Praise the Lord whom all blessings flow

– <![CDATA[ par

Hope everyone is having a good day in the Lord. Yesterday we worked on the barn. Boy did Ipay for it later. I could hardly lift my arms up and down when we were through. We totally cleaned out all the shavings and hay and swept and bleached the floor, then replaced the floor with new shavings. It looks so nice again. That will have to be done two times a year. Like I said before, if it wasnt for Dakota I dont know how Id ever do anything. I finally had to come in and lay down and take some Ibuprophen, sometimes it helps sometimes it doesnt. The boys played all day. Poor Dallas was so exhausted last night and fell asleep in the recliner. David said we had a racoon under our atv trailer eating corn the other morning when he left to go to work. I knew there had been one somewhere cause theres little teeth marks in my sweet potatoes I have in a box under the house. Yesterday evening we went to pick up something at MIL’s house and what do we find instead? Another dead hen in my coop. Ok, something has to give. I think we finally figured it out. On the water barrell by the coop were little paw prints of a coon or opossum. They got into the coop from a little opening up top. So me and Dakota took some scrap chicken wire and crinkled it up and stuffed in the holes, and moved the barrell to the other side away from the fence. Maybe that held them off. It had better or I want have any left.  I guess Ill find out later when we go check on them again. We missed our hay ride we were having at a church members house because we were doing all that.


This is the time of year when everyone is thinking about Thanksgiving, well those of us who really appreciate this holiday instead of skipping it and going right on the Christmas. Everyone should be thinking about there blessings from the storehouse from above. Our pastor preached a wonderful sermon this morning. He asked the question How can we really say Thank You to God for his blessings and Mercy? The answer he gave was in Matthew on the parable of the talents. The two took what they had and increased it when the one took his and hid it. We should take what he gives us and be the best stewards we can be and take care of it for his glory and honor. Use what we have for his glory, dont keep it to ourselves. Since I got married 16 yrs ago and had children, I live my life now trying to take the blessings hes given me( Husband and two wonderful boys) and take care of them to the best of my ability. Now I fail alot in this area. sometimes I put all my energy in my kids that my husband gets left out sometimes. Ive got to learn to spread myself out to minister to "all". My prayer life has slipped a little. God knows Im not perfect, but I sure want him to help me. Thank good ness for his mercy when he sees Im trying. I want everything I do and try to teach my kids to glorify him. I want my kids to put him first in their lives. I pray that my husbands walk would be closer. Its not as close as it could be, he could be better, but thats between him and the Lord. I am to stand in the Gap and pray and lift him up to the Lord. He does love the Lord, he just shows it in his own way. He thinks "all" the teaching should be my responsibility, how wrong he is. He has tiny feet following him too. My friends, help me pray in this area in my life. Sometimes I get weary praying and not getting an answer. But I know that all things work together for them that love the Lord and he will answer in his time. I was looking a the bookmark that the funeral home gave to the family when my grandmother passed away and in reading it, there was a sentence that said She was a Homemaker. How my heart leaped, cause Ive always wanted to fill her shoes. and I feel as though I am. I too am a homemaker and I only hope to be as good as she was.  I take "everyday" of the year and have Thanksgiving because I am so thankful of all my blessings which I am so underserving of. He loved me enough to take my punishment for sin and turn around and bless me like he has. How can I not take what hes given me and take care of it? He has been so good to me and my family. I like Jabez’s prayer. Lord bless me and bless me alot. And the Lord has. It doesnt always have to be material things, its just the simple things, and  I am contented. I can just be the thought and comfort of knowing he keeps me and my family safe. Or the food on our table. Praise the Lord for whom all blessings flow.


I hope everyone takes the time to think about all they have been entrusted with and make a commitment to take care of it. Look at the faces of your children, and yours spouses face and thank the Lord.


Its time to get ready to go back to church where I can thank him somemore.

About 4dfarms

I am a wife to an amazingly dedicated, devoted, and loyal husband whom God sent to me. I am a mother to two wonderful boys to whom I'd give my life for. Around here we have homeschooled, we farm, garden, hunt, fish and anything else we want to do. Although I do have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Sometimes its hard for me to keep up. If it was not for my husband and two boys, I could not do some of what I do. They really do help me alot. We work together as a team in my home. We try our best to train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Yea, they slip sometimes and correction has to be made. Thats life. I want so badly to be just like the Proverbs 31 woman. My grandmother did an awesome job of it and Id like to fill her shoes.
