Such a Lovely Rainy Afternoon....


Such a Lovely Rainy Afternoon we're having....

I do love a rainy day.  After the drought we've had for the last two years since the tornado, our flowers, grass and trees are thriving with all the rain we've had recently.  With the tornado in Moore, it would be easy to give in to fear every time the thunder rumbles.  I choose to trust in the Lord's protection.  When the weather report looks fearful, I plead the blood of Jesus over my family, our home, my son's home, my mother-in-love's home, the Joplin area, and the four-states.  I tell the wind and the lightening to stay up in the clouds and give us only good rain and good wind, not stormy wind.  It's all in the Name of Jesus Christ.  I also pray for peace for those who were affected by the tornado who may be feeling fear.  This is how I am dealing with my fear when it comes up.  I meet it with faith in God and His protection.

I've a nice chicken roasting in a clay pot in the oven.  I read for a little while today.  I'm not reviewing this book.  It's one I bought myself.  I'm just a little ways into it.  It's a big thick book.  I think it's going to take me awhile.
I'm going to put a load of laundry in the washer in a few minutes.  Then, I'll take a peek at our little peepers.

We've had them since Saturday.  Black Australorpes and Dominiques.

I hope these little pullets are all hens that keep us in lots and lots of eggs next year.

Now, I'd better go and get busy.  There are potatoes to peel and veggies to prepare for dinner.  Oh, and a little sibling squabble to check on. ~smile~  Such is motherhood.

Blessings from Harvest Lane Cottage,

  1. I hear that the clay roasters are amazing. I am on the look out for one at thrift stores.

    Your meal so great... enjoy!

  2. Do you slow bake your egg shells to give to your hens as calcium supplements? You can also take them yourself if you grind the shells, use within 3 days (1 tsp or so each day). You can also glue eggshells onto ordinary boxes to create a gorgeous finish, which is actually an ancient Vietnamese art. Pieces can sell for hundreds given the technique done.

Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments.

Be blessed!
