"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..........

The Silent Blogger.....


Well, I am very sorry to
have been so silent!!



Life has just being going
and going at a very steady
and sometimes very fast pace.



But all that is behind me
now and I will get back to
being a good blogger
beginning Monday. I promise!!



For now a quick note for today,
in the next couple of days
I will share my pictures
from the Birthday Tea
we just had on the front porch
and then I am off for a
relaxing weekend at camp! :)



As I was reading
Proverbs 15 today,
I was taken in by verse 30.



My Living Bible reads:
"Pleasant sights and
good reports give
happiness and health."

I read the living Bible in the
morning as I am not always wide
awake and it is easy to
understand at that point
in my day. :) But once in awhile,
if a verse really stands out
to me and I really like it,
I will check it with another
translation to be sure I
have the real/full meaning.



My King James reads:
"The light of the eyes
rejoiceth the heart; and
a good report makes
the bones fat."



Well, the first does not
exactly mean the same as
"light of the eyes". I
looked up "light" in
the Strong's that is in
the back of this
Bible and the Hebrew
there means "brightness"
or "cheerfulness".
I also looked
up "fat". In the Hebrew
it means "to satisfy".



I LOVE that!!

That is telling me that
my brightness and
cheerfulness
affects my heart right
down to my bones!!

AND

That same bright cheerfulness
shining through
my eyes
can be satisfying
to other people!!



So, what a good word to
take to camp with me
this weekend
(and, well, every day:)



Be happy, be cheerful,
it is good for our health
and those around us!!

Hope you are enjoying your Summer Days!!

Be back soon with some pics....
