Today I go BACK in time. I took this picture yesterday on our trek to get straw.
Today we celebrated the birthday of our youngest daughter Christyn. That is what she prefers to be called, but she will be Chrissy for all her life to her family. I made a big pot of chili and fresh cornbread and we chowed down. It was so fun just to have a relaxed day. I gave her an old book of poems that was her grandfathers. She loves poetry and cherishes the old books. Gave her a pretty red candle to go with it. She loved them both.
We had a wonderful service at church this morning. "Our own missionary" spoke and she touched my heart. She said I (me) am the one, This is the place and This is the time. No matter what life has for us, this spoke to my heart and I need to wait and see just what the Lord means for me from those three thoughts. Tammy is in the Ukraine. She is itinerating right now. It was so good to see her.
Have a Monday filled with whatever it is that makes you happy.
(Tomorrow's word is PINK)


  1. What a great gift--the book of poems from her grandfather--and the words for you.

  2. I have always wanted a windmill; why I do not know. Just the thought that if there is no electricity I have water, I guess. I have some books my grandfather wrote, I have made sure each of my children have the one he wrote of his and my grandmother's search for a house in Vermont. He had a very droll, dry wit and the book has some funnies. He also illustrated it!!!! NO artistic talent there. Must be where mine came from....LOL!

  3. I love that picture! Sounds like you had a perfect day with your daughter!
