"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
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..........
"What do you do? You're just a housewife and slave, aren't you?
A nursemaid to a bunch of kids?" ~ "NO. I have a
fantastic job, a terrific career! I am a curator in a
museum ~ a museum of memories!!"
~Edith Schaeffer, What is Family. (Very good book by the way:)
That is what I have been up to....a very, very busy
week creating memories!!
Even though my children are all grown, it is fun to still make memories. I have been sewing up a storm!! Making a couple lap quilts, PJ pants and I am about done. :) We basically have no money this year for gifts...so it has been such a BLESSING to see God provide just what I needed out in my "stash" of fabric. God is so Good and I feel richly Blessed! I will show you some pictures of what I have done after Christmas, just in case anyone "peeks" at this blog before tonight. :) Our children are all here tonight for a very healthy fish dinner....mmmm, can't wait!!..... and gifts and tomorrow we go to my hubbies Uncle's house for Christmas dinner. We were just going to hang out here at home and not do a big dinner Christmas day, but with the snow and the storms, his aunt and uncle will be alone since they cannot get anywhere and their family cannot get to them. :( So, we are happy to spend the day with them, they are the only "aged" family we have left that are like my children's grandparents, we have many happy memories with them.
Hope and pray for you all today.....Peace to you as you
