Harvest Lane Cottage is a place to find encouragement, and hopefully, be inspired to do, read, write, or cook something wonderful. Most importantly, I want to share my love for Jesus Christ with you. He is the center of my life, the center of who I am. No, I'm not perfect. I fail, I fall, I'm tempted, but I keep going back to the One who makes me clean again.

Relax, enjoy yourself, be refreshed. Then, please leave me a comment. I love it when my readers "talk back". I won't tell your momma, I promise!

Laura Lane

Happy in my Jesus and in my home.

A Fun Family Tradition... A Little Early for Us!

Family Pumpkin Carving 

We usually get so busy in October that we wait until November to carve pumpkins!  You see, we don't associate carving pumpkins with Halloween.  We just have fun seeing how we can clean all the yuck out and make something fun.  For years we have read a book called The Pumpkin Patch Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs.  I highly recommend it.  She shows how God has redeemed something for good just like He wants to redeem us if we'll accept Jesus as our Savior and let Him clean us up and give us a new countenance.



May God bless you all as you direct your attention to Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith.

Tuesday in the Cottage... A Little

On this lovely day at home....  

A little Bible...  I've got a new NKJV Study Bible that I'll be looking through today.  I want to look at the little extras they put in it to make it a study Bible.  I'll do some reading in the book of Philippians, too.

A little errand running...  A joyous no!  I don't even have the van today.  It's a stay home day.  Praise God!

A little cleaning... just a general clean up.

A little cooking...  I've got a nice roast that I'll sear well and put in the oven this afternoon with some carrots and onions.  I'll make some mashed potatoes and gravy, too.  

A little reading...  I'm reading a biography of George Mueller aloud to the children.

A little teaching time...  Spelling, math, and such.

A little knitting... Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth from Joy at Artful Homemaking.

A little computer time...  E-mail, linking a few posts to blog parties, reading a few blogs, and a little writing.

A lot of meetings... Another joyous no!  I do hope my oldest son will join us for dinner and pumpkin carving tonight.

A few minutes of relaxation, no doubt with a book, then a little sleeping.

Living and loving this life a little at a time.
