Fall Thyme!!!!!!

Hey all you sweet ladies!!!!!!!!

Just came in from doing the chores............gathered the eggs. I love the color of my eggs that my girlies lay for me each day and even on rest for them! It got way down to 27 degrees last night so I am going to start giving them warm water. It helps the girls  so they keep laying even when it gets cold outside. Really works. 

ABC news picture

Okay, this morning I had the CHRISTian station on in the bakery and was listening to a news cast.........have you heard about this? I am not kidding......I listened.......and then went in the storage room......and lost it! I was so touched by this story. 

I have been able to work along side my husband all of our married life...on the farm and now in the college kitchen......I am is he! We love doing things together! A Gift we believe from the Lord! Any way here is the story. They were a Gift to their children.....I hope they know that!

This story is just PRECIOUSNESS!


Hugs from my farm and God bless your day



  1. I seen this yesterday and it's truly amazing! When they said he died but they still felt a heartbeat, from his wife since they were holding hands, was priceless!

  2. I saw this yesterday too - what a lovely story. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. I saw this story yesterday. It is an AMAZING love story... what a legacy this couple left for their children. An inspiring story! Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  4. Yes, we saw that story. My news anchor cried.

  5. Wow, first time I have been able to comment in awhile!

    I love this amazing story and testimony of love. What a wonderful blessing they were to one another and family.

    (BTW - blogged a few gift ideas. More ideas to come. ;)

  6. Yes, I had heard about this story. So precious, you are right, Linda. I had been thanking my husband the other day that he had always been there no matter what we went through over the years so this song really touched my heart. I lost it too when I heard! Thank you for sharing this with us. Such a precious story of true love.

  7. What a sweet sweet story of two hearts joined together for so many years. What a great testimony to young couples just starting out! It isn't easy folks but the ride is well worth it! Love does prevail!
    Thanks for sharing!

  8. I also saw this enchanting story of love!
    Had never heard about the warm water! What A great tip! Thanks!

  9. I had been listening to the Christian radio about children being raised without fathers. It was heart breaking too. We live in such a throw away society. This was a true love story continuing in heaven with the Lord Himself. Very touching.The song was so appropriate although I know Steven Curtis Chapman lost a daughter in a terribly heartbreaking accident. God knows what He is doing doesn't He? Love and Blessings Anne


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It is so appreciated and it makes me feel like I am making a new friend.

God Bless your day!
