Here I Am...Lord

Send me... 
I'll be your messenger...

Photos taken last fall...



Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 
“Whom shall I send? 
And who will go for us? ”

 And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Isaiah 6:8 NIV

Truth is...both myself, 
and my beloved hubby, Russ, (pictured above)
are waiting, 
day by day
and night by night, 
abiding in the Lord's desire.

Our life belongs to Him.

"Some people are humbly grateful,
and some people are grumbly hateful."
Pastor Adrian Rogers

Please Lord, give me the patience to be humbly grateful.

Until next time, dear friends.  God willing.

Focus on Him

It's true.

I don't fit in.  

But that's o.k., for my world is taken up with all that I love.

My unique home life, and an abundance of critters.

My best friend, 
hubby Russ, 
who had a birthday yesterday...
he's catching up to me...

And most of all, Jesus.
From whom all blessings flow...

My focus is on Him.

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, 
neither angels nor demons, 
neither the present nor the future, 
nor any powers, 
neither height nor depth, 
nor anything else in all creation, 
will be able to separate us from the love of God 
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8:38-39

It's quite a journey.  

Until next time, dear friends.  God willing.

P.S.  I'm officially off Facebook now, FYI.
I feel lighter already...more on that later...
(...and yes, I miss all my Facebook friends, but...we can connect in so many other ways...)

Caprine Joy

We love our new little "kid", Olive.

She's only a week old, but it seems like she has been with us forever.

Our bunnies know her.

And enjoy her antics.

And curiosity.  

Mama's been busy, watching her new adventurous little one.



Her world is a playground.

And we love watching her joyful nature.

"The Lord has done great things for us!  
We are glad!"

Psalm 126:3

Until next time, dear friends.  God willing.


Morning Breath (Sled Dog Style)

I love running a sled dog team in the coolness of the morning.

I love it when their breath merges with the early morning sun.  

"In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning 
I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation."

Psalm 5:3

I love my freedom. 

I love the Lord.

Until next time, dear friends.  God willing.

There's a New Kid in Town


Mama...Cocoa...gave birth.

On the last day of April, it happened.

And of course it happened when we were at a nearby town getting our monthly supplies.

What a treat to pull in our long drive and see her peeking out of her small barn/chicken coop, 
with a wobbly newborn by her side.

Her tiny perfect baby (yet unnamed) has a light brown body, 
and looks like she was dipped up past her belly in chocolate!  
Four dark brown legs, 
a dark brown stripe running down her back, 
and around the top of her head.  

She's the softest fur baby I've ever touched.  

Both are doing well.  
And today, with the sun peeking out, they took to "heading out" 
and enjoying some sunshine just outside the door, 
with Mama keeping the curious chickens at bay.  

Photo from last summer...

As I awaited the birth, 
watching Mama bag up and looking so ready to deliver, 
it reminded me of our Lord.

   I had no idea when she would actually be born, 
just as I don't know when Jesus will return.

It is just one more reminder of what a sovereign God we have...
and how good it feels to trust Him for all our needs.  

Thank you Abba, Father, for your goodness...each and every day.

Until next time dear friends, God willing.
