Its Harvest Time again……and each year it just reminds me…

Yep. Its harvest time again. The fields have gone from dark and dead to large parcels of combed earth....very much reminding me of how the Handy Hubby's hair looks in contrast to when he gets up vs when he leaves for work in an hour or so. Nice orderly combed rows where the combine has [...]

Are you my REAL mommy?

I knew it would happen one day. I guess in my heart I was just hoping it would happen when they were a little older and would be able to understand a little more when we explained it. The other day we stopped in at an old favorite restaurant, where the seven year old daughter [...]

Where is God when it IS more than I can handle?

First of all, let me say as a preface that this post is not directed at anyone in particular. SO many of your beautiful notes of encouragement and emails of concern and prayers made my day a couple days ago. But they also sparked something in my heart that I want to write to you about [...]

When the Going gets tough…Have faith.

So many have asked over on the Facebook page how my oldest daughter is doing because they know we are back in the game, starting to blog again, running our Young Living classes again, and just finally back at home. She is doing SO well now...it is a blessing to my heart. Seeing her up [...]

The Power of being Positively Prepared…

I have noticed a slight, but growing, fundamental shift in the last six months when it comes to being prepared for anything.
