Written by Sue, Sunday, July 23 2016,    sunny, hot temp high 90,s

Hello, dear friends, please overlook any grammar, and spelling errors that might be in this post as I am now home recuperating with bed rest from some  recent mini strokes and other health issues! I have missed everyone so much , you have been in my thoughts over the past weeks so much. When I started blogging eight years ago never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought that I would forged such wonderful friendships, you truly mean the world to me! I have always measured my friendships this way,... that when ever I see or hear from you that we would pick up right where we left off, and that is just what we here in bogland have always done!

The Doctors have told me of how lucky I am as I have no paralysis,  the strokes however affected my vision but it is slowly coming back, as I can attest by me being able to write this post, I can hardly wait to visit you all once again !

 I told them I am not lucky but so blessed! I  am also looking forward to sharing with you about the Christian Dr with whom God sent to pray with me when I first entered the hospital!
God is so faithful, in the movie The War Room I remember the line "God cannot be fired and He does not quit"! PRAISE HIS NAME FOR EVER MORE! PLEASE PRAY FOR ME AND MY CARE GIVERS THROUGH THIS TIME OF RECOVERY TO GOD BE THE GLORY.

With all my love,

Oh dear Sue I will pray for you and your recovery and your caregivers. PTL that he sent that doctor to pray with you, too. May God's healing hand be on you and I pray you will be comfortable while you heal. Hugs!

Lea July 24, 2016 at 9:02 PM  

Oh, Sue, this makes me sad and I will certainly be praying for your recovery and complete recovery. Do keep us posted as you can. Hugs abundant!

It was so nice to see your post pop up on my sidebar tonight, Sue.
You have been missed. Now I am so sorry to learn the reason for your absence from blogland. I am glad to know that you received such excellent care and are now on the road to recovery. Thank you for taking the time to update us and please know that I will be including you in my prayers. Sending healing thoughts and gentle hugs your way.

Oh my goodness Sue!! I had no idea, I will be praying and praying for you and for healing. Please keep us updated. I am so sorry.

So sorry to hear this, I know God is with you.
I got to see "The War Room" last month at or Church
it was in inspiring.
Rest well so you will be up and enjoying your garden soon.

Sweet friend, Angela and I were just talking about you a couple of days ago and how much we miss your posts. I read to her the card you sent me for Mother's Day and we talked about what an encourager you are and what a great mom you have. We've never met you face to face but you've had that kind of influence on us and many, many others. So hard tobe hearing the disturbing news of your health, but elated at the wonderful news of your recovery. I will be praying for you and praising God for His mercies, and look forward to hearing about the doctor you speak of. Take good care of you!

Debbie July 25, 2016 at 3:24 PM  

Oh Sue you've been on my heart soo much recently and now I know why! I am soo glad you are recovering and didn't suffer any long term issues with the mini strokes! I will add you to my daily prayer list! The older we get the more there is to deal with isn't there? My list gets longer everyday. But it's sooo comforting to know that at the end of the day we know are just passing through and someday we will sit in His presence with our PERFECT bodies and visit to our hearts content and praise Him. But in the meantime KNOW that you are loved by a great many, and most of all by Him, and take GOOD care of yourself. MUCH LOVE to you! Debbie

I was delighted when I saw a post from you in my in box, Sue.
I www sorry to hear about your stroke and will certainly be holding you and your caregivers up in prayer.
I look forward to hearing your story about your doctor praying with you in the hospital. God is so good to look after us in sending other believers across our path when we need support and love. Yes, you are blessed.

I am sorry to hear this! I will be praying for your swift and complete recovery! You are such a blessing and encouragement to all, and I hope you feel some of that blessing coming back to you!

Oh I am so sorry to hear of your medical problems, but so glad that things are going well. I will add you to my prayers. Yes, not lucky, but blessed. So true.
So nice to see you blogging. : )

Precious Sue, I heard about this from another blogger, who knew I kept up with you! Praise God for your recovery. Just a few weeks ago Benjamin ask if we could possible come to see you this summer. We both talked about how coming to see you one day was on our bucket list. We are praying for you...I told Benjamin today you were having some health issues. Do know we are covering you in prayer!!! We love you lady. Rest up, heal and what a joy to see you blog. I can't seem to get around to blogging, but still think of so many all the time. Hugs!!!!

Dear Sue,
What a surprise to read about your health.
Very happy to read that it's improving!!!

I have wondered how you were and have miss visiting the Farm. Please recover quickly... saying prayers for your and your family.

I'm a so sorry I haven't commented!
(I don't know how to follow you)

Vee August 21, 2016 at 9:38 AM  

Sue, I had to come looking for you this morning because you've been on my mind all week. I can't believe that you have been going through all this! Now I will know how to specifically pray. I am amazed that The Lord has brought you safely along without some of the complications that too often come with mini strokes. God bless you, Dear Friend. Look for some snail mail in the days to come. Love you!

Kathi October 13, 2016 at 9:41 AM  

Sue, I am so sorry about this medical condition. Praise God for a Christian doctor that God provided to comfort and encourage you. I am so glad that God is healing your eyes and that you have no paralysis. I too, have been away, so I did not see this post until today. God bless you sweet Sue. Kathi

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.
