She Watches Over Her HOUSE...

Dear sweet ladies........

it is Saturday......and I am HOME and what a sweet day I am having! It will be a busy day getting things in order! Now that our family is out serving the Lord at the time at Home seems so big at times. I want to do the things that I love to do, but time is limited..The girls and I stay busy doing the best that we can.........anyway this morning I was thinking as I was working and cleaning, of the verse "she watches over the ways of her household"........Proverbs 31:27.........some days are better than others.........right......but it doesn't mean I can't keep trying. Because I can get discouraged! Not often, but it does happen........ever happen to you? It is an unending job when you live in a very old farm house and the wind is blowing......need I say more? SMILE! I am not complaining, it's just life. It is Home....... a gift........given! 

I had laundry hanging on the line and when I walked by it the verse came to my mind! I remember when I had little ones that needed so much care......and the house work didn't get done, but that was okay......I was taking care of my household!!!!!! Now I have the memories of those precious moments.....but I thought...... now that I am outside the Home some of the day......making a living along side my sweet man and daughters to help support the farm.........I can find pleasure and then offer what I do get done as an offering to the Lord. He knows my days.......and He understands my HEART. I will be content in whatever situation...........and so sweet ladies how are you doing today? If you need prayer please email me (top right hand corner).......I have time as I work.

If you have never left a comment, please do...... 
I would love to meet you!  

Welcome all the New have been soooooo me!

Hugs to your day........from my I


and finding the JOY........HE has for me,



  1. What a blessing it is to read your blog daily! I feel so "at home" being able to share your stories. I read Proverbs 31: 10-31 as part of my devotion every day. I too am struggling this year with being out of the household working as a Bible teacher three days a week. So, I understand the time constraints of working and keeping up with the household. But each day is still a blessing:) Hope you enjoy you weekend! and thanks for sharing your days with all of us!

  2. Linda,

    I love your red quilt and linens. That is so YOU! ;)

    I wish I had an outdoor clothesline. Clothes/linens smell so good after they have dried outdoors.

    Guess what? You get another day at HOME tomorrow :D Hope it is awesome!

    Love ya,


  3. Hi Linda! I am glad you are home where you are so happy! I Like to be at home too! I love doing laundry so I feel happy when I do it! In fact, I need to put another load in the washer and check my dryer items! Hugs Anne

  4. Hi Linda,
    I love the photo's with your quilts in them, they are beautiful works of art.
    I was a few days behind on your blog and was reading through, I had to smile when I read about you giving your chickens warm water. I can't imagine what it is like to live in a really cold place.
    Proverbs 31 is so inspiring, and encourages me to do my best at work, especially the part where she considers a field and buys it, out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
    Have a lovely week,
    God bless,

  5. Hi Linda! I borrowed your photo and verse today. The Lord has been putting my home work on my heart more and more. I am getting crazy at my job so he is directing me to calm my spirit. Thank you and I hope you ave a moment to stop by. Love and Hugs Anne
