Here's to the girls...

...that aren't afraid to sweat (not perspire) or get their hands dirty. The ones who will work all day alongside the guys pulling their fair share of the load. The ones who aren't afraid that they could break a nail. The ones who will clean up for a party then switch right to barn boots because the cows got out. They are the ones who fix fence, drive tractors, mow the lawn, throw hay bales, grow gardens, change oil, milk cows, run a chainsaw, own trucks, haul feed, muck barns, and pull calves then cry because God is good. You can always count on them to be a real friend, lend a helping hand, pull you out when your stuck, jump start your dead battery, give you their honest opinion and tell you the truth, and make anytime a good time. Sometimes they don't have the answer, don't know what to do, don't sing on key, don't get to church on time, don't always say the right thing, and don't heed well intended advice. These girls will always, be there when you need a listening ear or a tight hug, give you their shoulder to cry on then wipe away your tears, protect the underdog and the innocent, give generously, hold a good man's respect, love God wholeheartedly, and always try to dance in the rain. These girls are the ones who look like they have it all together but sometimes need, reassured, a hug, a box of tissues and a box of chocolates, someone to be their friend, a helping hand, quietness, rainbows, encouragement, to be told that they are beautiful, a promise, a new song, a hand to hold, and a reminder. A reminder that they are priceless. God bless girls like this.

Good measure pressed down and shaken together.

Proverbs 27:27 And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance of thy maidens.

Lol we had our first "date" this past Saturday. I picked him up @ 4 and we had a delightful evening. Snuggles and kisses. :) Can't wait till next time! I was a little late (OK a lot) getting down to the barn. The kids weren't very happy. :$

A Farmer is...

A good farmer is nothing more nor less than a handyman with a sense of humus.

The farmer is the only man in our economy who buys everything at retail,sells everything at wholesale, and pays the freight both ways. JFK

Today's Blessings.

To some people they are just a weed, but to me they are a reminder that God loves us so much he made a special miracle that would bloom along our path even when the sun isn't shining.


Take time to enjoy the little things and remember that each day is a gift.

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.

God grant me the humility to ask for help, the strength to do it myself, and the wisdom to know the difference.

 Pain is just weakness leaving your body.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

When the waves are taking you under hold on just a little bit longer, this is gonna make you stronger.

Long days, short nights, sickness, pain, sorrow, stress, tears, hardship. How you respond to it is what makes you the person you are. You can hide under the umbrella or you can dance in the rain. The choice is yours. 

I was raised believing that "can't" never did anything.

It's your life, what are you going to do? The world is watching you, every day the choices you make say what you are and who your heart beats for.

Tears don't mean you are weak. Strong people cry then they wipe the tears away and get back up and go on.

Dance like no one is watching.
Dance like there is no tomorrow.
 Dance for those who can't.
 Dance for those who won't.
Dance for life and for yourself. 
Just dance.

Young ladies, this is so true. Be true to you. God made you not a clone of the girl you are standing beside. You are a unique original masterpiece. Don't Mar his handiwork with frivolous aspects and attitudes. A real man won't ask  or expect you to be anyone but yourself. And that girl who is herself will be truly treasured by a real man.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.

Little by little, step by step.


This is one of my favorite songs. I often find my self here on my knees then he reaches out and helps me stand. Sometimes just strengthening me. Sometimes a kind word or a hug from a friend. Sometimes the criticism of those who dislike me. But I always know he will be there.
He is my strength.

God made a farmer.

Its something you have to be called to, a part of who you are and only it can truly satisfy that burning within.
