"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..........

A Rather Quiet Day........

Just a peek......

OK, I am back......I made it through the week, but today will
be a very "hardly do anything at all day"!!!!
The Tea went well. I ended up having 27. I am always happy
that Iam back in the kitchen and that the ladies have NO
idea what is going on back there, so many things were going
wrong, but on their sideit remained calm and enjoyable.
Praise God for that!!

When I do teas at the Hall, I bring most of the dishes home
dirty :( so have to spend the next couple of days cleaning
up at home. We werehome about 10:30 or 11:00 last night,
and sat up even later, AND I was up until 1 a.m. two
nights before Tea........so I for one
am very tired today, and doing Tea just does
me in for a couple days anyway. I am not
as young as I once was. :(
For today, I am still relaxing with my cup of coffee
and later this afternoon a friend will pick me up and
we are going to Lark Gardens new store Grand Opening.
It is a Lavender farm!! In the summer they
do Tea outside and in the winter you can arrange a
Tea inside and they have had their store inside their
home. They just built a new store!! The actually
sell Lavender Jelly!?!?! I must
experiment with that some day. :)
I am anxious to see this place....this is sooooo much
what I want to do!! Have a store and Tea
at home on my own property!! Maybe
some day........I will keep dreaming!!
I must go......thank you for all your wonderful,
encouraging comments lately.....
see you soon with wonderful pictures of Tea!!

Teas, well done, certainly do require a lot of work.
