And no one can deny it

Your mind they'll ease 
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling."

  13. I think the heart is the key to successful Christian living. We usually think of thoughts and feelings as being separate entities, but biblically they are tied because one feeds the other.

  15. Levi looks delicious!!!

    Thank you for the sentences!

  16. Lovely. I've been reading your blog posts. Because of your courage, many women will feel less alone when they begin the journy from wife to widow. I do hope you will share with the women of Rural Women Rock soon.

    Kasse D.

  17. Everyone should experience life on a farm, even for a week or a day... So many hardships, greater rewards.
    I love coming to your farm, even virtually is so inspiring. I come to your farm to rest my soul.
    Happy Valentines Day ~ hearts, love and buckets of blessings to you!

  18. "It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." Love that one. It sounds like my beloved paradoxian G.K. Chesterton.

  19. You've given me some more quotes for my journal! Sweet hugs!


Thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; may God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. My goal is to respond, here, to your comments although it may take a while.
