quiet moments......

it has been recovery time ...... surgery was almost a week and a half ago ........ first time i have had a surgery ...... so this has been a humbling ....... let others do for you kind of time in my life ........ thanks heavens it was an outpatient, but more of a surgery than expected ......................... i have been recovering well and hope to be back to normal soon (whatever that is ) .................. i of course am behind AGAIN for our next open house tour ................... but ................. mr. prairie blue has forbidden me to stress and as he says "get jacked out of shape" ................... so i am trying to keep calm ...... working on some mustard seed charm bracelets while building my strength and stamina for stand up, moving around type of things ....... isn't that kind of ironic, mustard seed .... the sign of "Faith"  .... hmmmm maybe i need to listen !
thank you for all of your prayers & lifting me up .......................... i am blessed !

it could be worse.......

just wanted to catch my friends up, that have been praying for me ............. i will be having outpatient surgery on Oct. 6th ............ Dr. says 99.9% sure it isn't cancer ................. but you know we are all human ..... all worry a bit ....... should be two procedures .... "same visit, same nap" the Dr. says ....... just ready to have it all behind me .......................... but so grateful i can put my trust in someone higher than i ................ He has this one ..... not me ....... i am human ....... but will trust !
......................................................... i am blessed !

sitting in a shadow.....

you know ...... sometimes we have shadows in our life ..... sometimes they are there for only a short time ..... sometimes they linger on ....... either way, i think the shadows are there for a purpose ...... to help us reflect ... move forward ....... or to stay to learn ......... at the moment .... i am patiently waiting ...... some test results are back ..... waiting to see another Dr. tomorrow ..... hoping i may know more ............................ i do not think it is horrible ...... praying for peace .... & moving forward ................. HE is the one in control ....... certainly not me ! .......................... thank you all for praying !    
..................................................................... i am blessed !

Autumn thoughts......

don't you just love the crispness in the air ......... even seems to slow down the pace a bit ......... openhouse was last weekend ......... pumpkins ........ fodder shocks .... mums ........ mr. prairie blue even came home to build a fire in the fire pit ..................... perfect ................... all of my favorite things on a perfect fall day ........ i must say .... i have never had more fun ...... nor more relaxed ...... no stress ....... & no explanation .... it makes no sense to me ....................................... i have been having some medical issues lately and have had a number of hospital tests ran ........ one of those things ....... not great timing, but i still pulled it off without stress ....................... go figure ...... i think it is a God thing ! ................... so as of now ... still ..... no results ... hopefully tomorrow ...... hopefully we will know something ......................... i do know that God is an all caring ..... loving ..... comforting God ........ and whatever it might be  ......... HE is the one in control ..... not me ................................ and ...........................
 ........................................................ i am still blessed !

Ready or not.......

well here it is .........that time again for our REAP THE HARVEST TOUR........
 don't you just love this time of year ......... where there is a little nip in the air ....... the smell of woodsmoke drifting across the valley ...... burning your favorite candle .......... the display of God's Glory on every hilltop .......... so ........ this is where i have been this week .................
 hoping to get back on to visit soon ......................... because i promised ................
.......................................................... i am blessed !
