God keep him safe! We do not have any family in service at this time. But our family history is deep in honor to this country.
Today I am reading a story of love in War World 11 and the Bennie is watching war movies and cooking on the grill.
Have a wonderful day Sue

Oh Sue, we sure love our service men and woman. My SIL is Marine. I'm awfully proud of him too, and of my daughter whose endured every one of his 4 deployments to some terrible places. The blessings we enjoy didn't come cheap and I wish people would be mindful of the sacrifices made for their freedom. This country needs to be prayed for. Thanks for a wonderful post!

Hi Sue!

What a beautiful post! Many thanks and hugs to your grandson, who selflessly serves our great country!

He and so many others are the reason we can even read the scriptures and worship without fear of persecution . . . they are so appreciated and loved!

God Bless America!

My Dad was a navy man, so sailors are near and dear to my heart! Congratulations to your grandson. I know you are proud!

We remember too, and are thankful. We need to pray for our nation.

I was looking for the first verse for my blog but couldn't remember the reference. Now I know thanks. : )
I remember when my husband got promoted to second class.
Congratulations to your grandson, and please thank him for his service!!

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.
