Yoohoo, hi there,
It’s me, Karmen the long lost author of the blog…no I haven’t fallen off the map or forgotten the address to this blog…I’ve been wrestling this week…and before you go to a bad place with that let me clarify -a spiritual match.. Tug-o-war within my soul .. Much of “no you can’t” and “YES YOU CAN” kinda stuff…you know.? Surely you’ve been there.? and it’s not over…will you pray for me? many of you who read here are family, others are friends of ole and some are new found forever- friends…
I need you.
Please join me in praying through the next “what’s next” …For several months I have felt like I have been trapped in the house of mirrors ..The fun house at the fair except it’s not fun…hitting my head at each turn..the way becoming clear and then distorted .. FINALLY just this week a couple of things began to unfold and appear more clear…The Bible says
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct[a] your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
So that’s what I’m doing..
Meanwhile in other news 3 sure signs that SPRING in on the way…WOOOHOOO…
On the farm we’ve had 3 baby lambs born this week and they are a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e
Twins born yesterday. Thankfully the rascals missed the delivery..because after they saw the piglets “hatch” there were LOTS of questions-(note to self: must.write.about that good talk SOON)…The lamb’s “hatching” was a bit more complicated- the cowboy had to pull one ..she had the other on her own. All are well this morning.
The votes are still being counted- but these black and white lambs may be cuter than the last litter of piglets..
In the garden we’ve got carrots, some lettuce and broccoli in the ground..
Hoping to plant potatoes and onions this weekend..lil farmer “Jack” and I LOVE this time of year…
Trees and bushes all around the farm beginning to show signs of spring PRAISE YE THE LORD HALLELUJAH..the cloudy days were beginning to mess with my head…
Mommas of boys LOVE THE SUN…we need sun ..because boys NEED outside.. and everybody said, “AMEN?!”
In town, on the storefront~ the cowboy says everybody’s caught spring fever ..fertilizer, seeds and vegetable plants are flying out the door of Fort Payne Feed & Garden.. THANK YOU for your patronage. We are GRATEFUL to have survived our first year of retail. We’re excited to have a bit more of a clue as to what to do & look forward to year two of gardening with you..
Thanks for reading, for your friendship and mostly for your your prayers…Y’all are a part of this journey…
