Small Business Saturday

A Time For Every Season
Patches the calf goes to slaughter today. The goats are drying off. Just two more goats need to get bred. Life around here is slowing down to a moderate pace and so begins my time of leisurely pursuits.   I love the fall season. Not just for it's colors and...

Hannah's Birthday!
Can't believe my Hannah is 17! As is our family tradition, for the 17th birthday, we buy a fancy dress and go out for a fancy dinner of their choosing. It has to be something new and can't be a chain restaurant. Hannah wanted to try sushi, so we picked a Ja...

Pastor Jones and Jake sang that song this past Sunday. I too, thought of everything that we have been through over the last few years. God truly has held us in His hand, even when we felt like He had let go of us. I know there will be more trials to come. Life is just like that. But I rejoice in knowing that my heavenly Father cares for me more than I can imagine.

The New Normal
In the Bible, Numbers 32:23 says, "But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out". In essence, even if you think no one will know, the Lord knows, and what you did will eventually be revealed. Rach...
