Dear precious women all over the world.........you are my gifts.....and I am a blessed lady! This last year has been truly the most precious year as far as my blog. I never knew that when I started it, that the Lord had a plan and you would all be a part of it. That the God of the Universe would let me know all of you who let me know that you are there! When I first started writing, I had know idea it could be so fun. You have encouraged me just when I needed it. You would be Jesus' voice to encourage me to keep running the race........you gave me giggles when I just wanted to cry......(having to wear the silly hat at work) and pictures in my mind of what you might look like! Smile! Today we celebrate the best gift of all......... Jesus........he came as a babe........and became the Savior of the world! I trust you know Him as that.......here is my prayer for you on this CHRISTmas Day.
Father in Heaven, you know how much each and every precious lady means to me........the ones that You have brought to my blog for one reason.........so that they were loved.....by YOU through me! From the beginning you have been my purpose for writing and telling my story about life on a farm....... Your golden thread sewn delicately into the tapestry of my life...... so that it would be a reminder for those who come after me.......my journal. I thank you for each lady here that represents a gift from You........with her own thread represented and uniquely woven into my life. Each one has not been taken for granite Father.......each one has become very special and I thank you for them. They are precious women as you know. I ask for "the Lord to bless and keep you; the Lord make His Face shine upon you and be gracious to you; that the Lord turn His face to you and give you Peace." Numbers 6: 24-27.
May you and yours have a BLESSED CHRISTmas!!!!!!!
from Prairie Flower Farm.........
nestled by a creek, a little ways from our farm..........with brand new baby CHRISTmas chicks (as some of you have called), a family who loves the Lord Jesus with all their hearts sending you all big hugs! Enjoy your day........and again......if you are alone........or just lonely.......email me I have time.
I think V looks like a Stubbie (far left) ! God does things like that!
For those who gave to bring our once orphan boy home to our family.........here he is with "his precious family". He had so much fun last night as he opened his presents with his cousins and "family".......boy that sounds good. Our family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts for the prayers and gifts you gave so it was possible to bring him to America. He is doing well with his English!!!!!!! Please keep them in your prayers.
I am off to my farm kitchen to do some serious baking!!!!!!! Family will be coming tonight for dinner!!! Can't wait........memories will be made!
Hugs to you!!!!
P.S. Thank you for all the cards........teas....... and gifts........you were so sweet to think of me!
