I won something!!!

"Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win." I Cor. 10:12

This treasure arrived at my home several weeks ago - compliments of Nature Girl. She held a drawing and I was a winner!! Note cards with envelopes, stickers, and a pencil, too (it was already in use by the time this photo was taken). Thank you, Nature Girl. Sorry it took me so long to extend my thanks. Hope you're enjoying your time in Florida. I am certainly enjoying your photos!

Revealing one mystery

"He reveals mysteries from the darkness, and brings the deep darkness into light." Job 12:22

Thanks to all my blogger friends, I have come to the conclusion that revealing my true identity is not such a bad thing. However, as you can tell, I'm taking baby steps (ha, ha).

This is one of my favorite baby pictures. At the time, we lived in a small town (200 max), but a train came through every day. In fact, it ran right by our house and I remember waving at the man in the caboose! He would always wave back, too. You can see the grain elevator in the background.

My family has asked me to post pictures of Hubby and myself. This is my first small step. Eventually, I would like to add photos of the two of us (and maybe even our names); however, the whole blog thing is still a bit overwhelming to me. It's such a world-wide thing - you know?

Another reason I decided to change the photo on my profile is because, in reality, this blog is not ours, but mine. I'm the one to post; I'm the one the check comments; I'm the one to do everything. And that's perfectly fine; I love doing it. I've just decided to make it a bit more personal to my taste. Hubby really doesn't care what photo I show.

Hope you enjoy the new photo as you'll being seeing it every time I leave a comment on your blog from now on! Any encouragement you can offer as far as posting personal family photos would be helpful. Thanks!

Dripping with dew

"The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens. By His knowledge the deeps were broken up, and the skies drip with dew." Proverbs 3:19-20
These little flowers poked their heads up several weeks ago which means that spring is just around the corner!! There is a lot of moisture in the air, as you can see on the flowers. In fact, this picture was taken just after noon.

Being from an area of the US where there a four very distinct seasons, having flowers in February is a new experience. I have not investigated this flower, yet, so I'm not sure what it's called. When I got close enough to take this picture, I realized it's in full bloom with its head bowed. Even the flowers praise Him continually!

Watch for more homesteading posts. Rumor has it that Hubby is going to start cutting down trees along our west property line to make room for gardens and a greenhouse. Changes are in the works!!

Snow. No, ice. Both?

"From the breath of God ice is made, and the expanse of the waters is frozen." Job 37:10
Yesterday morning, Hubby and I witnessed something falling from the sky. At first, we assumed it was snow. But, after closer inspection, this is what we saw. It was little pellets of ice. Interesting, huh? Even though the sun peeked out for awhile, the temperature never did get high enough to melt it all away. We still have little patches of this in the yard.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Thanks to all my blogger friends for bearing with me as I continue to increase my business.
