I am trying to make the best of each day the Lord has given me. My body is the temple of the Lord, and therefore it is my duty to keep myself healthy and more able to do the things He commands me to do. I want to be able to live a long healthy life to be able to enjoy by family and to enjoy doing things with my wonderful grandchildren.
The person who really wants to do something finds a way; the other person finds an excuse.

    I wouldn't say I live on a farm, but we do have chickens and goats on our little 5 acres of paradise. Nice to see we have a little in common. I am really looking forward to our cluster! If there is anything I can do to help encourage you, please let me know! emoticon

    I just read my spark mail and we are in a clover cluster together. Let's help hold each other accountable. I know I need it!

    Good evening. I was just on your page and see that you live on a farm. We do to, but ours is in ND. Farming and ranching is what my husband does for a living full-time. I have a full-time job in town, but sometimes I have to put on my "farm wife hat" and help him too. I also enjoy living someplace where we have four definite seasons. We had a cold spell over the holidays, now we've had a few nicer days, but we are bracing for snow, wind and cold by the weekend. It's fun to have you as a team member!
