If you'd like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know. Names will be kept for one week; around the world, people are praying.

Prayer Keeping ~ Maxine ~ Kurt ~ Timi and Miki ~ Nana's Grandson ~ Leigh ~ Sandra ~


  1. All excellent good advice! The Obamanations should take special notice of the "Never stand begging for that which you have the power to earn." but I know such wisdom is like throwing pearls amoung swine. ~:)

  2. Hi Sandra!
    Good quotes. Thank you!
    I hope this Sunday finds you warm and fed, peaceful and comforted by the Comforter.

  3. I count myself very rich, although not in money!

    Good quotes, and important.

  4. Please add Leigh to your list of those needing prayer.

    Excellent choices for this time of spending. Helps to bring perspective.

  5. Wonderful quotes! I agree!
    Peace and health to you. :)

  6. A great reminder for this time of year.


  7. True confession, I love Will Rogers!
    His quote is a great addition to your already great collection.

    And as a fellow writer, may I shamelessly announce the publication of my own homesteading book! (I'm so excited). Please come by my blog to take a look. :)

  8. A good choice of proverbs!

    I love the photo of the sheep!

  9. Pam, pigs make good bacon.

    Karen, thank you; Sunday is always a good day to stay home.

    Dewena, me but not wealthy.

    Midlife, hope Leigh is doing better.

    Lisa, and to you as well, thanks!

    Glenda, we're all so blessed.

    Leigh, Rogers was a many of great common sense. I'm going to include your book on a blog post this month.

    Dori, thank you.


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.
