::right now::

thankful...my oldest son Philip and Essie( his bride) got to come visit and celebrate their 19th and 20th birthday's with us on Tuesday.
it was ...a very short but really good visit.
that is ...why I was away.
planning and re-planning.... what needs to get done with the harvest , lessons ( for our little homeschool) and what needs to get done for the craft fair in November.
trying...to remember to breathe.
taking...one day at a time and trying savor it and not wish it away.
honestly... I am feeling a bit over whelmed.
feeling... the need to make sure I have my quiet times with the Lord and get regrounded.
reminded...by a good friend keep the Bible open and read here and there when ever I can.
mediating... on the Lord's holiness and goodness.
thankful... for all the blessings from Him.
wondering... where the rechargeable batteries are so I can post pictures of our plum preserving.
hoping ...to be able to get around blogshere a bit better soon.

  2. You are in the right place... keeping your eyes fixed on Jesus. So glad you got to see them!

  3. I will be praying for you to feel at peace in this season :)

    May you enjoy a wonderful weekend!

  4. So glad they came to visit....I know that was just such a precious time. Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. I hope all calms down soon. I know that this is a very busy season for you.

  6. So glad you had a nice visit with them! Praying that you keep your eyes upon Jesus, and that the Lover of your soul brings you the peace that you need!

  7. Good to hear from you, Mary! Nice to know some of what is occupying your time!

  8. Sounds like you have much on your mind, Dear Friend. I pray that the Lord will ease some of your stresses.

    Take care!

  9. Busy lady - I like that you are remembering to breathe - it really helps :) May the Lord overwhelm you with His goodness and Holiness x

  10. Mary it's lovely that you got a nice visit from your son and his wife for their birthdays :-)
    Praying that you will not be over-stressed by the busy-ness of the next month's work.
    Keeping the Word open and in plain sight is a great idea!
    And yes - remember to breathe!
    Turning blue doesn't suit you ;D
    much love as always..Trish

  11. You had me at the first one. I'm so glad you had a nice visit with them!

    And I agree with your friend about the ever open Bible.

  12. Sounds like a good list. Glad you got to see your son and DIL for their birthdays, how fun.

    I just sent you an email about T-Tapp, I did start it today (Saturday) and explained more about it in my email. :)

  13. Planning and replanning...

    I sooo get this. I spent the end of last week doing the same exact thing and feel much better about the busyness of the next couple of months.

    Be sure to take time to be still, my friend! The Word is a soothing balm in these busy, busy days.

    Blessings, ~Lisa
