Blessed Momma!

I do not know if a momma could be more proud than this momma. Really. Have I mentioned that I think I have incredible kids?! I know we all have great kids, but these are mine, ok?!!

December 002

Hannah has been working on the Etsy store, planning for the Farmers Market in the Spring and has been asked to have her photography featured on a food blog. She is a blessing to our family in so many ways. She cares about the environment, her family, and those less fortunate. We have great discussions on the church, scripture and how we in America have wasted so much money glorifying ourselves.

Sarah is sewing away on an apron for Hannah. It is adorable!! She is planning to make rag quilts for the Etsy store. She also is such a blessing to us. She is a deep thinker with a servants heart. She takes care of the laundry for us and rarely complains.

Hayden just finished the dishes while singing away. He turned around and said, "you know, I like doing this". Ok, the kid could just be crazy. He is now working on drawings for our chicken coop; front, back, side and inside. Yes, we are getting chickens. He is learning that hard work is enjoyable and a blessing. And he is a blessing to all of us.

We continue to look for ways to be more self-sufficent. Finances are less than FABULOUS, but God continues to be faithful. We are getting jobs set up for the Spring and the girls and I continue to look for ways to bring in income.

To be able to work together as a family in an area (finances) that can be so difficult is amazingly wonderful. Everyone understands that we have to cut back and each finds ways to be creative with their needs and wants.

To be a blessed momma is more than enough for this momma.

He has given food and provision to those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him; He will remember His covenant forever and imprint it [on His mind]. Psalms 111:5

Because my heart does not condemn me, I have confidence toward God; and whatever I ask, I receive from him, because I keep his commandments and do the things that are pleasing in his sight. 1 John 3:21-22
