~A God who cares~

Written by Sue, Saturday,September 3, 2011                                                     A beautiful day, sunny, 80's temps.

Woke at 2:30 this morning out of a sound sleep I decided to go downstairs for a glass of water, while in the kitchen I heard these loud chirping sounds coming from the direction of the laundry room, I went and looked, and there the back door was wide open....

I first began to imagine all kinds of creatures that had come into the house. Creatures I do not like. especially snakes and mice. But I had a peace as I knew it was my Father God by His Spirit that had awakened me. It certainly was not Mr. P nor Lucy, as they both were sound asleep, each trying to out snore the other. ~smile~ I closed the door, went back to bed, thinking and thanking God for all of the times that He has taken care of us, yes, even when we do silly things such as not checking the doors.

I began to meditate on scriptures that spoke about how God feels about us, His children.

1Peter 5:7~casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Matthew 6:26~ "Look at the birds of the air,for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

 We are the apple of His eye!!   Zechariah 2:8~........for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. 

It is so hard for me to explain about God and His presence in my life,....  I remember earlier as I was about to walk upstairs something said inside,"check the backdoor," being tired I felt like it had already been taken care of by dh, so up to bed I went.... and it was at 2:30 I was awakened, thirsty, now I could have gotten the water upstairs, but didn't, for some reason(God), I was drawn to go downstairs. I don't believe this was coincidental, I believe it was ordained by my heavenly Father.... If only I had listened to that still small voice the first time,... Yes God does have some stubborn children, He knew I would need a wakeup call. ~grin~....

have some friends here in blogland that are going through some very difficult times right now, I want to encourage them by letting them, and anyone else who is being tested  to know that God's eye is forever on you, He knows exactly where you are at and He cares so much for you, He has not forgotten your circumstances."Be encouraged in Him".

This incidence is so small compared to what others are experiencing, but if God so cares about the small things in our lives how much more for the big things. Mr. P and I have and continue to face circumstances beyond our control, I am reminded of verses like the above, and stand on His promises..He does all these things because he loves us, and that He might be glorified in our lives.

Thinking of you on this Labor Day weekend, 
Enjoy it and be blessed

Comments are off, that you might rest in Him.

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
