. We were so thankful. Praised God big time. I didn't breathe the whole time! Again this morning as my man was praying as we drove in for protection. TWO more deer were on the side and he stopped! Thank you to those who have been praying......we so appreciate it. I am praying for you also!
I am sorry, but I do not know how to do the "linky", so we will not be having Building Our Homes Together until Tressa gets back. I AM SO SORRY! Please hang in there with me. I just knew I couldn't do it right and would mess up.
Let me know how you are all doing if you like! Thank you so for all your comments and emails. You are such a blessing!
Hugs from my farm,
