I want to share with you all our wonderful news. We just found out this morning that Jessica is pregnant. We are not sure how far along she is. She will be going to the doctor on Wednesday for her first appointment. God is SO good! His kindness toward His children always amazes me. Thank you Lord! I would so appreciate it if you all would be in prayer for her and this new life she carries.
We have sunshine today with wind gusts of about 50 mph. Temperature is cold. Actual temperature is 35 degrees. I’m not sure what the wind chill is but I know it is cold. I have one load of clothes on the line but I have to keep going out to pick them up off the ground. The wind keeps blowing them off the line. I think I’ll probably just go bring them in. I wanted to do some trimming today but I think I’ll have to postpone it until tomorrow. Hopefully it will be warmer then.
We had our first lesson today in our new study, NO OTHER GODS by Kelly Minter. It seems to be a good study. She asks a lot of questions that cause us to search ourselves for the answers. I think these are hard studies. I guess I’m just not very good at self evaluation.
Tonights menu will be ham biscuits, the leftover kale and potatoes. I made fresh rolls today for the ham however half of them have already been eaten. I love to cook things that get eaten quickly. It makes me fill happy inside. I also made a fifteen bean soup with ham for tomorrow. I like to make soup a day ahead when I can. I always think it taste better the next day.
Our pup broke his old collar the other day and Hubby decided to make him a new one out of some old leather he had here. We let the girls stamp his name on his new collar. He is very proud of it and I must say it definitely looks better than his old one did.
Today was ladies bible study day. Our study today was about Elizabeth. It was a really nice study. We only have 2 more lessons in this book. We have decided to do Kelly Minter’s “No Other Gods” next. I will show you all a picture of the study book soon.
Hubby is gone to a deacons meeting at church tonight and I plan on watching a movie. A blogger friend of mine had recently watched this movie, “The Lightkeepers”. I rented it from Netflix and got it in today.
These pictures were taken just as the sun was coming up. Isn’t it a beautiful color? We certainly get some beautiful sunrises and sunsets here on the farm. Today is ladies bible study day. We will be beginning the study on Ruth by Kelly Minter. It promises already to be a great study. So many things she has pointed out just in the first week that I had never thought of. I love studies like that. They make me think and help me apply bible lessons to everyday life.
This evening we will be going to the Pastor’s house to start our applebutter making. I am looking forward to it. I have never made applebutter outside before. I think, though, it will be a lot of work. This evening we will be eating sloppy joes, chips and cookies. Tomorrow will be pot luck. We need to be at his house by 8:00 a.m. We will need to leave here by 6:45 to get there on time. I hopefully will get lots of pictures to share.
I better get busy. It’s almost time for the ladies to get here. Enjoy your day and God bless.
Sam really loves his swing. He does not however like his car seat. He was sooooooo ready to be home Saturday after shopping. He wanted his swing and some sleep. Us girls got up early and went blueberry picking. We picked 2 gallon-1 for us and 1 for Jess. We came home just before the rain started. Good timing. It rained most of the day there.
Afterward, we all went out to eat at Golden Corral. Then we went to look around at Lifeway. I purchased a new bible study. It is Ruth by Kelly Minter. I think this will be our next Friday Ladies Study. It looks very interesting. I saw so many new studies that I want to do. We even picked out one for the girls to do for their bible class this coming year. It was a great day. We all had lots of fun.
We are getting some much needed rain today. Temperatures are cooler too. 74 degrees right now. I like that. Did you all notice my drying log on the right. My darling baby girl, Grace, did that for me. She told me she watched David put the others on. I was very impressed with her knowledge as I have no idea how to do any of that. Thanks Grace.
Church was very nice yesterday. Our pastor’s sermon was on what it takes to make a man. It was a very good sermon. Then we had communion, followed by a fellowship meal. LOTS o f good food. Then we had more good food last night with our Sunday Evening Study. All in all it was a really good day. I better get busy. Take care and God bless.
