Update on Me

I apologize for not being  active lately. I have had a writers block of sorts.  Anyway, it's been rather interesting since I have made a war room. The first week I suffered depression for no particular reason. That was very odd. A long time homeschooling mom I knew in Santa Barbara passed away, I discovered two people I know have serious health issues, a blog  I follow has been inundated with terrible anti-Christian comments over a recent post and it the list goes on.
I guess I should have expected weirdness to happen but all this just makes me more determined to pray.
Tomorrow is canning day for me. I plan to put away a few jars of pinto beans. They are great for making homemade refried beans. I hope to get over to Walmart and pick up a few pounds of boneless chicken. I want to put away some for chicken salad in the summer and soup in the fall.
I hope to plant some green beans this weekend or perhaps next. Well that's it my friends.
Until next time!

Mother's Day Can Be Difficult

 First of all I want to wish you ladies a Happy Mother's Day.
But Mothers Day can be very difficult for many reasons. There are women who desperately want to be mothers but God hasn't  given them neither biological children nor through adopted children.
There are  mothers who are estranged from their children so they will not get calls or cards on Mother's Day. There are mothers who have children who have passed away so there is a hole in their hearts. Some of us have moms in heaven and for some people this is their first Mother's Day without their mom. I'm reminded of blogger  Mandy Kelly as some of you know died in a house fire on March 21st including  her husband Scott, and two youngest children, Lizzie and Judah. They left behind two young teens Bekah and Jared. Let's remember them  today in prayer because these teens will also experience Father's  Day without their dad.

Today let's remember to be thankful for the blessings God has bestowed upon us.

Meet Little Bertha

  That thing  called a pressure canner. I had never pressure canned before because they look so menacing! Remember  on I Love Lucy when Ricky tried to pressure cook two chicken and the thing exploded?😦😄
Well I did a test run to familiarize myself with using Little Bertha(my name for the canner) scared me half to death when it was making strange noises. After watching another canning video I realized it was actually behaving itself the first time.

Anyway, my first pressure canning was a success. (After I got over the initial dear of the thing!) I canned three pints of beans and now I can't wait to try again!

Feeling Slightly Nervous

Since I made te space in my payer closet I'm sure my husband is thinking I've gone off the deep end. I too wondered as I was clearing space if I had finally lost my mind. If that is what it means to go to war for my family then I welcome "losing my marbles". My family is worth fighting for.We Christian wives and mothers must pray daily for our husbands and children. And we must always get into the Word. In my earlier post I mentioned having your Bible in your prayer room. I recommend a actual hard copy instead of the smartphone Bible app. I say  this because it's too easy to get distracted by the other apps on our phones like texts, Pinterest, etc. And besides there is nothing like the sound of Bible pages being turned!

My "War Room"

This is my small space in our master closet  that will be my war room prayer space. It's not much but  when you go to war with Satan, you don't need a lot of space. I have on the wall which isn't shown a label for requests and one for answered prayer. This means however God chooses to answer.
