Our Jesse tree is filling with ornaments. Most of the gifts have been purchased. Meals have been planned and life is […]

God Provides

This year our garden was nearly a bust! We started a little earlier with a backyard garden planted the end of April. We enjoyed some peas and lettuce and had hopes of carrots, onions, beets and potatoes. Only the potatoes materialized. (So far we have had 3 meals from our own potatoes and there are […]
