"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:3-5

About Me

Oregon, United States
I am a happy, Christian, wife and post-homeschooling mother. I have spent the last several years homeschooling and now I am "adjusting" to a new season of life as "empty nester". In 2010 we moved to be Host/Caretakers at a Bible Camp. We look at our ministry here as preparing the way for the gospel to be shared as well as encouraging believers in their daily walk. I am a farmgirl at heart and love the country, I love gardening and food preserving. I also, love tea parties!! I also have a Titus 2 heart and want to share with anyone willing to listen and learn. I love having friends over and teaching them how to make bread or put up pickles. And as we work, I love to encourage them to love their husbands and their children and to be Keepers at Home and all that implies and I love that you let me do that here!! Hope you enjoy visiting my farm and walking through a journey in life with me.......I hope at some point in time I can encourage you in your walk and in your home..........

Flower Gardens, Altars and Job Requirements.......

So, blogger does not seem to want to do pictures today... :( So, thought I would share some thoughts.....

A quote from an article years ago, "The Road to a Debt-Free, (Keeper at Home), Simple Life is Rarely Straight" (Parenthesis my added thought).... :)

"God uses all those (any) inconveniences to plant tender seeds of endurance when we are not even looking. And before you know it, tiny sprouts of perseverance and contentment begin to crop up where resistance and impatience used to thrive. You hardly notice it in the beginning, but one day there it is -- the sweet flower of long-suffering blooming right there in your very irritation. God has us here in the flower garden of patience, long-suffering and perseverance."

Just a couple more great quotes:

"Have you surrendered your life to the Lord or have you abandoned your heart on the altar? The Titus 2 woman must abandon her heart. Others may surrender, you may not stop with surrender, you only begin there." B. Boyce

"God did not author words such as 'I can't!' or 'I quit!'...to be used in context with a job requirement. You can and you will!" B. Boyce
(The "job requirement" here being anything
we must do at home).

Wow, deeply ponder some of these thoughts today....wow!!
