Weather, New Blog and a Prayer Request

Mornin' folks. Its warmed up a bit out here. Its now 32 with a mix of freezing rain, snow and hail. We didn't lose power down at the barn... praise the Lord! The cows are all milked and fed and I've got to get out the "lil Ford and push snow up on hill. Dad will be pushing it around with the International down at the diary barn.

The landscape is as pretty as can be today. Its funny how something that causes so much work and stress can be so pretty, if we only stop long enough to notice. The Hemlocks and Pines are heavy with snow. It takes my mind back to Leah and mines first winter in Alaska. Oh, how I wish there were a hundred or so Marten sets to check today! I can see and smell and taste our little cabin right now. Little voices are calling again......the darn little voices.

I'd like to welcome a new blogger to the family! Heres the description....

Reformed, covenantal, agrarian, homeschooling single parent who grows and concocts herbal products for home use. I am still paying bills from an income from a corporate job but we are shifting to living a simpler, self-sufficient, godly life.

Homestead Herbs is name, stop in and say hello.

I have a prayer request for you all. My younger brother is in the hospital with a very bad infection in his hand. It may be in his blood now, they don't know. The antibiotics are not working and they don't know if he is even going to make it now. It started with a sliver, and now hes in real bad shape. He is not a beleiver, so please pray that for his salvation as well as for his wife and sons.

Thank you for the kind welcome! I have so enjoyed reading your posts, and the other Agrarian bloggers. It's so exciting to meet other like-minded Christians!
I am praying for your brother's quick recovery. Keep us posted.

I, too, will pray for your brother, and ask my readers to do so, also.

May the Lord act in mercy toward him.
