As  I am making preparations for our Thanksgiving here at the farm, I am so thankful for our many blessings, to name them all would take so much time! Most of us are given reminders to be thankful during the month of November, cultivating a "thankful heart" all year is something I am working on. As Mr P. and I watch the news day after day, of the devastation in the Philippines, and now here in the USA, our hearts are so sadden for those who have lost so much! We truly recognize and are so "thankful" for our blessings. Please join us in prayer for these dear folks who have lost so much especially the loss of their loved ones.

from our home to yours,
wishing you a blessed 
Joining, and thanking  my dear friend Vee, for hosting November's notecards!
A Haven for Vee

I notice you use Scrap Nook...when I try to download it, it gives me a note that says I should only download if I am certain it's a safe site. Have you had any trouble with it?

You are always so encouraging I can tell that you have a Thankful heart.

your place is just beautiful, but not just from the decor, but because of your heart
Benjamin looked up at me the other day and said, "mom I want us to buy a farm". Why does he want one...because he has seen the beauty in yours...he has seen your heart
Happy Thanksgiving

Your home is beautiful.

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.
