North to Alaska

I’m an all or nothing kind of gal.  It takes me a while to make a decision, but once I do I tend to jump in with both feet … full steam ahead.  When I told hubby that we needed to take that big “trip” we had always talked about, I was ready to jump in with all fours....

Defending Your Faith

Proud grandparents we are, especially this past weekend as we joined family at our granddaughter’s confirmation.  I barely remember being that young, but do recall not wanting to learn about God/faith/Bible … I was too busy having (what I thought) was fun.  Looking at...

Preparing the Fields

When we moved to the farm in 2017, I knew enough about farming to fill a thimble.  Today I know enough to fill a measuring cup half full.  My hay knowledge shot way up this past week observing our first hay baling. For a long time I thought hay came pre-bundled in...

Adrift

I was taking a much-needed break from my non-hectic country schedule this past weekend and convinced myself with little pressure I needed some binge watching.  There was a wide selection of shows and movies to choose from when I happened on a little-known movie.  It...

History in the Making

Memorial Day is devoted to honor the men and women who have served to defend and protect this great country near and abroad.  Each one, living or passed, has sacrificed to allow you and me to enjoy the freedoms often taken for granted.  They each have a story to tell...

A Family Affair

They came from near and far to celebrate a wonderful member of the community.  In anticipation of a truly great event, family, friends, and neighbors started their travels early in the morning to arrive in time for the “big surprise.”  It wasn’t a birthday, holiday or...

To Mothers Everywhere

Mother’s Day is fast approaching … a time to honor mothers who are still with us, remember those who are not, and celebrate the mothers who are yet to be.  Living on a farm, I often observe life from a different perspective.  Let me share what happened recently. I was...

Does Prayer Work?

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. Created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman, the...

How Do You Respond?

Being pro-life, I am always interested in the state of our culture.  Do we celebrate life? … or are we a culture of death through abortion?  While statistically, it appears our culture is changing to embrace life, there seems to be that one person on every corner who...

When God Comes Knocking

  I have worked a long time … since I was 19 (ah, yes, to be young again).  I retired two times during my career.  The first time was in 2014.  I told my husband I had had enough of corporate life and wanted to retire while I was still young enough to remember...

Who Do You Trust?

Let’s face it.  The longer a person lives, the more decisions must be faced.  Where do I go to school?  What should I be when I grow up?  Who do I marry?  Should I change jobs?  Where should I live?  Who should I vote for?  Is my doctor the best?  Where should I...

Three Days

I attended what some would call a women’s retreat this past weekend.  Oh, I had doubts before going – I had done this before … sign up, show up, then wanting to leave after three hours.  I wasn’t expecting the impact three days could have on me.  It turned out to be...
