Gorgeous day here on the farm! sounds of mowers, kids in pool and animals makes me happy!! Loving this weather!!

While the guys are outta town Terry is here in grossed in managerial paper work! Ha! He has kinda taken on a new role. Doing bids, paper work, and all that fun stuff! Hoping to get more bids out and more work because of this new format!

This is Joshua's flower in his little area where he tends roses and many other flowers! He was soooo excited this morning to see it had opened up! It's remarkable to see all the tiny details of all the variety of flowers! Our amazing God!i planted something's around the porch area, we will see how it goes with all the outside dogs! Farms and dogs and flower beds don't work too well!

We got pretty toasty red yesterday so I told them to wear a tshirt today! Ha! They love the water! Mercy is the cannon ball queen!

Hope you have a great Tuesday!!

Good morning everyone!!! Monday.....ugh!!! Tons of laundry!!! But I'm tackling it! Hosie made scrumptious muffins for the kidZ, I had my eggs and cherries and coffee and green tea so we are off to a We are swimming swimming this week as it spouse to be upper 90's all week!!! Yay! Love it!! Full summer mode now!

Bethany went to a goat show in Kansas this past weekend and did well! Glad for that!

Farmers market this past weekend was a success. Mercy, Josiah and I did it all by ourselves and made it! Ha! Everyone loves the sugar snap peas! Sold out!! Hosie and I made 54 GIANT/JUMBO muffins and only came home with 8, so yes we did good too!!!!! At this point any extra cash flow is a huge blessing!

Andrew and Micah mowed the heck outta the yard this past weekend and it looks super fantastic around here! We just have a push mower and it takes a long time but they did it!!! All the rain has made the lawn/grass so lush!! I absolutely love the sound of a mower and fresh cut grass! Reminds me of when I was little!

Josiah purchased a remote control truck with his own money he has saved up and he is running it all over the house! Between remote helicopters and remote vehicles, it's a dangerous journey to walk through the house!!!

Mercy is a tan little toot! But she has eczema and has had it since birth and the water is making her skin so dry. I try lotion but really I read somewhere that you have to work from the inside out like with fish oil and any oil capsule and that won't work with her taking pills!

Hope you have a great Monday!!!

a planned gift

Say for instance in 10 years you will meet a person and they will become your best friend. You don't even know this will happen. You don't know who it is. Your new best friend of down the road will of course have a birthday and when you meet this person in 10 years you will want to give him/her a gift. Would you start searching diligently NOW for that gift? Will you go out today and spend hours shopping and be consumed with finding the perfect gift? Of course we wouldn't do all that. BUT there is ONE that has done exact that for you!

You see, Jesus did that. I Peter 1:10, of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you. That grace that "should" come unto you." Along time before "our" time, Jesus agreed with his father in heaven to carry out grace upon the earth through death on a cross, and make a "gift of grace" towards all those sinners that would live in the future, not born, not existing on the earth, but to be redeemed with the precious blood of Christ as a lamb without blemish and with our spot, who verily was forordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in the last times for YOU! He planned and bought you a grace gift way in advance! Praise God for his kindness to think of me/us along time ago. Happy Birthday to us from HIM. What a beautiful gift he prepared for us far in advance!

Happy Monday!!
